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

Is it a larger advantage to have sous chefs who know the kitchen like in ICJ?
Is it better to bring your own such as in ICA?
I can see how (with the exception of language difficulties) it would be to the chefs advantage to have sous chefs that know the kitchen since many of them comment that one of the difficulties is working in a strange kitchen.

I think it's better to bring your own, like in ICA. However, having all the sous chefs as part of the Gourmet Academy made the whole "Kitchen Stadium" story more believeable in ICJ. Each way works better with its respective show.
I'm just not sure which is better. On the one hand you can practice with you're own sous chefs. I just keep wondering about the comments of not knowing the kitchen. I know when I'm not familiar with a kitchen it always seems to take me 2-3 times longer to get anything done.
I wonder if they let the chefs familiarize themselves ahead of time?
Remember the comment IC Sakai made on the last IC show about the side of the kitchen he was on, it was totally opposite of what he was used to and it was hard for him to work there. I think allowing the challenger chefs to bring their own sous chefs with them helps when it comes to knowing what the challenger wants his/her assistants to do but, using assistants that work strictly for IC's kitchen stadium has the advantage of them knowing where things are, etc. I'd say it's a flip of the coin or, personal preference.
"WHOSE CUISINE WILL REIGN SUPREME?" IC SAKAI'S. Just call me "Sakai's Ichiban Fan!"
