TVFN announces a new Iron Chef will be chosen in The Next Iron Chef competition. The six-part series premiering in October features eight chefs battling each other (not the existing Iron Chefs) to become the fifth Iron Chef. Personally, I'm rooting for Aaron Sanchez to become the first Iron Chef Mexican. The presence of Michael Ruhlman on the judging panel should ensure the online bonus of Tony Bourdain blogging the play-by-play on Ruhlman. Full press release after the jump.
