"Iron Chef Gauntlet"
“Iron Chef Gauntlet” is an elite competition that will see seven of the most-renowned culinary superstars face off in the hopes of securing the ultimate culinary title: Iron Chef. But for a chance at this coveted crown, these hopeful challengers will have to prevail over not just each other, though that’s indeed a crucial element to success. After five weeks of Chairman’s Challenges, judged by Kitchen Stadium guru Alton Brown, and all-or-nothing Secret Ingredient Showdowns, the last chef standing will enter a three-ringed gauntlet.
It’s in that pressure-packed finale that the remaining challenger will put his or her culinary skills on the line and battle not one, not two, but three Iron Chefs — Bobby Flay, Masaharu Morimoto and Michael Symon — with as many Secret Ingredients. To reign supreme on Iron Chef Gauntlet and earn the title of Iron Chef, that contender must demonstrate not just personal and professional discipline, but also a keen understanding and obvious mastery of that which every Iron Chef is judged against: taste, presentation and creativity.
Upcoming episodes include:
“Into the Wild” - For the first Chairman's Challenge, Alton Brown jump-starts the proceedings by serving up an array of wild ingredients, and the chefs must use their expert techniques to make a top-tier dish.
