TV Alert: Iron Chef America

The day we have all been waiting for has arrived! Okay, fine, the day I have been waiting for has arrived: Rachael Ray will be appearing on Iron Chef America! Rachael will be teamed up with Mario Batali and Giada De Laurentiis is teamed up with Bobby Flay. Early reports said the secret ingredient will be cranberries.

With the holiday tomorrow and my fear that you won't be at work using Everything Rachael Ray to waste time, this TV alert is a bit early. The show airs on Sunday, November 12 at 9 p.m., but make sure to check your local listings.

When asked about how it was to film the episode for Iron Chef America, Rachael told the Poughkeepsie Journal :

"It was horrible," said Ray, a first-time competitor, after the match as she bustled around the kitchen clearing plates. "Done for life. Done for life. Done for life. I like the shelter and safety of my own tiny, itty, bitty world."

Thank God (again) for TiVo because I won't be able to watch it live. If you can't watch it live either, don't worry because they are going to replay it a bunch. Here are the airtimes.

Who do you think will win?


  1. eek -- well judging purely on what she said about the experience, I am leaning towards Giada and Flay winning. :)

  2. Yes... I am also thinking Rachel went down. Who knows, though? I wasn't rooting for either team, just still very interested to see the outcome!

  3. You are right Cakegrrl - either way it will be a great show to watch.

  4. I heart cranberries! I am so watching this (was planning to anyway though, lol).

    I love Ray, Giada, and Batali. But Flay is a punk, and from what other chefs who worked with him tell me, deserves a firm beating. In Iron Chef, and with a skillet.

  5. Garrett - you mean the fact that Rachael is teamed up with Mario isn't a good enough reason to root for them?

  6. I agree with Garrett, Bobby Flay is a punk. I can't stand him!! He has the words "pompous ass" tattooed to his forehead, I swear.

    LOL! I am rooting for Ray-Ray, but I see Giada winning it. Rachael has always said she is not a gourmet chef (or something along those lines), but I can't wait to see the show.

    And if you visit the Iron Chef thread on TWoP, there is a bit of a spoiler (not on who wins) regarding Rachael on there.

  7. It's definitely possible that what we like about Rachael is what will make her lose (if she does lose).

  8. However, she does have an edge- Mario you never know!!!

    I can't wait!
