Next Iron Chef, week 3: Farmerie out

This week’s challenge involved the chefs visiting an Asian restaurant and studying one of its signature dishes. Afterwards, each chef was asked to prepare a dish with some of the same Asian influence but then transforming it into an American dish.

Chef Brad Farmerie got the boot this week. Our pick Chef Dominique Crenn was again in the bottom 2, but managed to survive (thank heavens)! Chef Seamus Mullen won the challenge. We were a little bit surprised that Chef Jehangir Mehta–who prepared an outlandish shake with “take out” containers–was not in the bottom 3. The dishes did not look like dishes, but a collection of containers. Then again, we don’t get to taste the samples on TV. So maybe it tasted better than it looked.
