RALEIGH, N.C. — Walter Royal, executive chef of the Angus Barn restaurant, has been named one of 23 nationally acclaimed chefs invited to compete on Food Network's "Iron Chef America" TV series.
Royal will travel to New York City for a taping of the show on Jan. 23. There is no word on when the appearance will air on TV.
"This is a great honor for me and the Angus Barn,"said Royal. "I look forward to competing against one of the famed Iron Chefs and will do my best to represent the Triangle area and North Carolina."
The show features world-class chefs taking on the reigning Iron Chefs -- Bobby Flay, Mario Batali, Masaharu Morimoto and Cat Cora -- in a 60-minute culinary showdown. A distinguished panel of judges scores each dish based on taste, presentation and originality.
