Iron Chef Showdown (Food Network) – Premieres 8th November – Renewed
Yet another version of Iron Chef, where in this iteration two professional chefs enter the Kitchen Stadium where they face off against each other in the bid to see if they can beat an Iron Chef.
In the first round the two pros have 30 minutes where they have to incorporate the given secret ingredient the best they can into a dish of their choosing. At the end of the round the host Alton Brown then picks the best dish, where the winner then gets to go head to head against an Iron Chef.
In the second round the two are given an hour to create a three course meal using secret ingredients revealed by the Chairman. After 20 minutes into the challenge the two have to serve the starter to the judges where they give a score to the two while they cook. At the end of the hour the remaining to dishes are served and judged, and a winner is decided.
It’s a show where if you like Iron Chef, this is more of exactly the same stuff you’ve seen before.
