Iron Chef Michael Symon

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)- Across the country, heated rivalries over local signature dishes divide cities – and Food Network's new primetime series Food Feuds will decide, once and for all, which dish defines the district. From Baltimore crab cakes and Philadelphia cheesesteaks to New York lobster rolls and New Orleans po' boys, Iron Chef Michael Symon searches the country to quell the most intense, long-standing culinary rivalries.

October is a huge month for Michael, one of America's culinary geniuses. He will not only be hosting this new primetime series (premiering on October 14), he will also join The Next Iron Chef (the show he WON to become an Iron Chef!) as a first-time judge.  The Next Iron Chef premieres on October 3. In the fiercest season-to-date, ten of the country's most accomplished chefs bet on their skills and put their reputations on the line for the chance to join the industry's most elite culinary society: the Iron Chefs.
