DVD of the Day #148 - Iron Chef USA

Please note, this is not the shitastic fake Iron Chef that airs on the Food Network that is a disgrace to the classic program. These matches are not mixed, the contestants aren’t alerted to the ingredient ahead of time. The cooks aren’t shit and the judges aren’t retarded. This is not Iron Chef America - this is Iron Chef USA.

For those of you that don’t remember, UPN tried an Americanized Iron Chef back in the year 2000. Only two episodes were filmed and it was pretty much a straight lift from the Japanese concept rather than what currently airs. It even had a B-Movie actor called William Shatner playing the Chairman in much the same way that Jesus ChristKaga played the chairman in the original Iron Chef.

The chefs here are actually awesome. Where the Food Network version only has Mario Batali and Morimoto that are quality (Seriously, fuck Flay, Coro and Symon), Iron Chef USA had four amazing chefs. Todd English, Iron Chef America. Ray Yamaguchi, Iron Chef Asia, Jean Francois Meteigner, Iron Chef France, and Alessandro Siratta, Iron Chef Italy. Oddly enough neither Heather nor I had heard of Iron Chef Itallian, but the’s a 2 star Michelin chef, so nice. I’ll have to check him out next time I’m in Vegas.

There are only two battles on here. The first is Iron Chef America Todd English against Kerry Simon in battle Crab and Siratta vs. Marcus Samuelsson in BATTLE ORGANIC FREE RANGE TURKEY. Both battles were a lot of fun, and it was interesting to see that even though this DVD is nearly ten years old, the dishes were amazing and far ahead of their time. It’s too bad they didn’t keep this series up, albeit with better commentators, as this was a lot more fun to watch than Iron Chef America. Shatner was awesome, the food was neat and the judges, inlcuding Ron Popeil knew what they were doing.

For five dollars, this rare little DVD was quite the prize and a nice way to cap off an wacky evening. Now if only the original Iron Chef would get released on DVD. .

Is It Worth Keeping? Yes
