Interview With The Next Iron Chef Contestant Bryan Caswell

The Next Iron Chef's Bryan Caswell on Gulf Cuisine

Food Network's The Next Iron Chef is down to its final four contestants. Slashfood caught up with the most recent chef eliminated, Houston restaurateur Bryan Caswell. The chef, who was affectionately dubbed "the linebacker ballerina" by the judging panel for his hulking stature but delicate food presentation, explains why he took on the televised challenge.

His main motivation for starring? To shed a positive light on Gulf Coast cuisine and give visibility to Bayou City: "I grew up around here, I love it, and I think it gets very little play as a viable culinary resource," he says of Houston, adding that Gulf seafood is "in fantastic shape." Head over to Slashfood to read more of Caswell's reflections.
