THE NEXT IRON CHEF FINALIE: "Honor" aka "Canora v. Forgione" (Season 3, Episode 8) [Spoilers]

The Next Iron Chef is ... CHEF FORGIONE.

[Big collective yawn]

This was a really boring episode in my opinion.

"Honoring" Thanksgiving feast? Were the creative dept. at Food Network off this week?

Canora needs to either buy a stopwatch, or figure out where the clock is at Kitchen Stadium.

Forgione, too salty.

Canora, too sweet.

Forgione, no turkey

Forgione ... 5 best dishes.

Canora ... most consistent

Have at it.

  1. Meh. Anti-climatic ending. It was obvious that Forgione was going to win the contest. He seemed to win this fair and square at least (unlike some other judgments). Still though, I was disappointed with the "secret ingredient" being thanksgiving. Kinda takes away from the "tradition" of Iron Chef. Whatever. Still a fun season to watch, if not 100% legitimate.

      nailed it.

      1. zzzzzz.

        yes, i'm happy Forgione won, but man, was that a snooze-fest!

        1. Yeah, could've missed most of it. See Canora was true to form by insisting you HAVE to have turkey and make a traditional dinner w/ cranberry sauce, etc. Why does he think he gets to set the rules based on what's in his head? Thought it was also funny that he said, in the voice over in the end, that he was sure he'd won. Overall, I don't think Corgione's health could have taken his being an IC--he was just too riled through the whole show and I was half expecting a heart attack at any point.

              Ooh, wonder what kind of Freudian slip that was. I meant Canora.

                  I'm trying to visualize a "Corgione" chef ... would he have the eyes of Canora and the mohawk of Forgione?

          1. The outcome seemed inevitable, didn't it?

              The outcome was inevitable once Casewell and Tsai were eliminated.

                True, but he still needs a haircut!
