    Are you watching???
    I RECOMMEND this show! First episode's secret ingredient was buffalo, 2nd was catfish. This is WAY better that the original Japanese version, as it uses American cooking styles and ingredients!
    It's on Food Network 8pm CDT on Sundays.

    So far I agree the show is good.
    But I like the original better because, the challenger called out the Iron Chef. And this show (so far) is (IMO) slanted way too much in favor of the Iron Chefs. Course I am not a Flay or Batali fan. I like Morimoto, and would like to see Emeril A in there as well.

    With the first episode and Bobby Flay...That way just waaay to close and the chef from OK/ Mexico only lost by one or two points with presentation, right? So on that one a bias could be possible..
    The chef VS Mario Battali in this week's episode did truly seem a bit out of his element..I mean ..a DESSERT catfish? He got the points for originality, though and well deserving..
    And WHY does the crabby old judge from Vogue get to come back AGAIN???? I mean, it's a friggin' FASHION magazine! I sure hope he's not on the panel tomorrow night.

    This is one thing I don't like. I prefer that the challenger actually challenge the Iron Chef. More of a contest I think. What is Battle of the Masters?

    Jan 16 Bobby Flay vs. Rick Bayless
    Jan 23 Mario Batali vs. Roberto Trevino
    Jan 30 Bobby Flay vs. Ming Tsai
    Feb 6 Battle of the Masters
    Feb 13 Mario Batali vs. Michael Laiskonis
    Feb 20 Masaharu Morimoto vs. Rob Feenie
    Feb 27 Bobby Flay vs. Govind Armstrong
    Mar 6 Masaharu Morimoto vs. Roberto Donna
    Mar 20 Mario Batali vs. Scott Campbell
    Mar 27 Battle of the Masters

    Who won in the Battle between Flay and Bayless. In my opinion Bayless is a much better chef. And forget Batali I loss my appetite every time I see that fat red head of his sweat in buckets.

    Flay and Bayless were very close although Flay won, but if I remember correctly, just a point or two.
    Uggh! Now I'm going to look at Batalli in an entirely different light!
    Thanks for sharing! Gaaaag!
