Iron Chef… It’s All Fake

February 20, 2008

Surprised? Neither am I. Mostly, I really couldn’t believe that 2 different chefs could come up with 5 different plates in under an hour without ever hashing it out with their sous-chefs. Seriously, the show makes it seem like the components of the dish come out of thin air and the sous-chefs are master mind-readers. But now we have proof. Check out this article in the Village Voice all about the sham that is Iron Chef. As the writer says:

“Iron Chef America is more bogus than even I had imagined.”

I still think I love the show, but I have to say, reading the cold, hard truth takes some of the magic out of the spectacle 😦

  2. oh yeah, totally. i’ve heard lots of people in the food industry say that the judging is a totally sham, too. like the producers will make them vote for a certain person.

    oh well…..such is television…..

    although if i heard the same about project runway i would cry! 🙂
