Michael Solomonov vs Garces in Iron Chef Battle Passion Fruit

New, 4 comments

Last night on Iron Chef America, Michael Solomonov (Zahav, Philadelphia) challenged Iron Chef Jose Garces in a Philadelphia showdown. The secret ingredient: Passion Fruit. This time there were four judges — author Michael Ruhlman, TV host Bal Arneson, Las Vegas critic John Curtas, and food festival guru Lee Schrager — and they much preferred Garces' global culinary tour over Solomonov's Israeli-influened dishes, giving Garces the win with a score of 75-59.
