Iron Chef America

Iron Chef Australia is an Australian cooking show based on the Japanese show Iron Chef, as well as its American adaptation Iron Chef America. The program is a sort of culinary game show, with each episode seeing a challenger chef competing against one of the resident “Iron Chefs” in a one-hour cooking competition based on a theme ingredient.
The show was put into production by the Seven Network mainly to capitalise on the success of the Network Ten cooking show MasterChef Australia,[1] and is produced by that show’s current production company Shine Australia. It premiered on Seven on 19 October 2010.
