ICA: Symon vs. Adjey

According to Wikipedia David Adjey is, “a world renowned chef, consulting with many restaurants in Toronto and throughout North America. He is known for his appearances on the Food Network Canada show Restaurant Makeover, which is seen in over 16 countries worldwide and ran for seven seasons starting in 2005.”

Adjey helped kick off the 7th. season of Iron Chef America by taking on Michel Symon in Battle: Sturgeon.  The challenger made Carpaccio of Sturgeon, Sutrgeon chowder with Sturgeon lobster finger, Cedar-roasted Sturgeon, Bacon wrapped Sturgeon with collard greens and Smoked Sturgeon with Celery Root Hash.  Iron Chef Symon countered with Smoked Sturgeon Belly with Caviar, radish & lemon zest pancakes, Sutrgeon Puttanesca, Butter poached sturgeon with curried applesauce, Sturgeon with Lamb sausage and bean broth and Grilled Sturgeon with ragu.

The judges were Andrew Knowlton (Bon Appetit), John Curtas (Eating Las Vegas) and Steve Olsen (aka Wine Geek).  And the winner was (don’t scroll down if you don’t want to know) . . .

. . . a draw.
