Reading around the traps it appears that Iron Chef French Hiroyuki Sakai will make an appearance on this weeks episode of the new series of Japanese Iron Chef. Sakai will introduce a “nominee” – challenger to the Iron Chef. Hopefully, as with Michiba’s appearance in episodes 2 & 3 he will be on the commentary panel and get to taste and judge.
The culinary critic, Asako Kishi, from the original series will also be back this week on the judging and tasting panel. Kishi always had quirky things to say in the original series but until this is overdubbed or subtitled it wont help those of us without Japanese language skills. She can be as quirky as she likes in Japanese but it will be all Greek to me!
Watch out on the Iron Chef Fans site on late Friday night or Saturday morning for the new episode.
