Iron Chef USA

Iron Chef USA was a joke. I don't care who disagrees with me, it was. The Americans shouldn't have won everytime. I don't know if it was rigged or the judges just weren't very sophicasted and were thrown off by the Japanese style of cuisine. Either way, I was unhappy with the results. Not just the ones that involved Bobby Flay (although calling him "Iron Chef Flay" had a funny kind of irony).

The only good part of Iron Chef USA was Alton Brown. He was no Hatori-san. He wasn't on top of things like they are in Iron Chef (although being dubbed makes you sound a lot smarter sometimes). He was, however, funny and insightful. He was prejudiced to the Japanese style of cooking (as evident a few times, most noticably on the trout ice cream) so I can see where the judges would be too. I love good ole AB so I can take that with a grain of salt (kosher of course).

Now, to my favorite subject. The man who can't even peel a tomatillo without injurying himself. The man who raises the roof (before burning it down). That's right friends, Bobby the Boob Flay. He was alright during the Sakai battle. I don't think his corn dishes were equal to Sakai's more creative ones but Sakai only lost by 3 points (3 points, even if his tasted better, that Sakai should have made on presentation and creativity). However, for those of you who say Flay is a great Chef, let's cut to the highlights of the "tag-team" battle.

The clincher was the face he made when Morimoto hugged him at the end of the battle. Did you see how Sakai and Batali were getting aroung? Morimoto seemed nice to me. He seemed like he was trying to be friendly. Bobby just sneered and to me, that was more disrespectful than jumping on the cutting board. Be nice for once you weenus. Give the man a hug back and enjoy the battle (which is hard since you're losing blood left and right). With that performance I don't see how anyone can claim he's a better chef than anyone of them. He has proved once and for all that he has no skills in the kitchen.

Hmm, I'm sure there's stuff I'm leaving out but I just wanted to get all of that out before I forget.
