The Chairman's charge is SEDUCTION because an Iron Chef must seduce the taste buds. In the Secret Ingredient Challenge, the challenge is to create a seductive cocktail and snack in 30 mins. For the Chairman's Challenge, the challenge is to create the most luxurious Iron Chef meal ever using expensive ingredients like Mangalitsa Pork, Maine Lobster, Wagyu Beef and Hawaiian Moi Fish. Alton sends the chefs to gather more luxury ingredients from restaurants in the hotel. The chefs race to get the best ingredients and then land back in the hotel's room service kitchen to begin cooking. They have 90 minutes to create a 3-dish luxury meal featuring their main luxury ingredient. The final two chefs survive to meet in New York City where they will face off in legendary Kitchen Stadium.
