On this week’s “Cupcake Wars” (Cirque De Soleil) on the Food Network, one of the bakers lost Round 2 for failing to have enough cupcakes for the judges. They need 3 cupcakes for 3 judges, but fell one cupcake short. In an episode of “Chopped,” (I’m sorry I can’t remember when it was originally broadcasted as it was a rerun), a chef included raw onion in a dish, to which two of the judges stated they disliked. Round 2 happens and the chef does it again, hoping to hide them this time. The chef is admonish for it.
So, on “Iron Chef,” has a chef ever failed to complete a dish or make enough of a dish for the three judges? Has an Iron Chef ever made a dish that a judge would not eat for any reason? Maybe the judge had an allergy or doesn’t like offal, etc.
