(Apologies for the not-so-great scanning job... it's like the third time I've used the scanner, cut me some slack!)
I must say that the challenger would have won this Peanut Butter Battle. The bar was largely flavourless, and was presented without flair or imagination.
Sakai isn't my favourite Iron Chef; Chen Kenichi is, and I'd probably like his food the best, too (Szechuan usually!). And what's up with that Iron Chef Italian guy who's never on the show?
Apparently, there were three different bars, one per Iron Chef (Chinese, Japanese, French).
If you've never seen Iron Chef, it's the best cooking show ever.
