Could We Recommend A Guest Judge For Season 4?
From Scripps Howard News Service - Parent company to the Food Network, the following article had an interesting quote from Alton Brown.
Make no mistake, said Brown, "The Next Iron Chef" isn't a run-of-the-mill reality, cooking show. This has been a food fight with flair between hardened experts -- so don't expect another version of Bravo's "Top Chef."
"Those people are one step up from Denny's," said a fiery Brown. "My mom could do that. There's nothing cheesy or cheap about (Iron Chef)."
Click HERE to read "Food fight for the next Iron Chef".
We suggest Alton come and be one of the guest judges for season 4.
