The countdown to the premiere of Next Iron Chef has officially begun (Sunday, October 30) and who better to kick it off than season three winner Marc Forgione? Nobody knows the stresses of the competition better than he does and with 10 new super-chefs lined up for season four, we asked Marc to share his lessons learned with the new contestants.

1. Do not underestimate any of your competitors.

2. Taste your food.  Sometimes, in the heat of battle, you get caught up in the craziness and forget the basics like tasting your food.

3. Be fair.  If you need a small amount of parsley, take a little and leave the rest for the others.If you’re going to win, you want it to be because you’re the best, not because somebody didn’t have something.  Plus, it’s good karma.

4. Don’t cut yourself. A cut really sets you back when time is of the essence.

5. Follow your gut.  When the battle begins, your first instinct is usually the right one. I never second-guessed anything I thought of last season. You need to trust yourself.

Marc Forgione competed on and won season three of The Next Iron Chef in 2010, beating out some of the country’s top chefs for the ultimate culinary title – Iron Chef. Chef Forgione began his career at the age of 16, joining his father, culinary legend Larry Forgione in the kitchen. Years later, he opened up Restaurant Marc Forgione in the New York City neighborhood Tribeca, which has received a two-star review from the New York Times.

    Marc was cheated on his last battle. He should have won!

    Lets just hope in this one, they dont use the saw and drums sounds for effect as much as they did in the last next iron chef. That got on my nerves SO much because it was happening almost every second in the show. I couldnt focus on anything else due to it….heres to hoping!!

    Can't wait for Sunday night!! I'm hoping it goes down to Anne and Alex. I like Michael Chiarello also (wish his show was still on).

  4. I don’t even know the way I stopped up right here, but I assumed this publish used to be good. I do not know who you’re but definitely you are going to a famous blogger when you aren’t already ;) Cheers!

  6. When I first saw this title Marc Forgione’s Advice to the New Iron Chef Contestants | FN Dish – Food Network Blog on google I just whent and bookmark it. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
