Interview With The Next Iron Chef Contestant Marco Canora

Marco Canora on The Next Iron Chef: "It's Very Real"

Season three of The Next Iron Chef is almost halfway through, and competition's getting fierce. Slashfood spoke to current contender Marco Canora, chef and owner of New York City restaurant (and David Chang favorite) Hearth for a behind-the-scenes look at the show.

Reality television took Canora by surprise: "I was surprised that it was as real as it was. What you see is what you get," he reflects. And although he's adamant that "there was no weird animosity," he also has mixed feelings about judge (and fellow Manhattan restaurateur) Donatella Arpaia: "It's kind of mind-blowing. No one was able to figure her out," he admits. Head over to Slashfood to watch the full interview.
