Iron Chef Features Veg Contestant

Amanda Cohen will appear on Iron Chef America.

Veg chef Amanda Cohen, of the NYC vegetarian restaurant Dirt Candy, is scheduled to appear on the Food Network’s Iron Chef America. On what will be the show’s first vegetarian battle, Cohen will compete against Masaharu Morimoto, who was a frequent competitor on the original Japanese Iron Chef. “I didn't know anything ahead of time, but he did stick to a vegetarian menu, so it was vegetarian versus vegetarian,” Cohen said in an interview with Happy Healthy Life. The episode will debut August 29 at 10pm on the Food Network.
