Saturday's Stupid Thread: Your Favourite Iron Chef

Sat Jan 12, 2008 5:40 am

I was just watching a few Iron Chef vids from the original Japanese show and I was wondering, who's your favourite Iron Chef?

I'm personally a bit split, but I'm leaning towards Morimoto and "King of Iron Chefs" Sakai.

I like Morimoto, although I rarely watch the Japanese version.

From Iron Chef America I like Bobby Flay.

My favourite is Chen Kenichi, and, what was that Kobe guy about (the italian-japanese guy) he was like never on the show.


Favourite American one is Batali (even though my old boss whooped Flay a**)

Bobby Flay no doubt. Least favorite would have to be Cat Cora.

He was rarely on the show. Many of his fights were pre-arranged, that means that he was in advance designated for those battles due to his "unofficial" status as junior Iron Chef (he was called junior Iron Chef because he doesn't have decades of experience as chef like Chen, Sakai, Morimoto, Michiba, etc.).

On Iron Chef America:

Mario Batali . . .

Cat is cute. Morimoto is good. Bobby Flay is an ass.

Mario is a great Chef . . . I particularly enjoy the way he explains the roots of what he's preparing, it's regional nuances, etc.

On the Original

Chen Kenechi

Has to be Batalli all the way. The guy is one bad ass chef. I was very impressed with his battle against Jamie Oliver recently, since Jamie is a great chef in his own right and both of them were very imaginative and creative in their dishes.

Cat Cora is the most pleasing to look at though...  biggrin

Cat Cora



As for Iron Chef America, I'm not really that much into the show, but suffice to say that, along with Morimoto, I'm split between Cora (because of her Aegean/Mediterranean style) and Batalli (because of his Italian style). What I would like to see is Batalli taking on Iron Chef Kobe. Too bad the original Iron Chef sticked with Bobby Flay vs Morimoto and didn't choose Batalli for a battle with the so-called Prince of Pasta.

Agreed 100%. Cat is attractive. Morimoto when he speaks, is a riot. Flay is highly over-rated.
Batali is entertaining. Symon is okay, too new to form an opinion yet.

On the original Japanese version, I liked Sakai the best. I also liked that show better, it was so campy and fun to watch when drunk in college.

On the American version, I like Batali too. Symon is OK, but I would have preferred John Besh. I'd like to see one of the American ICs take on Gordon Ramsay. That would be an interesting battle.

Quoting Kmh1956 (Reply 16):

He claims to be the nephew of Chairman Kaga, which is absolutely not true even if it was just an act, because:

1. Chairman Kaga never existed in real life. It was all part of the show.
2. For Mark Dacascos to be the nephew of Chairman Kaga, he looks much too Latino to be him.

Bottom line, as far as chairmen goes, Chairman Kaga rules! He has style, charisma, was brave enough to bite into a bell pepper and actually eating it (though he looks like he doesn't like the taste of it)

And "The Chairman" from ICA sucks.

BTW: Could someone from ICA let the Iron Chefs wear a cook's dress of their choosing, like on the original Iron Chef? The blue dresses just suck. This is also where Iron Chef The Original excelled. The chefs had dresses on that basically fitted their style of cooking (Sakai in almost the same red as the French flag, Morimoto in silver with the American and Japanese flag on his back to show that he's into Neo-Japanese cuisine, Chen in plain but recognisable Chinese style clothes in yellow, and Kobe with his silver dress with strips of the Italian flag on it).

Hmm, tough choice all around.

I like Masaharu Morimoto for his refusal to back down against the Ohta-faction (I think that's what they were called) and the endless number of battles against their chefs.

I like Chen Kenichi for his unique approach to cooking (Am I wrong in remembering he once made fried a duck in cola?)

.. and I like Hiroyuki Sakai due to all the French cooking battles.

In her previous life perhaps...she now prefers sushi over sausage.

When she isn't flying to New York or elsewhere for tapings, Cora lives with her partner, Jennifer, and year-old son, Zoran, in a compact, cream- colored townhome in an enclave off Interstate 80.

Without a doubt, Morimoto. Both shows.

Quoting LTU932 (Reply 4):
(he was called junior Iron Chef because he doesn't have decades of experience as chef like Chen, Sakai, Morimoto, Michiba, etc.).

Actually, the main reason was because he didn't own a restaurant. This was also a criticism of Morimoto-san, but his status as executive chef of one of the world's best Japanese restaurants and his later opening of a restaurant changed that.

The blue dresses just suck.

If I recall, on the finale of "The Next Iron Chef" they stated that new jackets would be debuting soon that were designed by Mark Ecko.

From original Iron Chef, I liked Morimoto once he came on - prior to that, Chen Kenichi. Never could like Sakai as he reminded me entirely too much of an asshole orchestra conductor I had in college. I loved Morimoto's unorthodox approach in a nation which seemed very culinarily orthodox. That and the aforementioned battles between the Ohta Faction were always fun, so much so that you saw later similar battles between Serie A and Kobe and Club Mistral and Sakai.

From Iron Chef America, I'd give it to Batali or Flay. I enjoy watching them cook, Flay because his food consistently looks amazing and Mario for that and because he gives so much information abou the food - and I love watching him and Alton Brown interact.

The thing I'd love ICA to do would be to take a page from Iron Chef and have Alton compete against an Iron Chef (I'm referencing two epis of Iron Chef where Dr. Hattori challenged Iron Chefs). If we can watch Paula "two sticks of butter" Deen compete, why not someone who has been to cooking school and represents the culinary point of view of the everyday sort of guy?

If we can watch Paula "two sticks of butter" Deen compete, why not someone who has been to cooking school and represents the culinary point of view of the everyday sort of guy?

And one thing I appreciated from the original Iron Chef is that they wouldn't have even let Paula Deen participate in it because they required the chefs to be as professional as possible (not to mention the competitors had to be actual chefs). And yes, ICA should have Alton Brown have a battle.

No idea about ICA, but for the original Iron Chef, I only found this book.

http://www.amazon.com/Iron-Chef-Official-Kaoru-Hoketsu/dp/0425180883

It does contain apparently a selection of the 10 best dishes, selected by Chairman Kaga. It's in English, so no worries about language barriers. And there's this book from Iron Chef Morimoto, but unlike the IC book which is more of a summary of certain recipes and interviews, this is apparently a genuine cookbook.

Actually I just saw Morimoto's cookbook in one of our local stores yesterday!

I have Bobby Flav's and I have seen others by Kora and Batali.

Still they don't have the recipies they cooked on the show.

Probbaly because in some cases they don't want those recipes to EVER see the light of day, like bacon ice cream.  vomit

Actually, bacon deserts have become rather popular, for some strange reason.
