Iron Chef Gone – Can Someone Tell Channel 7

Everyone appears to be killing Iron Chef Australia today except Channel 7. The Daily Telegraph reports the show which was a spin off of the cult Japanese show will not be renewed for a second season.

But can someone tell Channel 7 that as they are still saying “no decision has yet been made” on the future of the show.

I thought the show had potential but with good iron chefs, and a great judging panel. However I did find Grant Denyer and the American Chairman superfluous.

If Seven do flick this, maybe they could think of doing an Australian version of Top Chef. Where professional chefs battle it out for the title of Top Chef.

Curtis Stone is currently the host of Top Chef Masters in the US.

Good riddance. It was easily the least watchable of the ‘reality’ cooking comps with a cheesy format more comparable to ‘It’s A Knockout’ than the superb Jap original.

I would hardly have classified those judges as iron chef.
As boner said the jap original was fantastic and iron chefs could actually cook and the commentary was always entertaining. Only trouble with it was that we all knew Old Mole Kichi was always gonna score it for the iron chef.
