A Filipina Iron Chef

What a way to start the year.

Pinay Chef Cristeta Comerford and Chef Bobby Flay won against Chefs Emeril Lagasse and  Mario Batali in the Super Chef Battle of Iron Chef America!

Flay said to Cristeta, I told her don’t be afraid to use her Filipino background, which have a lot of flavors there.

Will this mean that Filipino Cuisine will finally get the same recognition as our Asian counterparts? If you googled for Asian recipes, most of the time you’d come up with Thai, Nyonya, Chinese, Korean or Japanese dishes. Only Filipino’s abroad would search for Filipino recipes on the web.

I dont know when the show would be aired here in the Philippines but here is a preview from youtube

This was the teaser trailer
