King of Iron Chefs - SF #2 - Bell Pepper Battle - Morimoto vs. Sakai
Date Added: Mar 04, 2008 10:07 PM
Description: Chairman Kaga wants to close Kitchen Stadium with epic battles like none we have ever seen. He orders his Iron Chefs to create dishes that do justice to their careers in Kitchen Stadium.

Hiroyuki Sakai is a leader in French cuisine in Japan. He has the best winning percentage of any Iron Chef. His slogan for this battle will be -King of Iron Chefs-. He wants to keep his cool while boosting his fighting spirit to the limit.

Masaharu Morimoto is a Japanese chef who expands the boundaries of Japanese cuisine. His slogan for this battle will be -Focus-. Morimoto was often under pressure as the Iron Chef and was, at times, even overwhelmed. He wants to focus on finding his origins as a chef.

The Delacroix of French Cuisine vs. The Naughty Morimoto

The theme ingredient is one that neither of these Iron Chefs have used in battle before. Chairman Kaga loves this vegetable and is known to bite into it raw on occasion. (Well, on every opening sequence, anyway.)

^Naughty Morimoto?

I loved Sakai's slogan, "King of Iron Chefs." So straightforward, though you don't get the feeling he's being haughty. Just something for him to "focus" on, like Morimoto's slogan. Again, a top notch battle. Not as interesting an ingredient as the first KoIC battle, but one you can do just as much with. I was surprised they didn't make more colorful sauces, but then again, that has been done before. (I remember one battle featured three bell pepper purée sauces on one plate) I was impressed by both and loved Morimoto's creativity, as always.

I don't know why I just thought of it, but it's a shame that Tamio Kageyama couldn't have been there... :(

Great battle

Ripplin, I'm enjoying your comment with a lot of agreement these days.

I thought too that Tamio Kageyama, one of the good judges could havebeen there but he died January 27, 1998. Hirayama-san, an old judge too passed away more years before... sad.. they were ICJ families though.
