Episode 3: Resourcefulness
The rivals kept top-secret journals during the competition. See Chef Dumont's plans for the fateful fish dishes that sent her packing.
An Iron Chef must be able to think on their feet, so the eight remaining chefs face a true test of resourcefulness. For the Secret Ingredient Challenge, the chefs make an imaginative snack from pickles. The competitors then bring their small bites on a fishing field trip where they all reel something in including a shark! Back in the kitchen, for the Chairman's Challenge, they make two dishes using the fish they caught. The finalists attempt to conquer the challenge and win over the judges, but one chef doesn't make the cut.
After a fishing field trip, Chef Dumont's catch of the day doesn't cut it with the judges.
