Iron Chef Tom

Celebrity chef Tom Douglas runs Seattle's best-known culinary empire (Dahlia Lounge, Etta's, Palace Kitchen, Lola's), but can he handle the national spotlight? Indeed he can; Douglas bested Masahara Marimoto in this week's episode of Iron Chef America. His secret weapon: smoked salmon with a poached egg.

It came down to taste. One judge complained that her salmon was "too firm" and Tom looked devastated. But a second judge loved it and awarded him enough points for a convincing win. Bravo!
