Chef Mehta did a regular Iron Chef not too long ago. I forget who it was against. He almost won the battle. He seemed more versatile in that one than he has on the Next Iron Chef competition. I am voting for Chef Garces right now. Chef Mehta just seems like somebody I wouldn't want to watch on a regular basis.
I'm still shocked that Amanda Freitag was eliminated. We needed another woman in the Iron Chef group !!!
