Iron Chef America

For those of you who have always wondered about Iron Chef America I researched the behind the scenes info tonight while....whilst?....whilst we were watching tonights show. Every time we watch, dan asks, "How the heck do they always know EXACTLY what to make and how do they have the perfect ingredients?" well duh they let them know ahead of time but heres how it works.....

In each episode, chefs have one hour to cook and improvise a multicourse meal around a theme ingredient that must be present in each dish. Before the actual taping, the chefs are given a short list of possible themes, allowing the producers of the show to get any ingredients that may be needed. Judges' primary goal was said to be determining which chef was able to "best express the unique qualities of the theme ingredient." In rare cases, the format changes.

Now you know the secret! for more info check out...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Chef

That's interesting. So those cooks aren't as good as we think. I've always liked the original Iron Chef better because of the great dubbing.
