Jewish Vegetarian Chef on Iron Chef America

Tomorrow night on the Food Network, Amanda Cohen will become the first vegetarian chef to compete on Iron Chef America. After seeing an episode of Top Chef last year in which chefs had to make a vegan dish for guest Natalie Portman, I can see that the combination of a vegetarian and a reality cooking show is going to make for good television!

Here’s what I wrote about Cohen after she was named as one of the Heeb100 in 2009:

Amanda Cohen, chef and owner of the New York City vegetarian restaurant Dirt Candy, was named in the food category. Cohen responded, “For everyone who has wondered about a Jewish conspiracy to control the world, I was just inducted into Heeb Magazine‘s ‘Heeb 100,’ which is sort of the next best thing. It’s a list of ‘smart, innovative and young’ [J]ews who are expected to control the world in the near future, or at least small portions of it.” Cohen added that she recently met with a rabbi to discuss getting kosher certification for Dirt Candy. She is currently featured on PETA’s as Chef of the Month.

If you’re like me and you don’t have cable, you can always check out a stellar vegan cooking competition in New York City instead: Veggie Conquest!

    My husband and I went to Dirt Candy about 5 months ago…we read about her in Heeb! The food is delish and we were able to talk to her as she has many roles in the restaurant! Loved our meal! She really knows her way around the veggies! Make a reservation….it was packed before Iron Chef. I am sure it will only get more busy after this.
