Video Games and Cooking Go Hand in Hand

Not only can we follow Iron Chef America on television, but soon we’ll be able to enjoy it interactively as well. Iron Chef America: Supreme Cuisine is hitting the Nintendo Wii and DS racks this fall. 3 Iron Chefs are participating – Mario Batali, Morimoto and Cat Cora, plus Alton Brown will be featured in his commentator role.

The Iron Chefs seem super hero-like at times, so I think this could be an awesome video experience. Here one could channel one’s aggression into chiffonading some exotic leafy greens or beating eggs to within an inch of their lives. And I’m sure the Iron Chefs themselves will have some wild moves, wielding knives and slurping sauces. As for Alton…I wonder if we’ll notice a difference between the game version and the real one…

No. Tell me it isn't so.

Nat,
I think an Iron Chef video game is a great idea. I'd rather have kids chopping onions than stealing cars.

I actually love the idea. I have a Wii, and am not quite sure how it will work, but I'll gladly cut up my Alaskan salmon with my remote :)

Adam,
I would love to see you chopping up fish with your game controller. Make sure you take lots of pictures.
