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!

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!

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!

Idea for a traditional holiday game. Lets pretend we can go to each other's house as a group and the house we're at has one type of special food item, i.e., or'dourves, desserts, entres, etc. (please scuse my spelling). The host/hostess at each house describes the dish they have made and we sample it. Then the host/hostess of the house we just visited goes with us on to the next house where we sample what that person has made. We do this until everyone who is participating has presented their dish. We must decide in advance who wants what. OK?
"WHOSE CUISINE WILL REIGN SUPREME?" IC SAKAI'S. Just call me "Sakai's Ichiban Fan!"
Oh, and while I don't know how many will join in I thought it wouldn't hurt to look up the series in a 10 course meal.
1st Course – Appetizers
2nd Course – Soup
3rd Course – Salad
4th Course – Pâté with pickles & fingers of toast
5th Course - Seafood
6th Course – Meat
7th Course - Dessert
8th Course - Assortment of Cheeses with pickles, onions and slices of cured spicy sausage.
9th Course – Fruit or Berries in sauce
10th Course - Sorbet
For the average person today the above menu would appear to be just too much food to consume at one sitting; however, in Victorian times a formal dinner was a full evening's entertainment. You would arrive shortly after 6pm and enjoy a glass of sherry with your host before being called to dinner at 7pm - and you would stay at the table until 10pm - with each course being separated from the next by polite conversation or story telling and bringing each other up to date on current affairs.
At 10pm the gentlemen would retire to the library for cognac and cigars and the ladies would withdraw to the drawing room; however I have never been able to find out exactly what they did there.
PS. Wouldn't this count as a roleplay?
