The Next Iron Chef: Super Chefs Premieres This Sunday

Don't forget to tune in and see me on the unparalleled Food Network Next Iron Chef society that premieres this Sunday, October 30th at 9pm ET/PT, where ten of the world's most celebrated chefs go to battle to become a member of the elite Iron Chef culinary. The much anticipated The Next Iron Chef: Super Chefs, will be a new eight-episode season hosted by Alton Brown and featuring myself and fellow chefs Anne Burrell, Michael Chiarello, Elizabeth Falkner, Alex Guarnaschelli, Chuck Hughes, Robert Irvine, Beau MacMillan, Spike Mendelsohn, and Geoffrey Zakarian.

What's even more exciting about this season of The Next Iron Chef is that challenges are heightened with each episode featuring a grueling Chairman's Challenge and an intense, new element that will determine who goes home: the Secret Ingredient Showdown, which pits the two chefs at the bottom of the pack against each other in a sudden-death cook-off with only one ingredient. The winner will join the ranks of chefs including Bobby Flay, Marc Forgione, Masaharu Morimoto and Michael Symon as a member of the Chairman's team on Iron Chef America.  The newly crowned Iron Chef's first battle in Kitchen Stadium will premiere on Sunday, December 25th at 9pm ET/PT. But until then you can watch us grueling it out to see who wins.

Fans will also be able to vote for their fan favorites and enter a 'Watch and Win' sweepstakes. So if you're watching, I encourage everyone to put in a good word for me! For more info, visit: and tune in this Sunday as I battle it out to become the next Iron Chef America!
