The New Potato: In a refreshing twist, Donatella Arpaia gives future Iron Chef judges advice on sitting on the panel, instead of imparting her wisdom upon competitors. The countdown to a Next Iron Chef Judge TV show begins. The winner, we predict, will be an annoying blogger.
Eater: This trailer for pig’s blood, partridge, and duck liver macaroons at Mugaritz looks like Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto. Needless to say, we continue to love movie trailer foods.
