Is Bobby Flay stepping down from the Iron Chef throne? EW reports the chef has left the Food Network TV show Iron Chef Showdown.
Flay has competed on the popular cooking series since 2000. Hosted by Alton Brown, the competition program pits professional chefs against each other in a timed cook-off based on a secret ingredient or theme.
According to Vanity Fair food writer Allen Salkin, Flay appeared at a recent taping of Iron Chef Showdown wearing a shirt that read “THIS IS MY LAST IRON CHEF BATTLE EVER.” As of now, it’s unclear if Flay really does intend to leave the long-running series or if Food Network will air/edit the upcoming episode.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Iron Chef? Would you still watch without Flay?
