Unappetising and flawed.
2 January 2005 | by (Heraganahalli, India) – See all my reviews

I watched a segment of the "Iron Chef" where Bobbie Flay, Iron Chef stands on a Cutting board with his shoes.What kind of crap is this from a Chef let alone an Iron Chef? I have never seen anything remotely disgusting than this. He should have been instantly disqualified for ever from the Show and TV-but no we have to see his mediocrity but see him win the contest-thanks for the unbiassed sponsors and the Judges! This Flay guy comes up with an excuse that it was his way of showing elation-pure crap.Then there is the segment with Flay vs Sakai-the same veritable Mr.Flay picks up a trout from the floor and lo and behold puts right into the cooking pot-obviously Flay believes in little flavor from the floor. Among the three judges only one is a Chef who looks more like a Rockstar than a Chef but fits right in with the caliber of Chefs like Flay. One is a female who seems obviously hooked on to Flay's looks than his culinary skills no wonder the verdict is for Flay. Flay needs a course on hygiene before he ventures into his kitchen or any kitchen. There should be three judges watching and three who do not watch but taste the final product. There should be one Judge each from the Chef's Country and four other from a different Country. There should be Studio audience, there should be two commentators. The show is a typical Reality TV with no Artistry (the only one American Chef who rightfully belongs there is, Puck.) The show is about-who can make a mess of a secret ingredient within the shortest time. This show sucks full time and Flay's contribution is significant.
