After the shoot, the crew took home 35 quarts of various pickles from the Secret Ingredient challenge

Food Network’s culinary production team is in charge of everything food-related on the set of The Next Iron Chef. Executive culinary producer Jill Novatt shares some behind-the-scenes tidbits from the Resourcefulness episode of Season 3.

Secret Ingredient Challenge (Pickles): “We had pickled garlic, pickled tomatoes, pickled chiles, whole dill, hot pickle chips, bread and butter chips, kosher halves. After the shoot, we gave away over 35 quarts of various pickles to the crew.”

Chairman’s Challenge (Fishing): “There were 42 crew members on both boats (the one the chefs fished on and the “follow” boat!) Eight crew members got seasick. We picked up our live sardine bait from a bait boat anchored out beyond the harbor. One of the crew members of the boat who was also fishing actually got “stung” on his hand by one of scorpion fish. The Next Iron Chef medic who is on set for every challenge fixed him up!”

Check out our behind-the-scenes gallery for more about this episode of The Next Iron Chef.
