What to expect from the series
The Mexican version will follow the same premise as the other Iron Chef programs.
All chefs will compete in a studio, each ‘battling’ the ‘Iron Chef’. Every chef hopes to impress a rotating panel of judges with their cuisine. Contestants use skill and creativity under immense time pressure to prepare different dishes.
For the unversed, an Iron Chef is an already-established chef who goes head-to-head with the contestants.
All the chefs will compete until a winner is declared and whoever comes out on top is gifted with a Katana. the long sword is associated with the Japanese Samurai and acknowledges the country where the show first originated.

Netflix has brought some of the best in the business for the Mexican series.
The original Chairman, Mark Dacasos, is to return for the show, while Roberto Solis serves as a new iron chef.

And, fans of the show are especially excited for Gabriela Ruiz, who’s well known for her gourmet restaurants and delicious cooking. She has even been named the top chef in Mexico by Forbes magazine.
The Mexican version of Iron Chef is sure to make an intense and mouth-watering watch. The first eight episodes are now available to binge on Netflix, but, at the time of writing, producers are yet to confirm if there’s more to come.
