- Fukui Raps – Kitchen Stadium announcer Kenji Fukui briefly entertains the guests on a TV show that he hosts in Japan, Japonica Logos.

I did not put up a poll for the November ICC Exclusives, so I will be adding a few of my favorites some time this week.
I am really sorry about the sporadic posting of. . .well, anything over the last few weeks. I can’t seem to stay on any kind of regular schedule. I will have up some new videos before the weekend and I will have an ICC Exclusives post for Tuesday of next week. Again, I’m really sorry for not sticking with my previously planned posting schedule.
BTW, does anybody know an easy way to extract video from Sega Saturn discs? If so, contact me.
Female Voice: Ten battles remaining. Five battles. Three. Two. One.
Fukui: That’s it. The posting is done. The Food Network battles are ovah!
That’s right. This is the final Episodes of the Week with Food Network battles. With today’s additions, we now have the complete collection of episodes that aired on Food Network. We are the only place that you can watch every single episode of Iron Chef that aired on Food Network. (Not even FLN can say that.)
- Carrot (220) – Chen vs. Takahashi – The challenger finished right behind Chen at the World Championships of Chinese cooking in 1992. He trained under the great Zhou Tomitoku.
- Pineapple (420) – The challenger was the first Thai cuisine chef to enter Kitchen Stadium.
- Peach (629) – Sakai vs. Watabe – “Assistants? We don’t need no stinkin’ assistants.” This challenger is determined to work alone during this battle. Will Sakai do the same?
