ICA: Morimoto vs Hines

Iron Chef America on WannabeTVchef

Finally!  It has been 6 years, 213 days, 9 hours and 37 minutes since the last Iron Chef: America.  At least if feels like it anyway.  With Top Chef and Hell’s Kitchen wrapping up their seasons, NFNS hitting it’s stride and the MasterChef premiere it is nice to get back to the TV cooking competition that started it all (sort of) and remains the best.

Maria Hines on WannabeTVchef.comFrom the Emerald City comes Maria Hines and her New American cuisine.  Hines insists that the food at her restaurant, Tilth, be prepared with certified-organic or wild ingredients that are locally sourced.  The approach has won the chef/owner a James Beard Award winner for Best Chef of the Northwest in 2009 and saw her named one of Food & Wine Magazine’s 10 Best New Chefs of 2005.  Chef Maria is founding member of Seattle Restaurant Week.

The challenger is a native of Bowling Green, Ohio.  After studying at Mesa College her career has seen her working in kitchens in New York, France, California, Washington D.C. and of course Seattle, first at Earth & Ocean and now with Tilth.  The Top Chef: Masters alum now faces off against the dean of Iron Chefs, the incomparable Morimoto.

The theme ingredient is Pacific cod.  You never want to face Morimoto in a fish challenge.  The judges were John T. Edge, Julie White and Sam Haskell.
