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.

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

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

Man Alive!: After many years, the original forum background has been restored! I thought it was lost to time, but it's back!

Iron Chef Mandy: What? ICJ is/was back on Cooking Channel? Who refused to let me know? DO I HAVE IT?

The main dish in the Iron Chefs selection is the Gourmet Kare Pan. A rich octopus curry is served on bread bowls and harusame noodles shaped to look like the seafood it contains. This octopus curry is finished with a light sprinkling of coconut and was lightly caramelized under the broiler to provide a variety of textures and light sweetness to an otherwise savory dish.
Thank you. For this next dish I wanted to make a gourmet Kare Pan. Since harusame noodles are often found in the buns I decided to use some, combined with the boule, to give the dish the appearance of an octopus. To eat swirl the noodles into the octopus curry and use the bread to sop up the curry sauce.
Kaifu: Interesting dish. The noodles absorb the octopus curry nicely. This dish's aroma aroused my sense when it was first place before me. But on that note, bread doesn't seem like the star in this dish. The curry seems to be the like the Prime Minister while the bread seems to be just a member of Parliament.

Hirano: "I must agree with Kaifu-san, but only to a point. In terms of flavor and texture the bread is a supporting role, but as a device for visual presentation, the bread is vital, acting as the 'head' of the octopus while the harusame acts as tentacles. This is a good example of the artistic instinct that we've come to expect from the Iron Chef."
Kaifu: Again this is a good dish. The consume is very well done. The sardine quenelles are a bit strong for this dish. The miso helps rein in some of the strength of the fish while adding a nice saltiness to this dish. The bread also help hide the fish a bit but is hidden to much in this dish in my point of view.
Last is a Fried Cream Pan and Squid Ink Ice Cream. The vanilla cream was piped into hollowed rolls that were then rolled in sugar and deep fried for a sweet crispy exterior. The ice cream was thickened with bread instead of eggs and seasoned lightly with both vanilla bean and squid ink so as to complement the flavor of the bread thickener. Topped with a sprinkling of streusel this desert combines two separate popular Japanese delicacies.
Morimoto: I hope this desert will speak for itself. Please enjoy.
Kaifu: I like this dessert. I think the fried item could have been served alone. The icecream thickened by bread is unusual. But I'm not sure if its the texture of the icecream or the squid ink but its just a bit unusual. The fried bread was wonderful with its crispy coating.
Fukui: Judgment has been passed, and all that remains to be served is the verdict- when we return.
Post ---------------------------------------------- Great job, everyone! Judges, please PM me your scorecards ASAP. Remember, for each chef there are 10 points available for "taste", and 5 points each for "originality" and "plating." See our new judgment guides if you need some help. ----------------------------------------------- End
*Kaga enters Kitchen Stadium, followed by the judges*
Kaga: Today, Iron Chef Morimoto was challenged by Momma James, the mother of wrestler Jimmy James. By doing battle in Kitchen Stadium, Momma James has proven to all of us that sometimes, a mother's homemade cooking can be just as good as a professional meal. And now, the verdict.
Fukui: Momma James came into Kitchen Stadium tonight and took on Iron Chef Morimoto in the bread battle! Competition was fierce, and Jimmy James even helped his mother prepare her dishes. Tasting is over, and the verdict is ready- who takes it? Whose cuisine reigns supreme?
Kaga: Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto!
Fukui: He did it! The Iron Chef triumphed over Momma James in battle tonight! It looks like, at least in the judges' eyes, the dishes of the Iron Chef were indeed superior to Momma James' home cooking. Let's take a look at the scores.
Challenger: 14 Iron Chef: 16
Challenger: 17 Iron Chef: 19
Challenger: 14 Iron Chef: 16
Challenger: 18 Iron Chef: 17
TOTAL Challenger: 63 Iron Chef: 68
Fukui: Taking the victory by a mere five points, Iron Chef Japanese Masaharu Morimoto takes the win tonight!
