    Wow, it's a tie!!!

    I think the next Iron Chef should be in 2 months. Interest seems to be dropping off. What do people think?

    I think you may be right. Mid-late October would be about right. Unfortunately, it may be light by one entry, as October is not the best month for me (house to be finished, 3 assignments due and 2 exams, bucks weekend and getting married). Perhaps I could enter a take-away dish...:lol:

    I'd also like to see 2 weeks between the announcement of the ingredient, and when its due, It makes it alot easier to plan your cooking and shopping.
