The Chairman has had a culinary epiphany - he would like to add a new Iron Chef to his roster of gifted and adventurous culinarians. The Chairman invites 8 of the best Chefs in America to engage in culinary combat. The winner of this first-ever series of extraordinary cooking challenges will be elevated to the status of Iron Chef and "his/her name will be known throughout the land." Alton Brown, the Chairman's trusted assistant and culinary commentator will oversee the proceedings and administer the challenges.

Alton Brown's flair in the kitchen developed early with guidance from his mother and grandmother, a budding culinary talent he skillfully used later "as a way to get dates" in college.
