“East Meets West” star Chef Ming Tsai is the only American-born Iron Chef.
“It represents a global style and approach,” says Brown. “It’s fresh. I’m seeing things I’ve never seen before. He’s saying something.”
Iron Chef is chosen to fight challenging chefs in individual competitions.

“If a lone challenger takes them down, shame, shame!” Dacascos says. “But if the challenger can pull it off, honor it. Until a challenger wins the chef trophy, he will stand.”
Brown says the team at Iron Chef creates its own strain.
“As much as they like to work as a team, they are extremely competitive individuals,” says Brown. “It’s a messy, big bowl of arrogance going on out there.”

“In the old days, Mark was very serious,” Brown says. “But he managed to bring an absolutely adorable zenness to the president. And someone at Netflix told him to do it 11 now.”
