We already knew it would happen, we just did not know when. Tom Douglas had mentioned on his radio show that he would be participating in an episode of Food TV's Iron Chef America.
In today's Seattle Times food section Nancy Leson get's the cat out of the bag. This weekend, two of the city's best chefs will battle it out in New York.
Tamara vs. *Batali and Douglas vs. Morimoto will air in August. While I must admit to be more of an Ina Garten sporadic viewer that eschews the rest of FoodTV's programming, this I definitely will have to see!
*Mario Batali as in son of local favorite Armandino Batali, the owner of Salumi...who, by the by, will be in Seattle cooking from his new book Molto Italiano at his father's 3rd Avenue joint May 16th for a sold out event.
