ICA: Symon vs. Morimoto – Tailgate Showdown
Iron Chefs Morimoto and Symon travel to Hawaii for the first ever Iron Chef America tailgating showdown. Because of the two-hour season (please make it the series) finale of RvG: Celebrity Showdown this special ICA will air on Saturday night.
Like the Super Bowl, this will also serve as a rematch of the 2005 Battle: Asparagus between Morimoto and a not-yet Iron Chef Micheal Symon as well as the 2011 Christmas special Battle: Alton Brown’s Fruit Cake. Both of the first two battles were won by Morimoto which is impressive considering Symon has only lost six of his 30 battles in Kitchen Stadium.
Iron Chef Symon hails from Cleveland, OH and is one big time Browns fan. For those not in the know the Browns are like the Cubs of the NFL. They were a power franchise. . . sixty years ago. However, they’ve never even sniffed a Super Bowl save for one AFC championship game that they ultimately lost thanks one of the 47 last minute comebacks that put Denver QB John Elway into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Iron Chef Morimoto is from Japan. This should be fun. The judges for Battle: Wild Boar were Simon Majumdar, Sunny Anderson and Brandie Cazimero. Be sure to hop over to Sunny’s blog for a behind the scenes look of tonight’s episode.
