The REAL Rules for Iron Chef America…?

Did you ever wonder how the heck the chefs on the show can so quickly start preparing dishes …right after supposedly just being told what the “secret” ingredient is?
According to the internet stuff I looked at, this guy’s post seems to sum up the food cognoscenti’s general consensus:
“The high-end, hardback, by-invitation-only professional chef’s magazine Art Culinaire, explained the rules to this about a year ago. The chefs are given a list of 5 ingredients at least one month before they will perform. An hour before they begin, they are told which of the 5 ingredients they will actually be “surprised” with, so that they can consult with their sous chefs. In Iron Chef Japan, they did not have this advance notification.
More important, in Iron Chef Japan the chefs had to prepare and plate ALL of their food within the hour. In the Iron Chef America version, they only need to plate ONE of each dish, and also there are never more than four servings needed (one for the Chairman and three for the judges). Some of the Iron Chef Japan episodes required serving as many as seven—and everything had to be plated within the hour. It is obvious from watching Iron Chef America that they only plate one of each dish before the timer is up kamagra oral jelly.”
From watching the show myself, I agree that they absolutely must have been told the “secret” ingredient before-hand or at least have been provided 3-5 options – for which they would have developed recipes with their sous chefs for each possible contingency.  It is also true – and 100% clear from the broadcast (but never mentioned by Alton or anyone else) – that they only have to plate one of each dish…and then get time to plate the additional 3 required dishes, some time after the “battle” concludes…which is edited out or not filmed at all, presumably (to further shield it from being leaked to the public).
That’s just what I’ve dug up and/or surmised myself from watching the show so often.  …so there is some speculation here and some internet research.  …and I ALWAYS trust what I read online.  Well no, but it really seems to square with what makes sense, what is possible, and what I’ve seen with my own two eyes.
