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.

Man Alive!: The presentation on Iron Chef Thailand is really slick! The set, graphics, and music are all fantastic.

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...

herringchoker: ICM - If you're referring to the post about Todd English getting arrested, I remember seeing it. But it seems to be gone now...very odd.

Long time, Tets. Good to see you again. Wow, I didn't know her father's great job, thank you.:) Her elegantly delivered signature phrase “oishugozaimasu” (this is delicious) is still very popular in Japanese gourmet TV shows even among young people who watched Iron Chef show in their young days.
I am surprised at not only her father's great job but also that her mother was a descendant from royal family of ancient Ryukyu (now called, Okinawa: south islands of Japan) Dynasty. Indeed. She was elegant, inteligent and big-hearted. I now understand why she wrote some books about Okinawa cuisine.
Great people from this great show, Iron Chef are getting gone one by one... so sad. Naomi Kawashima who appeared several times in this show, both of original and 2012 version has passed on, too, on 9/24, whose husband is Toshi Yoroizuka; he appeared in Strawberry–Dessert Battle in ICJ 2012 series... Toshi was cried a lot.
Anyway I am greatful that we, gourmet fans and IC fans are standing on the joy of their achievement.

Long time, Okonomiyagi. Yes, It was sad. We liked her so much. She was a pioneer of food journalist in Japan. She respected all chefs and food culture. And also it was her who nominated Chen and Michiba to be Iron Chefs. I really pray for her. RIP.
Her recipe site’s staff posted: “As everyone’s mother, she has delivered lots of happiness and smiles through her home cooking recipes over 50 years. It was just her pleasure that everyone has “full of smiles” days through home cooking. During her long recuperation, she had been talking to her recipe site’s staffs with smile, drinking her favorite coffee, “Even if I die, I would be so happy that my delicious home cooking recipes would stay as each home’s cooking culture forever.”
Anyway so sad...!!
