Eat Lunch Like an Iron Chef

When we visited Chef Marc Forgione at his restaurant (in secret!) shortly before his winning moment aired on The Next Iron Chef, we wanted to see him in his element: Back in the kitchen, cooking. But Restaurant Marc Forgione is closed for lunch, so the laid-back, mohawked chef asked what he should prepare from the menu. We got back to him with this proposition: "Just make yourself some lunch. Doesn't have to be anything fancy—whatever you'd normally whip up."

The resulting pork belly and pickled apple sandwich is so addictively delicious, we had to share Chef Forgione's recipe with you. Iron Chef Forgione's recipe, that is.

Check out the making of this sandwich and get a tour of Marc Forgione (the restaurant). Plus, read our exclusive Q&A with the newest toque in Kitchen Stadium.
