    Iron Chef Manga Style

    'Iron Chef' on the food network has become a cult classic TV show. This odd, cooking competition show, imported from Japan and set within a small stadium setting complete with an audience and expert judges, has spawned an American version called 'Iron Chef America'. Shinji Saijyo's Iron Wok Jan is kind of a Manga version of the TV show, at least this current issue as 32 great chefs are competing in a Chinese cooking competition. The first competition is a battle with Tofu dishes and as volume 17 opens Jan Akiyama, the arrogant yet renowned chef has stunned the audience by scoring a low 15 out of 100 points with his dish. But the judges rule that it wasn't truly a tofu dish, much to the delight of food critic Nichido Otani who hates Jan and wants him out of the cooking industry. Other contestants come after Jan and get high scores with their dishes, including his fellow chefs from the Gobancho Restaurant, Kiriko Gobancho and Celine Yang, as well as a mysterious chef from California. Nichido embarrasses Jan, and even has him down on his knees as Jan stubbornly refuses to accept his score until the judges try his Somen noodles. Nichido tells him it will never happen but as the contest goes on, Jan's noodles begin simmering and ripening, giving off a powerful aroma that almost seduces everyone who smells it. Soon the judges are practically stampeding to try Jan's noodles as Jan explains his incredible technique and Nichido steams in anger. But can Jan reverse his score high enough to make it to the next round? And what other surprises are in store for the competitors? Iron Wok Jan really is quite like watching the Iron Chef TV show. The chefs use very exotic ingredients that are foreign to most Americans as well as using some rather inventive cooking techniques. Saijyo certainly seems to know his way around a kitchen. The book even comes with a few recipes such as marinated cucumber & octopus, and various types of potstickers. It's a fun book...different than other types of Manga in its unique and specialized subject matter. I enjoyed it.
