Some TV Chefs Not So Hot On ‘Iron Chef’ Format

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The format used on shows like Iron Chef and its stateside counterpart Iron Chef America makes for great television but it doesn’t always make for great meals.

That’s the distasteful news from TV chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger a.k.a. the “Border Girls,” who will be competing against fellow Food Network chef Bobby Flay on Iron Chef America.

The Border Girls admit that the competitive nature of the show can be fun but Milliken admits is “a little bit demeaning,” especially because the Girls prefer “slow- cooked” methods of preparation.

Unfortunately, the chosen ingredient for the girls’ episode was turkey, which, of course, is best when cooked for a few hours, not the sixty minutes allotted for the show.

Despite that, Feniger and Milliken rose to the challenge and even managed to use turkey for a dessert.

However, they say the best part of the competition was the opportunity to tease Flay.

The newest season of Iron Chef America debuts Sunday (Nov. 13).
