Traci Des Jardins
The news season of Food Network's "The Next Iron Chef" brings together eight of the nation's best chefs. These aren't "up and comers." They are established masters of a new cooking generation -- aiming to "stir" things up on the immensely popular show. They're pitted against household names like Batali and Flay, and every episode, one of these new chefs gets eliminated, until we're down to a final chef who can join the likes of "Morimoto," Cat Cora and other Iron Chef superstars. Eliminated last night was San Francisco chef Traci Des Jardins, and she's here to talk to us about her culinary hits and misses, and being on the hit show.
