Iron Chef America

Yodeling catfish Not having a television means that my perusal of cooking programmes is, to say the least, limited. But at least I can find out about them on the internet and the playful online adverts for Iron Chef America – which include a yodeling catfish – certainly make me want to see this series although I’ve no idea when it will be screened in New Zealand.

I had heard a little about the original Japanese show, which comprised of a couple of chefs competing against each other and the clock to cook a meal featuring a mystery ingredient which is revealed at the beginning of each episode. Last year the Food Network (who recently made an appearance here, filming Anthony Bourdain at Savour New Zealand) made a very successful American version.

The second series of Iron Chef America has just started on US TV and, judging from the adverts, there’ll be skin and hair flying! See for yourself here and the official website is here.
