NEW YORK, October 29, 2007 On Sunday, October 28, Aaron Sanchez (executive chef and owner, Centrico and Paladar, New York) was the fifth chef to be eliminated from the The Next Iron Chef Food Network’s new reality series that will award one chef the world’s most coveted culinary title: Iron Chef.
Hosted by Alton Brown (Good Eats, Iron Chef America), the sizzling primetime series airs Sundays at 9pm ET/PT.
Who will reign supreme?
Tune in this Sunday, November 4th, as the remaining three chefs continue the overseas portion of the competition, flying to Paris for the next challenge. They meet up with host Alton Brown who explains the Chairman’s next test: Lead & Inspire. The chefs must become the ultimate Americans in Paris as they are charged with each creating a meal for a party thrown by the U.S. Ambassador to France, Craig Stapleton. With guests that include foreign dignitaries, French celebrities and Parisian friends, the chefs must create dishes that explain America through their meals.
Complicating matters, the chefs must each lead a team of French sous chefs and overcome language barriers to produce these amazing meals. Afterwards, the judges eliminate one chef with only two remaining to see who will be the next Iron Chef.
The Next Iron Chef takes the contestants from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY to Europe – with the help of international airline Lufthansa – to compete in the food fight of their professional lives. Over the course of the show, the judges – Michael Ruhlman (James Beard Foundation Award-winning author, cookbook author and food writer), Andrew Knowlton (Restaurant Editor of Bon AppÃ©tit magazine) and Donatella Arpaia (restaurateur and owner of acclaimed New York City restaurants davidburke&donatella and Anthos) – ask the chefs to demonstrate a wide variety of skills to see who will become the last chef standing.
