Storyline

Chefs from all over the world come to Kitchen Stadium to do culinary battle with one of Chairman Kaga's "Iron Chefs." Both the challenger and the Iron Chef have one hour to prepare a meal in which each course must prominently include the featured ingredient for that day's show. After the meals are prepared, a panel of judges samples both meals and determines who has made the better meal. Throughout the cook-off, running commentary is made by two "sports-casters" in a booth and one floor reporter. Written by Jason A. Cormier

Battle Royale, Cooking Style
4 April 2004 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

I have begun to watch this show on the Food Network and it is quite enjoyable. It not only is quite interesting to watch some of Japan's best chefs compete against each other in creating various dishes almost spontaneously, but listening to the English dubbed commentary can be quite humorous as well as they try to convey how the panelists enjoy or dislike each dish that they eat from each competition. Also, even though I'm not much of a gourmet, I do find most of the dishes appetizing, even though I probably won't eat them due to the fact that many of them are quite expensive.

Also, I just found out that the Food Network is going to do an American version of the show featuring many of the chefs that are featured on the various programs on the network. They will have to really come up with something spectacular if they hope to match the special charm of this show.
