The Next Iron Chef

As I mentioned the upcoming show The Next Iron Chef during my post on Mario Batali, I thought I would share some more information on the show for those of you who have not read about it yet. The premise of the show is similar to the Who Wants to be the Next Food Network Star in that there are a number of contestants, eight to be exact who are in competition to be part of the Food Network. In this particular case however, they will become part of the show Iron Chef America.

The series will begin with Alton Brown traveling the country looking for the top ten chefs in the country to qualify as the next Iron Chef. The series will continue with the chefs showing the chairman why they should take the honor. One of the judges will be Andrew Knowlton, restaurant editor for Bon Appetit magazine.

The show will premiere on Sunday, October 7, at 9:00 p.m. EST.

Aaron Sanchez chef-owner of Paladar and Centrico both in NYC
