Meet the New Iron Chefs:

· Curtis Stone - a Los Angeles-based Michelin-starred chef, restaurateur, author and culinary entrepreneur. In 2014, Curtis opened his first solo restaurant, Maude (Beverly Hills, CA), to immediate acclaim. Following the success of Maude, Curtis opened Gwen Butcher Shop & Restaurant (Hollywood, CA) in July 2016 with his brother Luke Stone. The brothers opened their second restaurant together, Georgie, in Dallas, Texas in fall 2019. Outside his restaurants, Curtis is widely known for his appearances on television programs such as Take Home Chef (TLC), Top Chef Masters (Bravo), the Emmy-nominated Top Chef Junior, an extension of the NBC Top Chef franchise, Field Trip with Curtis Stone on PBS, as well as making frequent appearances on Master Chef Australia. A New York Times best selling author, Curtis has authored six cookbooks including his most recent, Good Food, Good Life. In 2007, Curtis developed Kitchen Solutions, a collection of sleek and functional cookware, which has now become the best reviewed brand and top-selling culinary line on the Home Shopping Network. In 2016, Curtis began a new pledge to give back through his #Commit2One initiative. Each year he partners with a charity, devoting the majority of his time and resources to the cause.

· Dominique Crenn - Chef/owner of Atelier Crenn in San Francisco. She focuses on cuisine as a craft and the community as an inspiration. In November 2018, Crenn became the first female chef in the US to receive three Michelin Stars. She also owns Petit Crenn, an ode to the home cooking of Brittany; and Bar Crenn, a wine bar that pays homage to the Parisian salons of the early twentieth century. In 2021, she was honored with the World's 50 Best Icon Award for her constant presence in the international culinary community, promoting innovation, sustainability, and equality through her restaurant ideals and participation with various panels and summits.

· Marcus Samuelsson - Acclaimed chef behind restaurants worldwide including Red Rooster Harlem, MARCUS Montreal, Marcus B&P in Newark, Red Rooster Overtown, Streetbird at Yankee Stadium and Marcus at Baha Mar Fish + Chop House in the Bahamas. Samuelsson was the youngest person to ever receive a three-star review from The New York Times and has won multiple James Beard Foundation Awards including Best Chef: New York City and Outstanding Personality for No Passport Required on PBS. He is a longstanding judge on the hit Food Network show Chopped, head judge of Top Chef: Family Style and newly named Iron Chef on Netflix's rebooted Iron Chef: Quest for an Iron Legend. He also co-hosts This Moment podcast with Swedish rapper Timbuktu on ACAST. He is the author of multiple books including The New York Times bestselling memoir Yes, Chef: A Memoir and his latest book, The Rise: Black Cooks and the Soul of American Food.

· Ming Tsai - A James Beard & Emmy Award-Winning chef. Most recently, he founded MingsBings, a consumer-packaged goods startup bringing healthy, plant-based, gluten-free convenient food to the frozen food aisle. While studying at Yale University, earning his degree in Mechanical Engineering, Ming spent his summers attending Le Cordon Bleu cooking school and apprenticing at restaurants in Paris. In 1998, Ming opened Blue Ginger in Wellesley, MA. The James Beard Foundation crowned Ming "2002 Best Chef Northeast," Esquire named him Chef of the Year, and the Zagat Restaurant Guide consistently rated Blue Ginger within the "Top 5 of Most Popular Restaurants". In early 2013, Ming opened his second restaurant: Blue Dragon, an Asian gastropub located in Boston's Fort Point Channel area. Blue Dragon was named one of Esquire Magazine's "Best New Restaurants 2013," and one of Zagat's "24 New Restaurants You Need to Know About Around the US". Currently, along with MingsBings, Chef Ming is Chef/Partner at BaBa at Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, Chairman of the National Advisory Board for Family Reach, the author of five cookbooks, and recently completed his 18th season as host and executive producer of PBS-TV's Simply Ming.

· Gabriela Cámara - Restaurateur, chef and cookbook author behind restaurants Contramar, Entremar, Itacate del Mar and Caracol de Mar in Mexico City, as well as Cala in San Francisco (not currently open). Named to the 2020 TIME 100 list, the 2019 Bloomberg 50 list, in addition to being recognized as one of Fortune Magazine's Most Innovative Women in Food & Drink, Gabriela continues to pioneer sustainability practices and cultivate equitable environments at her restaurants while highlighting modern Mexican cuisine.

Synopsis: The legendary Iron Chef series is reborn with a supersized approach to the ground-breaking culinary competition that started it all. It's been called the toughest culinary challenge a chef will ever experience. This is where world-class cuisine meets high-octane sports. Five new trailblazing Iron Chefs will welcome brave Challenger Chefs to the reimagined Kitchen Stadium, where they'll face off and be pushed to the limits of endurance and creativity, as they cook up extraordinary culinary creations. The competition's most successful Challenger will return to battle in a grand finale for the chance to be named the first ever "Iron Legend."

The series is based on Fuji Television Network's format.

Netflix will also be releasing Iron Chef Mexico and Iron Chef Brazil this year.
