Sanji Himura: Depends. If you actually visited the place, then it would go under Restaurant Recommendations. If not, then maybe under Iron Chef/Challenger discussion.

okonomiyagi: Say I want to post a restaurant review of a chef featured on an iteration of the show: would that go under the board for the show, or under Iron Chef/Challenger discussion?

ironnut77: Sanji - I believe that "two victory" rule was in the very early days of the original show, scrapped after 1993 or so.

Sanji Himura: Few were brave enough to try it in ICJ, I can count a few of them off the top of my head, Toshiro Kandagawa is a top contender.

Sanji Himura: Tell me the truth here. Am I the only one who is slightly put off over the fact that the challenger in the final battle did NOT get to pick her Iron Chef of choice to do battle with? Two victories over an IC in ICJ earns a chef IC status...

Man Alive!: Those were the days! Kitchen Stadium took in many refugees from the wonderful Iron Fans community. I miss the old crew!

ironnut77: rosdaddy - ManAlive was indeed with us on IronFans. A bunch of the IronFans members followed him here once that site was defunct. Sadly, not many remain active today.

rosdaddy: Hey ManAlive - Nice to digitally meet you (or, re-meet if you were on the boards back in the early oughts)

Man Alive!: I'm still here! My heart swells every time I see renewed interest in Iron Chef!
May 5, 2022 1:38:18 GMT -5
ironnut77: Haven't seen ManAlive in a while - hope all is well, and that he can see the slight uptick in activity on this site recently. ICJ is STILL alive!

icfanus5: Hello all and Happy New Year! Long time IC fan. Started watching when I was probably 10 or 11 years old, I'm 35 now! I'm sad to see a lot of the people no longer with us, like Kobe and Kandagawa.

Everybody Gone? Okay.
About the battle:
After the victories by the new Iron Chef French and Chinese, it was the new Iron Chef Japanese Jun Kuroki's turn to do battle in the new Kitchen Stadium. The nominee this go around is a French chef supported by the ministry of agriculture, forestry and Fisheries and was presented by two men from the department(I assume). There was an Ota faction-like turnout for the nominee, but will the Iron Chef Japanese work around that?
Each chef to my count presented five dishes, including a dessert by the nominee(not so sure about the Iron Chef). There was a mishap by the nominee as the herbs that he was cooking burned on the grill pan, but I am not sure if that was intentional.
Best Dish from the Nominee: Croquettes with a sauce.(presented as dish 2)
Best Dish from the Iron Chef: Meatball soup with mushroom(not sure when it was presented).
The Judges: We know of three that were on the panel, Rokusaburo Michiba, Yuki Uchida, and Ikuta Toma.
The Verdict: The Nominee Won 3-2.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
I'm watching this now. I'm just through the video about the challenger at the beginning. When they were talking about the Ryori Masters group at the beginning of it, I said out loud, "I wonder if this will be the new Ota Faction."
And to everyone, I should have an HQ version up on the site by tonight. (I can't do much during the day today because I'm at work, but I'll get it uploaded as soon as I get home.)
I'm still impressed by the presentation of this series. It's very enjoyable to watch, even with the language barrier. There's a sense of reverence for the original series and all of those who participated in it, and the show moves the format forward into the modern TV era in such an elegant way.
Part of me wonders if Alton Brown has seen this yet. He's a noted fan of the original series, so I bet he'd enjoy this revival.
