Amanda Cohen Will Flex Some Veggie Muscle on Iron Chef


Having already slayed the competition in the PETA Fine Faux Gras Challenge, Amanda Cohen will take on Masaharu Morimoto on Iron Chef next Sunday, the 29th. The Dirt Candy chef, who is the first vegetarian chef to compete on the show, emailed us to let us know that the episode will be aired at 10 p.m. She’ll be having a viewing party at Angels & Kings, located near the restaurant at 500 East 11th Street. It’ll commence at 9 p.m., and Cohen helpfully points out that she’ll “be the one dying of embarrassment in the corner.”
