Sorry chairman, but the revolving door is not doing it for me. I tried watching the first Zakarian show, and ended up shutting it off in the middle and deleting it.
Zakarian, Forgione, Garces are certainly talented chefs, but that's all they are to me. Watching a show with them as the Iron Chef to me is like watching two challengers. In the immortal words of Bill Parcells, they are simply JAGs. Just another guy.
Flay, Morimoto, and Batali have that something extra.
