Filipina White House Chef Wins Iron Chef Face-Off

ABS-CBN, Posted: Jan 09, 2010

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Cristeta Comerford, the first-ever Filipino-American White House Executive Chef, got a chance to prove her culinary skills on the TV show Iron Chef America. Comerford joined forces with chef Bobby Flay to compete with chefs Emeril Lagasse and Mario Batali in a special season-opening episode of the top-rated cooking show. The show pits the country's top chefs against each other in a time-pressure cook-off challenge using a secret ingredient. After a frenetic hour of creating dishes that one judge described as "not of this world," the Comerford-Flay team emerged victorious. Comerford was the first White House chef to compete in Iron Chef America.

Comerford and Flay served up a fennel and apple salad with oyster; garden salad with lobster and crispy squid; a broccoli clam chowder that Mrs. Comerford said was Filipino-inspired; a 7-vegetable All-American barbecue dish that incorporated grilled pork, collard greens tamale, cauliflower cheese, and pickled watermelon radish. For dessert, they made a meringue sweet potato tart.
