ICA: Zakarian vs. Frauneder

zacbanner ICA: Zakarian vs. GallanteIron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian faces off against challenger Eduard Frauneder, executive chef at Edi & The Wolf in New York. Judges are Jeffrey Steingarten, Cady Huffman, and John Curtas.

Eduard FraunederOne of the youngest Michelin-starred chefs from Austria, chef Eduard Frauneder began his culinary career at a young age. In his preteens, he worked alongside his father in the multiple bakeries and pastry shops the family owned in Vienna.

Fast forward years later, Frauneder’s passion for food hasn’t waned and he’s managed to bring his home flavors to Alphabet City of all places.

Along with business partner Wolfgang Ban, they opened their second NYC restaurant Edi & the Wolf. The result is a rustic yet sophisticated Austrian bistro. We chatted with the chef about Austrian flavors, grapes and Oktoberfest.  To learn more about Chef Eduard Frauneder there is a great interview with him HERE from metro.us.

Waiting for Chef Frauneder is the newest Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian.  Expect fireworks.  Expect drama.  Most of all expect amazing food.  Bring on Battle Yak.
