Food Network’s ultimate culinary battle officially ended when Tudor House’s Chef & Partner Geoffrey Zakarian conquered Elizabeth Faulkner in the exciting holiday-themed finale of The Next Iron Chef: Super Chefs. After eight weeks of fierce competition, Zakarian has emerged victorious as the newest master to wield a knife in kitchen stadium. Iron Chefs Bobby Flay and Masaharu Morimoto joined regular judges Iron Chefs Michael Symon and Judy Joo, food journalist Simon Majumdar, and The Next Iron Chef host, Alton Brown, to anoint Zakarian as the latest member of the Iron Chef family.
“Chef Zakarian’s talent, skill and passion throughout this intense, all-star competition has been astounding to watch,” said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Programming and Production, Food Network. “Geoffrey is the embodiment of what being an Iron Chef is all about – he pushes the limits of creativity and innovation with his food, and that will certainly make his upcoming battles great entertainment.“
Tudor House is celebrating the victory with specials drawn from Zakarian’s “Next Iron Chef” creations. These include an amuse bouche of Halibut Crudo with Coconut, Lime and Olive Oil, Truffle Scramble Eggs ($28) and Caramel Pork Belly with Artichokes Bariguole ($24). All of these dishes will be available through December 31.
Zakarian’s restaurants include Tudor House in Miami and The Lambs Club and The National in New York City. He also oversees the dining program at The Water Club in Atlantic City. He will now appear regularly on “Iron Chef America,” demonstrating his razor-sharp knowledge of culinary techniques in this fast-paced cooking competition. When not battling in kitchen stadium, Zakarian stays busy filming “CHOPPED”, where he is featured as a recurring judge, and highlights his favorite dishes on “The Best Thing I Ever Ate.” Chef Geoffrey Zakarian’s first foray into battle as an Iron Chef will premiere on Sunday, December 25, at 9pm ET/PT.
