Following in the footsteps of Joule chefs Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi, Tilth’s Maria Hines will compete on “Iron Chef” in an episode that will air on August 1, according to a tweet that Hines sent out today.
Hines will compete against Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto in the show that pits two chefs against each other to create many dishes using one (often unusual) theme ingredient.
The show description says:
Celebrated Seattle Chef Maria Hines enters kitchen stadium to challenge the master himself, Iron Chef Morimoto. Will Chef Hines be able to stand the heat of Kitchen Stadium, or will she leave with the bitter taste of defeat in her mouth? Tune in to see whose cuisine reigns supreme.
