Sea Monster Week will feature lots of crazy underwater creatures, starting with Battle Octopus on Monday,August 18, then Battle King Crab, Battle Giant Eel, and Battle Squid, before the formidable Battle Ashura Oyster on FridayAugust 22.
Five budding culinary stars take on the Iron Chef champs in this week long epic event. Some will survive and some won’t.
If you are missing the Iron Chef and want to see great cooking before the new season begins, or ever wondered what calamari was, then this is the show for you! Maybe you will learn a thing or two about cooking giant eel and monster squid in the process!
Iron Chef Japan airs every night this week at 8 PM ET on the Fine Living Network.
