Allez Cuisine - Vegetarian vs. Vegetarian

Well, someone must have heard me complain about not having any vegetarian shows on Food Network because I just found out that there will be an entire episode dedicated to vegetarian cooking on Iron Chef America.

Amanda Cohen, chef and owner of vegetarian restaurant Dirt Candy in New York City, will battle it out with Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto on Sunday, August 29th at 10pm ET/PT.

Okay, it’s not a series like I wanted, but for Iron Chef, where they use more meat, fish and other strange creatures, this is a huge step. The secret ingredient is well, still a secret, but it’s said that both chefs do stick to a vegetarian menu – and that was probably hard for Morimoto who likes using fresh fish in most of his battles.

I’m excited for the episode, but I won’t be excited if the secret ingredient is eggplant. Blah!
