||This is the first of the “return matches.” Four challengers who were previously defeated will return for a second chance at victory. The first challenger was defeated by Michiba in episode 321 (Broccoli). (You may also recognize Jo from the 2000th dish special.) His name is Etsuo Jo. He became well known for his sauces, he earned the nickname “The Jou of Sauce.” (The castle of sauce.) He wants another chance to show that his traditional French cuisine can win in Kitchen Stadium. For the return matches, the challenger selects one of four hidden theme ingredients. Needless to say, he hit the jackpot with Wine.
This episode is in Japanese with English subtitles. It may include some of the local commercials that were part of the local US broadcast.
There are two versions of the video. A lower quality DIVX episode and a higher quality VOB.
