SUPER IRON CHEF AMERICA - Comerford and Flay

When I was asked to participate in the Iron Chef, I knew it would be hard work, but a lot of fun. Now I have the pleasure of congratulating White House Chef Cristeta Comerford and Bobby Flay for taking the Super Iron Chef America title. Cris and Bobby battled Emeril Lagasse and Mario Batali. Every Iron Chef episode is infused with a secret ingredient. For this show, First Lady Michelle Obama opened up the White House garden for the chefs to harvest.

The winning dishes for Comerford and Flay included a fennel and apple sald with oysters, fried lobster and squid with a garden salad, broccoli clam chowder, barbeque pork, slaw, collard green tamale, cauliflower gratin, watermelon radish pickles and a sweet potato tart with pecan brittle, honey, and cranberries.
