  1. New episodes, new chefs, new music, new "nephew" of the old chairman. And a completely redesigned Kitchen Stadium. No subtitles, but the same focus on the cooking and ingredients.
  2. Fuji TV has brought back Iron Chef beginning last October. From what I hear, reviews are mixed. I will give my own impressions if I can watch it somewhere.
  3. The bottle in front of me says: Shao xing rice wine. Cheng Brand. Shaoxing East Asia Inp & Exp Co. Ltd. Imported by Four Seasons Trading Company. There is another one, but it has more Chinese than English on it, and I'll have to get help to tell you what it says.
  4. We have a (mainly) Korean grocery nearby (metro Detroit) that sells it. I'll check for brands the next time I'm there.
  5. Great restaurant closing. http://www.columbusdispatch.com/live/conte...EJ.html?sid=101
  6. Then we have different tastes, m'dear. I'm not adverse to changing an "old" recipe, but we can't throw out the old in the name of the "new". There has to be a reason the recipes lasted so long.
  7. I was given a book called "Eating India" by Chitrita Banerji. No recipes, but a wealth of cultural and food culture information. To be read in small bites.
  8. FTV showed a very abbreviated version of the 2 France battles, without the storyline of Kaga winning the chateau in a game of chess. Chen did not battle--only Sakai and Nakamura. ←
  9. Yes, those were the Battle France episodes, I believe. Absolutely terrific. Although my favorite ep was when Pierre Gargaigne, after losing his resturant and nearly being crushed under the wheel, battled back to defeat the Iron Chef. And promptly broke down in sobs. He has since opened a new resto and is doing well. I think even the Japanese were sobbing with him. ←
  10. I just got Morimoto's new cookbook (Morimoto, the new art of Japanese cooking). It's a good read with lots of background information. I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, though.
  11. Still haven't answered my question. Did they lose 1 or 2 ICs? Or do they subscribe to the "bigger/more is better" school of thought?
  12. What's this program called "The next iron chef". I saw a very short commercial about it. Has FTV lost 1 or 2 iron chefs?
  13. This is fun. While the cyclists go through different parts of Italy, I am finding and trying recipes, wines, and chesses of the regions they go through. So far, I've done Capri/Sardinia, Frascati and Tuscany. Yum!
  14. Try this: http://www21.sbs.com.au/tdf/?pid=taste It contains recipes from the region of each stage, as well as wine.
  15. I'd bet good money that the Japanese would not tolerate such programming junk. -Dick ← Yes, it airs in Japan.
