Denyer said of the career move:
"I'm not a foodie. I'm as green as a capsicum when it comes to food. Living on the road with Sunrise, my cuisine consists of two-minute noodles and Chiko Rolls. I'm going to enjoy being inspired by great food and talented chefs. It's a huge honour to be involved."
In keeping with Iron Chef's reputation, the team is sure to be scathing when casting a critical eye over the contestants' culinary creations.
Joining the team as the commentator is Richard Cornish, an award-winning food writer and regular food contributor for the Sydney Morning Herald.
