The show, which has been a major success in the US, is based on a stylized cooking competition featuring accomplished guest chefs battling one of the show's resident Iron Chefs in a timed cooking battle.
UK producer and distributor the Television Corporation has just signed a deal with Fuji Television to bring Iron Chef to the UK. The deal gives the company the option to produce the show in the UK and work with Fuji in building the brand across Europe.
Each episode of Iron Chef UK, which is expected to air on Channel 4 next summer, will see four guest chefs challenge the yet-to-be-named resident Iron Chefs in a cooking competition built around a specific theme or ingredient.
If you're a "confident and charismatic" chef and are available for filming between 4-26 February 2010 here's your chance to get your 15 minutes of fame.
