Real men cook with fire
The Next Iron Chef
was superb tonight. For the challenge of the evening, all the foods available to cook with were wild.
And, they were chosen in secret by the other chefs. To top it all off, they had only charcoal grills to cook with and a limited pantry of standard ingredients. It looked for all the world like a Boy Scout challenge.
This meant that I could identify with the ups and downs of the chefs' cooking far more than normal. Man, I know
what cooking on an open fire is all about. I was impressed with the results!
Meanwhile, going back over the list of things I said I'd like to see featured as a secret ingredient on Iron Chef America,
someone noted that Ostrich had already been used. So, here's my replacement candidate for a future Secret Ingredient:( Collapse )
