tetsujin070561: okonomiyagi: This version of Battle Rice is from Pony Canyon VHS tapes, an official product of Fuji TV. So, it has been seen outside Japan, but not on USA television.

okonomiyagi: Looks like Kitchen Stadium Thailand got a pretty sweet makeover. The not-so-sweet stuff: they've adopted the new American format. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNEN5ZwrpNk

Iron Chef Mandy: That's the thread. I first assumed that didn't fly with staff...

Nothing up about this yet? I'll start.
I liked the battle; I thought it was cool that they had the ingredients that were most likely there for the first Thanksgiving instead of just the stuff we see all the time.
I mostly agreed with the score. Although Mo is my favorite and I'm always hoping for a win from him, Flay's and Symon's food just looked much better to me, something I'd definitely want to eat! I was not surprised they won on taste (in fact, I thought they'd win by more), but I was a bit surprised they beat Mo and Cora for originality.
I liked the judges and was glad that judge with the long hair from "Next Iron Chef" wasn't there. He really got on my nerves during NIC and still gets on them when he judges on ICA.
I miss ICJ and I'm going to go visit that thread where you can DL episodes!

I think they earned the originality point because they tried to reinterpret the classical Thanksgiving dinner, whereas Morimoto/Cora tried to combine Southern and Eastern traditions without re-interpretation.
There's another Holiday Battle coming up, between Cora and Symon:

The Thanksgiving Showdown was one of my favorite Iron Chef America battles. It was a lot of fun, and the food all looked delicious.
My favorite part had to have been when IC Symon gave the Chairman a funny look after he gave his speech before the battle, and IC Flay turned to Symon and whispered "he could kill you in three seconds."
