ishinabelover111: I've gotten back into iron chef after I recalled watching it whenever it aired on SBS, but I am struggling to find any sort of solid archive for the show that is still maintained today. ironchefdb.com only has links to youtube videos and not enough info

Hattori: "The Iron Chef has broken out azuki beans, and those have got a nice red colour. Now, normally these are used for sweet applications in Japanese dishes. Remember I mentioned an-pan? The bean paste for that snack uses these. Now it's a little early to call, but with scalded cream and egg yolks I think we're definitely going to see a dessert from him."

Hattori: "Crusty cubes. I see. We're probably going to be looking at croutons here. And with those roasts out, I'm going to guess: dishes with some kind of savory bread stuffing.
And Kaifu-sama: I wouldn't put it beyond Morimoto to try a squid-ink bread pudding. That's the way his thought processes work, which is why he's considered a pioneer in neo-Japanese cuisine. Just remember that you're the one who gets to taste them and not me! "
Hirano: *chuckles* "You just had to say that, didn't you Hattori-sensei? Tasting Morimoto's dishes is always an adventure."
Ohta: Fukui-san! The Iron Chef has notified me that there will be a type of curry, maybe made with some fish but definitely with some seafood. When I asked him how difficult the theme ingredient was, he said that it would require some creativity but we'll see what happens. When he said that, he had that Morimoto confident sly smile.
Mamma James has had her nephew gather some eggs, beef and pork for her dishes today. She also plans on having five dishes. When asked the same question as the Iron Chef, she said that it would be easy because a great deal of Southern American cooking involves bread. She then said "I gotta dirty-up". With that comment she shooed me away with a smile. Back to you Fukui-san.
Fukui: Thanks, Ohta! It sounds like both chefs are quite confident with their strategies, so it will be interesting how this battle plays out. It seems like both the Iron Chef and the challenger are taking two completely different approaches to the theme ingredient!
Momma: Jimmy dear, can you get those cornish hens and start soaking them in that buttermilk? Oh, your such a good boy, dear.
*Glances over her shoulder to make sure Jimmy is following her specific instructions, then goes back to cubing her beef. As momma finishes up cubing her beef and pork, Jonny brings over a clasped box and places it in front of Momma. Momma places the cubes of meat in a plastic bag and then picks up the box. Before opening she looks around to make sure Jimmy is nowhere around . She opens the box carefully and inside is a bottle of spices. The bottle says “Momma's secret spices – Stay out! This means you JIMMY!* She opens the bottle and adds a generous amount of spice to the bag. After locking her spices away and hiding the box, she vigorously shakes the bag and coats all the meat, then puts them in the pressure cooker to brown.
Momma: Jonny, now that your done with those eggs, dear, can you add some melted chocolate and condensed milk and mix them together? Thank you, dear.
*Momma grabs a large onion and cubes it before adding it to the pressure cooker. She then carefully selects from fresh chillies before adding them as well. Finally she adds a large can of tomato sauce before locking on the lid and turning her attention to her next task.*

Hattori: "Squid ink and vanilla beans -- what did I tell you, Kaifu-san?
"And Momma James is preparing her meat in what looks like a Texas-style chili, with a special spice mixture added to the meat. We'll have to get Ohta to tell us at least three of the ingredients for that mix -- obviously not the whole recipe, but I'd be curious to know if there's cumin, coriander, or cayenne in there."
Morimoto: (taking the flour etc) I want the oysters shucked as quickly as possible.
*Morimoto mixes the flour, baking soda, and sugar. He adds water and brings the ingredient together then takes them to the stove and hands the dough to the sous chef stirring the pots.*
Morimoto: Knead this for at least 10 minutes.
*Morimotore moves the vanilla beans, slices them open, and returns the inside to both the pots. He then takes some nearby dried bread whisks it into the cream with the squid ink until it dissolves and the creme thickens then sets it to the side. The second pot of vanilla cream is tempered into the waiting eggs.*
*Jonny is mixing corn meal into a bowl containing flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar, a pinch of salt. On the side is a bottle of buttermilk, a carton of eggs, and a whisk. On the stove by him is a flat bottom copper kettle with a heap of bacon rendering down.*
Momma: Jimmy come bring that stuffing over here so I can fill up these birds.
*Jimmy starts to head over to Momma's workstation with a bowl of stuffing. As he passes by the bacon he stops and stares, smelling the wonderful aroma of the crisping bacon. Momma glances over her shoulder to see what is taking so long. With a disgusted glance, she hops down from her stool and heads for Jimmy. She reaches up and grabs his ear and pulls him to her station.*
Jimmy: Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow....
Momma: Oh stop your hollerin...and don't you dare drop that bowl! Now, you just stand over here and dirty-up. Just tie up these birds after I stuff em and they will be ready to go. And when you get that all done up just go roll them in that pan over there and let them rest up.
*Momma stuffs the bird, then gives them to jimmy to sew up the cavity and truss up the legs. Jimmy then places the finished birds on a pan containing bread crumbs, herbs, and ground walnuts so they can be rolled and then rested.*
Ohta: Fukui-san! Mamma James is soaking Cornish game hens in buttermilk. She also has a crouton stuffing for them. Mamma James also gave me some insight on the spice mix. There is cascabel, cayenne, chipotle, pico de pajaro, cumin and some type of beans. But the most important spice she is using here is "a heaping amount of love". Mamma James said "a heaping amount of love" is what every every good southern mother cooks with. But to spice things up she is using fresh anaheims, serranos, and some habaneros.
The Iron Chef is not making a bread pudding but seem to be making a filling with the squid ink and also with the same vanilla cream he is making a custard base. With the clams, he remains mum about. Back to you Fukui-san.
