Iron Chef Peanut Gallery 01:59

Check out a time-lapse of Steve Casino's peanut chefs in the making.

For the June issue of Food Network Magazine, artist Steve Casino turned ordinary peanuts into intricate Iron Chef caricatures. The "painter of nuts," who is also a professional toy inventor, says the most difficult part of the process isn't painting on such a small canvas, it's finding the perfect nut — he'll go through thousands of peanuts before finding the right shape.

Click play on the video above to catch a glimpse of the process and see the peanut chefs in the making.
