The White House Garden Battle
In a network first, the Food Network will face off using ingredients from the First Lady, Michelle Obama’s organic White House garden. The culinary battle will feature Chef’s Bobby Flay, Mario Batali, Emeril Lagasse with one of them being paired off with White House chef Cristeta Comerford. It was announced on November 4th that the episode of Iron Chef America will air on January 3rd.
The show’s one consistently regular judge will be replaced (thank God) and the three judges will be actress Jane Seymour, chef Nigella Lawson, and Olympic gold medalist Natalie Coughlin. After selecting their ingredients the competition will move from our nation’s capitol to Kitchen Stadium in Food Network’s New York studios. May the best chefs prevail.
