Captain Brown — The Next Iron Chef Caption It

by in Shows, December 14th, 2012

Alton BrownOn last Sunday’s episode of The Next Iron Chef, the remaining rivals packed up their knife kits and flew east to Sin City after five weeks of challenges and showdowns in Los Angeles. For the chefs, the move to Las Vegas proved to be a turning point in the competition, a sign that they are one step closer to claiming the only title that matters.

For Alton Brown, however, the move to Vegas was an opportunity to dabble in matchmaking — ingredient matchmaking, that is. With an altar of savory delicacies and sweet confections, he created a series of odd pairs like squid and marshmallows, chicken livers and peppermint candies, and bone marrow and fruit candies, which forced the rivals to think beyond the ordinary and create harmonious marriages out of culinary confusion.

Looking ahead to this week’s episode and the sneak-peek image above, it may seem as though Alton is once again experimenting with something new: flying. It turns out, however, that he is a frequent flier, and not just in the passenger sense. For more than 10 years, he’s been operating his own private airplane and only relies on commercial flights when there’s no other option.

Although he may be no stranger to the friendly skies, Alton looks perplexed and perhaps a bit anxious as he sits in the cockpit of a helicopter. Is he preparing to take the final four chefs on an impromptu flight? Does this chopper play a part in the next Chairman’s Challenge, or will it be what takes home the next eliminated chef?

    It's pretty sad to hear what is supposed to be the best chefs complain that they are not buffet chefs and cooking for 25 people is the most they have done. Are you sure they are chefs?
