    The Next Iron Chef - Food Network

    Sunday, October 7, 9/8c on Food Network

    This October, Food Network cranks up the burners-and the stakes---in Kitchen Stadium with The Next Iron Chef, a new reality show that will award one chef with the world's most coveted culinary title: Iron Chef.

    Eight top chefs from around the country will compete to join the ranks of Mario Batali, Cat Cora, Bobby Flay and Masaharu Morimoto and be launched into instant fame.
    I'm so excited for this! These are established chefs and not hopefuls trying to get a break, should be awesome plus Alton is there HEEE!

    Link to show if you want to read the chef bio's and stuff.

    I'm really excited for this show. Especially Alton. I've seen John Besh numerous times both on Iron Chef America and as a competitor and a judge in several of the Food Network's other competition shows.

    I am actually looking forward to this as season 3 of Top chef was so disappointing.

    I recognized a few of the chefs. Although the Web site would only let me read ONE bio. Me not happy about that.

    But it is my anniversary and I've had a couple of glasses of bubbly (hubby is on the other computer in the room ... so romantic) ... so everything is good

    Word has it that Mario will not be on the show any more.

    Where did the word come from?

    eG Forums -> Batali, Food Network, and Iron Chef: Summary

    Here is the egullet thread with several articles about it. I read it first on a news source that quoted the NY Post.

    Apparently, someone is leaving--I suspect Morimoto will leave.

    Morimoto? Thought you said that word was that Mario was leaving. Are they both leaving? I guess I can see that (because they are busy) but dang... I don't like Cat! The new people would have to be excellent to get me to keep watching because Bobby isn't on enough.

    I think its just adding another chef because they have multiple shows and their own restaurants to run and its probably just too much and they just need another chef to take some of the load off.

    The only one I've read about is Mario. Flay's site says that someone is leaving, but doesn't say who. My feeling, from watching him on both versions, is that Morimoto and his cooking don't fit the Food Network mold. He doesn't have many battles, he often loses, and he doesn't like to lose. That is just my personal opinion, and I will be happy to be proved wrong. He is also the only one of the chefs whose cookbook I have purchased.

    If I tallied the wins right, it's

    Cora 8-5-0
    Flay 15-7-2
    Batali 16-4-0
    Morimoto 7-6-1

    Morimoto hasn't appeared in any of this new season's episodes, but there have only been 5.

    Flay and Batali are my favorites because they both have a good sense of humor which sometimes comes out in the interplay with Alton.
