next iron chef 3 final marc forgione marco canora 320 'The Next Iron Chef': Forgione or Canora FTW? Vote!It’s down to two on “The Next Iron Chef.”

New York chefs Marc Forgione and Marco Canora withstood some pretty harrowing challenges and tough competitors (including Ming Tsai) to be the last chefs standing for the finale Sunday night (Nov. 21).

And after withstanding all that, the winner gets to do it all over again … and again as the newest in-house competitor on “Iron Chef America,” following in the footsteps of Michael Symon and Jose Garces before him.

Here’s a look back at the competition:

Chef Forgione – As the son of New York’s Larry Forgione, culinary creations are in Marc’s blood. The mohawked chef has only won two challenges: The Secret Ingredient challenge for Resourcefulness: pickles and the Chairman’s Innovation challenge to update a roadside diner classic. It was his masterful use of lobster for the Seduction challenge that landed him in the finals.

Chef Canora – He’s actually racked up the most wins for the season, two Secret Ingredient challenges — Respect: potatoes and Seduction: cocktail — and three Chairman’s challenges — Resourcefulness: two dishes from fish caught, Inspiration: buffet display and Seduction: three dishes from a secret luxury ingredient.
