Fresh off the release of his latest studio album, VIEWS, Drake is busy making the late-night talk show rounds again. On Thursday, the 6 God let the Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon bounce basketballs off his face, and tomorrow, Drizzy will serve as both host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live—his second stint in roughly two years.
Hopefully the appearance will mean another now-legendary bar mitzvah sketch, but Drake's return to SNL isn't only a treat for viewers. The rapper surprised the show's cast during rehearsal Wednesday night with a meal catered by none other than celebrity chef and Food Network star Bobby Flay.
According to People, the meal included chicken and shrimp, as well as a dessert (by the looks of the photos, the espresso bread pudding from his Soho restaurant, Gato). SNL's Cecily Strong and Jay Pharaoh both posted photos from the dinner, proving that Flay really did show up to deliver the food in person. "Drake gave us a Bobby Flay dinner and this is the best day of all of our lives," Strong wrote in her post.
Two weeks ago, Flay snapped a photo with Drake while visiting Toronto, saying he and Canadian chef Susur Lee had been cooking for the rapper. The SNL meal could have been in the works for days, and last year it was rumored that the rapper had opened a restaurant with Lee in Toronto called Fring's. The restaurant's title was thought to be a reference to a pet name for Drake's maybe-not-so-platonic friend, Rihanna, but the rapper later explained the term's Jamaican patois origins.
"It’s just something you pull from your own emotions, from a happy time," he told the New York Times. "We’d say, ‘Last night you were so fringed To get the real definition of Fring’s, you need to come to the restaurant. Ask a chef, ask a server, and everyone’s definition will be something different.”
