    The theme was beets. I can not think of too many ways to cook beets but Cantu and Morimoto made it look simple. There were desserts and high tech gadgets used to prepare the food. The imersion pan for the eggs was a special touch. Iron Chef Morimoto was on top of his game and I thought surely the clear winner of the challenge. The judges were fair indeed and most dishes looked appetizing although the fish protien element was over done in I thought. Iron Chef Morimoto appeared calm during the tasting of his food. The red LCD name tags on Chef Cantu were a little distracting. Final score? Cantu beets (that's a pun there) beats Morimoto by one point. One point!moreless

    • Alton Brown: We can see Iron Chef is over there using a knife that's at least 75 times longer than that beet. It's like using Excalibur to peel a ping pong ball!

    • Alton Brown: I'm sorry to laugh, but here in Kitchen Stadium it's like a James Bond movie meets Chitty Chitty Bang Bang meets Woodstock and I'm confused.

    • Jeffrey Steingarten: I've heard that beets are good for removing fatty deposits.
      Alton Brown: This is absolutely true, sir.
      Jeffrey Steingarten: And you've never tried it?
      Alton Brown: I don't have any fatty deposits, Jeffrey. So I don't need to try that.
