Loving: Iron Chef Japan

Iron Chef Japan

Iron Chef Japan

Pioneering cooking show meets Mystery Science 3000 meets Godzilla vs. Mothra — all tucked inside the infamous confines of Chairman Kaga’s Kitchen Stadium.

If you haven’t watched the original Iron Chef in a while, it’s just kind of great — like finding a lonely $5 on the sidewalk or realizing that your neighbor folded the laundry you left in the dryer.

To get you in the mood, enjoy a tangy amuse bouche of Iron Chef trivia — allez cuisine!
