Will The Real Iron Chef Please Come Back?

Oh wait…it has! YAY!

That’s right, as of yesterday, Iron Chef Japan returned to TV on the Fine Living Network!

For the past year or so, Food Network has produced a lackluster replacement called Iron Chef America but the true fans of Iron Chef quickly realized how little it compared. Something about those translations (right down to the very laugh!) and the real chairman of Kitchen Stadium make the show that much better. It’s those details that I miss. It just felt so much more authentic.

But I don’t have to miss them anymore!

Now I can enjoy the likes of Chen Kenichi, Hiroyuki Sakai, and of course, my absolute favorite (maybe because I met him and got his autograph): Masaharu Morimoto!

And if all this doesn’t get you pumped, check out the reason you should be:

    What is the fine living network? and why doesn’t it just come back to the regular food network?! Those were the days….

    Holy cripes. This is the best news I’ve heard all week.

    I still think the US version could have been salvaged if Shatner stayed on as the chairman.

    That is sooo cool. The Japanese version is far superior. I love Kenichi, he is so cute! God knows when this will air in Oz :(

    Fingers crossed it’s soon! Thanks for the news!
