Who takes it? Who's cuisine reigns supreme?!
Friday nights have evolved into a TV tradition here at The Iconfactory.
Right around 10pm, many of us huddle close to our boob tubes in excited
anticipation of what is to be shown on the Food Network. What is this
that has glued us to our seats and has our taste buds screaming for
more? Why, its the latest craze from Japan of course - Iron Chef!
Every week we watch a hopeful challenger take on the likes of master
chefs Masaharu Morimoto (Iron Chef Japanese) or Masahiko Kobe (Iron
Chef Italian) to the delight of us at home and the colorful panel
of commentators and critics that make Iron Chef a cult hit. For those
of you out there that watch the show, all of this makes perfect sense
and is just about the greatest thing since sliced bread. To those
that have not seen the show, I cannot explain its appeal directly.
Perhaps its the pageantry, or the exotic theme ingredients, or the
music stolen from "Backdraft". Whatever it is, it has us
hooked and we knew, almost from the first episode, that we had to
make icons based on the show.
The result is the enclosed folder of over 30 icons of the people,
food and things from Iron Chef. Since there have been so many shows
to date, we couldn't possibly represent every single theme ingredient.
We chose some of our favorites instead, along with the main players,
and miscellaneous objects from Kitchen Stadium. The result is a fun
set of icons that fans of the show should really love. Enjoy!
