Tsai Beat Flay......

In the Duck Battle. What a battle!!! Tsai attempted Peking duck in under 1 hour.

Tsai went with a dessert item using duck. Some Creme Bru lei type item.

Flay had one item that used a serrano peppers and one that used a habanero peppers.

These asian chefs are getting weird on us, dessert duck after hearing about trout eyeball icecream and the other one, I think I gag on these.

I hate Flay so much I don't care who beats him, as long as they do! He's an embarresment to America, ruder than an Italian New York cabbie (from Brooklyn) who only get's a $20 tip for a $5 fare, nd I wouldn't eat in one of his pepper-palaces if they were the last fast-food joints on the earth.

I always cheer for his challenger.

he's a good one mac-jr.

michael, i have a few cabbie friends that wanna have a little talk with you, maybe go for a little walk, capisce? :D

i watched that battle, flay got his butt whipped on taste, but it was pretty much a dead heat on originality and presentation. i cringed listening to flay clumsily describe his dishes. ming tsai came away looking very good, very classy.

at least the battle was good, and the judges had some interesting things to say. the guy from "queer eye" was pretty funny.

i still think they could have done away with the chairman thing and just gone with a good host/emcee. terrible casting.

Actually to an extent Flay fit's in really nicely with Iron chef america.

It's kinda like wrestling... we need that guy who walks around being pompous and causes us to boo him and throw stuff the screen when he wins. To a lesser extent Iron chef (the original) had that in Kobe who could REALLY let his ego get the best of him (like when he went up against the mexican chef, I was ready to strangle my tv). It just makes for good television and I mean it's not like Flay cant cook, he's just not the best.

I can't stand Flay or Mario. I like Ming...... he looks like a nice guy.

Hummm ... maybe that didn't come out the way I ment it? I was thinking about my ex-father-in-law and his two brothers - Italian New York cabbies (from Brooklyn) - guess I should have mentioned that? :oops:

MinFtW, I find Flay charming and I would love to go to the Mesa Grill. I did not like his first show with the bimbo, but I like both of his later ones.
