    Re: Food Network

    I'd just like to see at least one female chef on ICA.

    But I'm also not convinced that these competitions are the best way to find a new iron chef, regardless of gender. It's kind of like the Next Food Network Star. I don't think that's the best way to develop new talent for the network either. The only one of the winners of that one to really take off is Guy Fieri.

    I have to say, I was a bit surprised.... not that the winner isn't good, but I just thought.....

    You thought what? That they might choose someone who was more inventive? Who, imo, turned out better looking plates (I'm sorry, but that risotto looked awful to me--and I actually like all the ingredients in it)? Who could bring something to the ICA competition that the other iron chefs don't have in terms of a particular skills set? That it might occur to them that it wouldn't be a bad idea to have, you know, a woman Iron Chef (if it's true that Cat Cora is no longer on the show--I haven't seen it in a while)?

    Yeah, I was dumb enough to think that too. Good thing I'm not a huge fan of ICA anyway.

    Re: Food Network

    I wasn't surprised because of the editing. When this season started, I thought it was the producer's intention to have a female winner (and I'd like to see another female chef on IC).

    My husband watched last week's show yesterday and asked who I thought would win. I said Zakarian because every episode there was a clip of Faulkner saying she was the next iron chef. Also the editing didn't portray her well. I went from feeling neutral about her at the start of the show to not liking her. I thought perhaps the editing of her was manipulated to produce this response so that viewers would be happy with the winner.

    I thought her dishes were more inventive, they looked yummy, I thought she showed plenty of personality and I thought they would want to have at least one IC woman as Cat isn't on the who anymore (at least it appears that way).

    I was hoping the Foodnetwork was done with the "good old boys" network. I like Zakarian and think he will do well in competitions. Hopefully he will develop a personality.

    I would agree with the dumping of Garces and Forgione but was never a fan of Faulkner, but that is why there are several different chefs

    I think the quote (I don't remember who said it) "Chef Zakarian is at his prime (pinnacle) and Chef Faulkner is a rising star," is how they based their decision. They chose experience since they were comparing apples and oranges between the two.

    When I heard that, I was kind of clued into him winning, but I thought somehow it might have worked in her favor. I'll be curious to see his first battle.
