          Yes! I asked the Iron Chef what he was doing with the sardines in the ice cream machine and he told me to get lost and insinuated that my mother is a prostitute. Back to you...

              I'd guess Kobe, too. He was fiesty, fitting for an Italian chef. Full of passion!

              Chen made sardine ice cream once. No insults though.

              ?si=mQVHcdWfRKS79a2G

              Yeah Chen put Sardines in the ice cream machine several times to make a mousse because it was always a hit and a head scratcher. He'd never tell Ohta to frick off though, he was a total gentleman.

                I enjoy watching episodes where they have guest judges like Joel Robuchon, like they did in the France special. You can tell the judges understand what they're judging better.

    I know Morimoto was the goat but my favorite iron chef was always Chen Kenichi. Too bad the Italian chef died (by apparently slipping on the floor of his kitchen)

    • 4 weeks ago

      Morimoto is definitely not the GOAT.
      He didn't even make it past the first round of the Iron Chef showdown, and he doesn't have that great of a win record.
      The best Iron Chef is Hiroyuki Sakai, hands down, the chef who won the Battle of the Iron Chefs. Not only is he trained in the most renowned cuisine in the world, French, he's also a skilled Japanese chef. Hiroyuki Sakai could literally be both French and Japanese Iron Chef, but that wouldn't be fair so they just call him French.

            But Sakai won the Battle of the Iron Chefs. Those judges actually ate the dishes, you can't say that was visuals alone.
            I think ultimately the two cuisines are equal and fill different niches.

              He made some inventive dishes at times, but it did seem like he would just fall back on chili prawns or szechuan stir fry a lot.
              Anyone ever been to La Rochelle? Even if it's still open, I highly doubt Sakai is doing much cooking.

                I agree, he's 82 now. Michiba is still around too, he's 11 years older at 93. Ishinabe is also still alive at 76 and Nakamura is also alive at 76.

                Chen Kenichi died last year at 67

        Wasn't Michiba-sama retired at this point though? Michiba had an 87% win rate in his battles (admittedly not as many as Chen or Sakai) and he absolutely wiped the floor with his opponents. Dude would take the time to write a menu and looked more like he was whipping up a quick lunch than the frantic action you see from most challengers. It's a dead heat between Chen and Sakai, but they're both second to Michiba.

        • 4 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          This is true, Michiba might be the best overall Iron Chef.
          I think it mostly just comes down to experience. I was watching an episode with carrots as the theme ingredient and when Ohta asked him about it, he said "oh we used carrots a lot during the war."
          It's hard to beat a guy who has been cooking for that long.

        if we're going by win record then excluding the first French iron chef who quit after his first loss and only had 8 battles, 1/3 of even Masahiko Kobe, it'd be
        Sakai>Michiba>Chen>Kobe>Morimoto>Nakamura
        well Michiba has a slightly higher win % than Sakai but also only competed in half the number of battles. you could potentially switch Michiba and Chen on the same basis but the gap between them is larger before taking that into account
