Julian’s Celina Tio to challenge Michael Symon on Iron Chef America

  • Alton Brown is never not filming something.

Julian’s Celina Tio didn’t win the third season of the Next Iron Chef reality competition, but she’ll get her chance to defeat one of her judges in kitchen stadium. Tio will do battle with chef Michael Symon (currently one of the co-hosts of The Chew) in an episode slated to run on the Food Network next month. Iron Chef America is the American version of the long-running Japanese food program that has two chefs preparing dishes in a timed competition based on a secret ingredient.

The Iron Chef America episode featuring Tio and Symon airs at 10 p.m. Sunday, January 27, and will be rebroadcast on January 28 at 1 a.m. Odds are that Tio will plan a watch party at Julian (themed dinners have coincided with her previous reality-television appearances), and we’ll update this post accordingly.
