I've been wondering when Charles Phan would do battle on the Food Network's "Iron Chef America."Turns out that he did last year and now the episode will air -- this Sunday, November 8, at 10 p.m (ET/PT). Phan battles Cat Cora so we'll see who prevails? (I'm getting tired of: "Whose cuisine will reign supreme?") I recall a battle where Mario Batali shamelessly rolls a fat, humongous rice paper roll that practically bursted because Batali over stuff (no-no number 1). If Charles and his crew employ rice paper (banh trang), I'm sure they'll do it right and with more grace. Cora grew up in Mississipi so I wonder if catfish will be involved? Hmm....
