Iron Cheffage

While the stateside popularity of Iron Chef is undeniable, apparently the show is even an even bigger phenomenon with our soldiers serving in Iraq. A little piece from an army newspaper today, The Ft. Leavenworth Lamp, explains that when the soldiers have some downtime, they split off into groups and participate in their own version of Iron Chef, using c-rations. The rules and time restrictions are just the same as on the show, as is the importance of the always tricky secret ingredient. Says one of the army participants: "I was happy with all the ingredients, but we just couldn't figure out how to use the spaghetti noodles." [Ft. Leavenworth Lamp]
