Allez Crafting!

By Twistie

I love Iron Chef… the Japanese version, as represented by the Chairman here. Sure it’s fun once in a while to watch Bobby Flay get his backside handed to him by a gutsy challenger, but it’s the original that appeals most strongly to me. The OTT presentation, the Chairman’s flamboyant sartorial statements, the bad dubbing of the obligatory ‘cute’ starlet saying a dish ‘makes my mouth giggle’ or some such nonsensical observation, it all makes me bizarrely joyful.

I wanted something similar for crafters. It existed for one brief, shining moment that was known as Craft Corner Deathmatch, but that went away after a mere six episodes.

But did you know there was something similar exists on the web? Oh my friends, if you have not already done so, go thou forth and check out Iron Craft. “1 Year, 52 Challenges… Are You Creative Enough?”

I’m betting a lot of you are.

    WOW! That is a huge undertaking, but woo hoo for irig. Iron Chef! My husband is growing his hair out and it’s a bit awkward at the moment. We were watching Iron Chef (nothing new, it’s on at 8pm (pst) on the cooking channel on weeknights) and he was running his fingers through his hair after taking off his hat. I looked at him and at the television screen and burst out with, “Oh man! You’re going for the full Chairman Kaga! Nice!” We had a good laugh at that one. =0)
