Iron Chef Gauntlet



Iron Chef Gauntlet


Tuesdays from 6 November at 8.30pm Channel 018

The greatest title in the world of food is back! Seven of the hottest rising chefs from across America will face the most feared ingredients from around the globe, while battling each other with every ounce of skill strategy and stamina they possess to become the Iron Chef. Each week one will rise and one will fall until a single chef is left standing. This culinary gladiator will summon the courage to face the ultimate final battle to beat three legendary Iron Chefs in rapid succession; Bobby Flay, Masaharu Morimoto, and Michael Symon. In the end they will either leave in utter defeat or make history and join the coveted ranks of the Iron Chefs.

For the first Chairman’s Challenge, host Alton Brown jump starts the proceedings by serving up an array of wild ingredients and the chefs must use their expert techniques to make a top-tier dish right out of the gate. Alton determines the most and least successful dishes and the bottom-rated chef is thrown into the deep end for a ‘Secret Ingredient Showdown’ against a competitor chosen by the winner. Dishes are presented to judges Donatella Arpaia and Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian, and one competitor is sent home.
