Jena Wolfe of The Today Show gives a behind the scenes glimpse of Iron Chef America. She did her story during one episode I happened to be judging, along with my fellow haircut (who in fact makes a very good literary point in this 3-minute story). I was glad to see the show's producer, Stephen Kroopnick, interviewed, and of course Alton being Alton. I was also glad that Lester Holt pointed out that the cooking takes place in real time. But I'd very much like to know why Symon thinks he doesn't need to put a top on his Vita-Prep.
