Iron (Bar) Chef on Food Network 4/10

Having just upgraded to standard cable (yes, I'm officially no longer a cave dweller), my TV is now almost always fixed on my favorite, The Food Network. All week, they've been re-airing a classic episode. This twist on the usual Iron Chef brings in mixologists to partner with chefs for to vie for the prize. In this episode, bar experts Tony Abou-Ganim and Bridget Albert partner with chefs Mario Batali and Robert Gadsby to prepare five drinks that also highlight the secret ingredient. Sounds like a page pulled from the cocktail pairing story in our March/April issue. Julie Reiner from Flatiron Lounge and Ted Allen judge.

Tune in or TiVo it, April 10, 12 p.m. ET/PT.

I love that episode! What about a whole bar chef spin off series?
