Next Iron Chef Competition Turns Up the Heat

To be called an Iron Chef is to be a celebrated, world-class chef whose cuisine often reigns supreme - and it’s an honor many professional chefs would love to add to their credentials. Thanks to the magic of reality TV, one chef will soon claim the title as their own - but nine of the current contestants have got real reason to think they just aren’t up to par.

Ming Tsai, well-known as a television personality for his Emmy-winning East Meets West cooking show, is already a pro chef of the highest caliber … and he’s already taking The Next Iron Chef competition by storm. In the third-season opener, Tsai (who currently has a PBS cooking show named Simply Ming) took top honors in the Ingenuity challenge, where competitors were forced to cook with the one ingredient they said they would want to have if marooned on a deserted island.

The victory seemed to crystallize the fears the other competitors were having: it’s Tsai vs. everybody else. But is that how the third season of will play out? All ten competitors have serious cooking chops, many of them restaurant-owners and award-winners…and not one of them wants to lose.

The Next Iron Chef airs on Food Network on Sunday nights.
