I really dont mind either Iron chef, or the show going on now, the next iron chef, its all good fun and some good looking food. All are great chefs. I have actually catered an event with Chef Morou a couple of years back. And Chef Besh is also a good guy who I have met at an event before.
But, I do know for a fact who is leaving the show, and that is Mario Batali.
I cant give details why, quite yet, but when I am given the Okay, I will let you know. Chef Batali is actually leaving the Food Network in general, which is why his show Molto Mario, has also been canceled. Again, I do know the reason in which he is leaving, but I cant say at this point in time.
