On the Next Iron Chef, chef Alex Guarnaschelli won the most honorable title of Iron Chef!
It was the series' first all-female finale and she beat Amanda Freitag to win the show!
The last challenge was to "pay tribute" to Iron chefs Masaharu Morimoto, Bobby Flay, and Michael Symon.
Not sure what exactly that entailed but she must've paid one heck of a tribute!
Senior vice president of the Food Network said:
"Chef Guarnaschelli is an extraordinary talent - the newly-crowned Iron Chef is exceptionally passionate, creative and skilled. Her journey for redemption has been fascinating to watch, and she has truly proven herself worthy of the title 'Iron Chef.'"
With the whole show now being about chefs who previously lost on the series coming back for a second shot at winning the title, the victory must've been all the sweeter!
The show airs Sunday, December 30th at 9pm on Food Network if you wanna see her win the title.
Congrats on winning, Alex!
