Plot Synopsis

Outstanding American chefs compete for a chance to be a member of the Chairman's team on IRON CHEF AMERICA with original American Iron Chefs Bobby Flay, Cat Cora and Masaharu Morimoto. Competitors travel from Los Angeles to Japan to New York, where they are challenged to create dishes that represent a variety of world cultures and cuisines. Whether working with exotic ingredients like jelly fish, creating their own version of international "fast food" or experiencing umami with sponsor Kikkoman, the chefs must demonstrate their speed, artistry, innovation and leadership in each dish.
