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!

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!

Man Alive!: A reboot of Iron Chef is coming to Netflix! And welcome, icfanus5!
Jan 20, 2022 20:02:24 GMT -5
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.

ironnut77: ishinabelover111: the site ironcheffans.com has a listing, but still working to restore links to episodes
Aug 25, 2020 14:43:24 GMT -5
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
Aug 17, 2020 7:31:31 GMT -5
Man Alive!: After many years, the original forum background has been restored! I thought it was lost to time, but it's back!

ironnut77: Random SHOUT to keep some activity on the site! :-)

Hattori: "Heh. At least I scored one -- got the kare-pan right. Missed the crab dip, though -- I think that's what the cream cheese mixture is for, and I'll guess that she'll have croutons ready for dipping, like a fondue."
Fukui: Well, you can't get them all, Doc! Heck, you're doing better than I ever could have done.

Momma: Jimmy dear, come here.
*Jimmy obediently comes over to Momma*
Momma: Jimmy. I need to you to take these crabs out of the water for me and crack'em open to get the meet out. Remember Jimmy, crack them..NOT CRUSH THEM! *Momma pounds her hand on the counter for emphasis* Ok, dear?
*Jimmy stares at Momma for a bit*
Jimmy: Yeah, Momma. I got it.
*Jimmy removes the crabs from the water and takes them back to his station. *
Momma: Remember Jimmy, no CRUSHING! *Sigh* That sweet boy.
*Momma turns her attention to the pressure cooker and takes it off the heat. She then adds colored spiral pasta noodles to her kettle of boiling water. After, adding the noodles, she turns her attention back to the pressure cooker and takes the lid off.*
Momma: Ohhh....sweet doggies!
*Momma grabs some the the artisin bread and adds it to the chillie to thicken it up.*

Hattori: "It looks like Momma James is going to borrow a page from Iron Chef Kobe's playbook, using tricolor rotini pasta. Now I can't say for certain, but I think she'll probably use them as part of her bread salad. I wonder if Ohta-san can find out what the different colors are -- green rotini's usually made with either spinach or basil in the pasta dough, and orange rotini incorporates tomato or carrot."
Morimoto: The squid needs to come off and be put on plates then check on the Manju.
*Morimoto picks up and carries the bowl of Harasume noodles over to where the other sous chef is plating the boules. The boules have been hollowed and a triangle cut from the side of each. He takes a small handful and carefully separating it into 8 sections spreads it outward from the cut making it look like an octopus. Between the two of them they get all the plates set up then Morimoto ladels the octopus curry in the boule and lets it spill onto the noodles on the plate. He sprinkles some coconut over the top.*
Morimoto: Finish the rest and then get them under the boiler.

*Jonny is still stirring the cheese dip while Momma grabs a ButterFinger candy bar from under the counter. Upon hearing how much time is left, Jimmy quickly turns around towards Momma.*
Jimmy; Momma, is it time for my plan yet?
Momma: And what plan is that, Jimmy dear?
Jimmy: You know, Momma. THE plan. You know, the one where i grab one of those cutting boards, sneak up behind Morimoto, and smack him over the head with it. I can do it right before plaiting so he can't get any of dishes done. Then we can win by count out!. Isn't that a great idea, Momma?
*Both Momma and Jonny stop and stare at Jimmy in disbelief. Catching himself, Jonny starts stirring the cheese dip again. Momma slowly walks over to Jimmy and hits him upside his head.*
Momma: Jimmy Joshua James, you stop all that nonsense and get back to the crabs. I ain't gonna have you running around attacking poor defenseless chefs because you don't think your Momma's cooking is good enough....
*Jimmy begins to back up from his Momma*
Jimmy: I never meant it like that, Momma. I just thought that....
Momma: Now you stop all that thinking, Jimmy. Just get back there and finish that crab up before i"m done with this candy bar...or it's not the only thing that will be done today. You understand me, boy!?
*Jimmy bows his head slightly*
Jimmy: Yes, Momma....
Momma: Good, now you get back there and finish up.
*Momma returns to her station and grabs a wooden rolling pin and places the ButterFinger, still in the wrapper, on her cutting board. She then begins to hit the candy bar with the rolling pin.*
Momma: Why *wham* I *wham* ought *wham* to *wham* take *wham* that *wham* boy *wham*back *wham*out *wham*to *wham*the *wham*woodshed....
Ohta: Fukui-san! To Hattori-san's question the challenger told be it is tri-color so it is orange, green and white. The pasta is going into a salad. When asked about how she was on time, Mamma James said that she thought she was on track to finish all her dishes. I also asked the Iron Chef the same question, he said that he is also on track to finish all his dishes and they are great. Back to you Fukui-san.
Kaifu: Would that be a pasta salad then? Wow I'm looking forward to the Iron Chef's curry. But I wonder what the powdered candy bar is for?
Kaifu: I must say, that is an interesting topping. For a moment, I thought we were going to have a food fight among the two sides literally. We might need to bring in the chairman to keep the peace among the challenger's group right Fukui-san?
*Morimoto is helping to get the manju out of the steamer. He caries them over to some plates and places three on a plate then ladles the adzuke sauce in a small saucer in the center. *
Morimoto: One of each kind with the sweet broth in the cup, don't forget a small spoon for each.
*Morimoto moves to the stove and removes the quenelles from their broth.*
Morimoto: Strain the broth clear then ladle it on top of the dumplings and add a sprinkle of the chopped scallions.
Sous chef: What scallions?
Morimoto: The ones you are about to slice up.
*Morimoto places two of the quenelles dumplings in each bowl and then moves to check on the stuffed squid which have been placed on small square plates. He carefully drizzles the chestnut, miso, and chocolate sauce over the top of each one.*

Hattori: "And Morimoto's started on his plating, which is very good timing considering how intricate his dishes usually are."
Hirano: "Yes, I know this is Momma James' first time here, but I would be interested in seeing what kind of plating she and her sons will set up. I would like to see some good visuals in their presentation -- homestyle cooking usually doesn't lend itself to that."

*Jonny take the crab meat that Jimmy has gotten from the crab and mixes is into the cheese dip he has made. Once mixed, he pours the cheese dip onto the boules. Back at the frying kettle, Momma and Jimmy are removing the final Cornish Hens and letting them drain.*
Momma: Jonny, come get this pasta and start on the salad. Jimmy start dishing up that chillie on those buns you grilled up. I'm gonna take care of them birds.
*Momma takes one of the hens in the warming oven and places it on her cutting board. She takes a cleaver and cuts the hen in half, then picks up both halves and puts them on the plate and arranges the the stuffing around them.*
