Andaluca Chef Wayne Johnson Does Battle on Iron Chef

New, 1 comment

Chef Wayne Johnson of downtown restaurant Andaluca appeared on Food Network show Iron Chef America last night, taking on chef Michael Symon with cucumbers as the secret ingredient.

Working with a variety of cucumbers, Johnson whipped up a menu that included a gazpacho trio, salmon with cucumber aioli and a "cucumber-forward" sorbetto that judge Michael Ruhlman said "was the strongest use of the secret ingredient."

The episode will air again on Thursday at 11 p.m. Spoiler alert: Symon emerged the victor, but here are some highlights from Johnson's moment of Food Network glory.
