Well They Do Say That Presentation Matters

A recent episode of Iron Chef America had veteran Masaharu Morimoto taking on Chopped judge Geoffrey Zakarian in Battle Sardine. Morimoto, whose specialty is not only Japanese food but fish in particular provided a formidable challenge for Zakarian. During the tasting portion of the competition, Morimoto served “sardine tacos,” held together with what appeared to be colorful paper. Upon closer inspection however, the paper started to look a lot more familiar.


Milky Rose?!

Ladies and gentlemen, the US TV debut of Yes! Pretty Cure 5 Go Go!

Now as to why in the world Iron Chef Japanese would be incorporating a popular mahou shoujo series into his plating, I don’t have an actual idea, but I do have a few theories, some more outlandish than others.

Perhaps he has a daughter who’s a big fan of Precure, and this is his clever nod to her. Or perhaps Iron Chef Morimoto is himself a fan of the series. It could also possibly be that he chose it because the girls of Precure have colors which match well with the sardine tacos.

Or maybe he just grabbed whatever he could and this was the result.

Still, I think a lot more food could stand to be served on top of anime.

    Probably this.

    Totally agree with this. :P

  2. My sister has this origami paper. She brought it from a seller on LiveJournal and got it yesterday, and has scanned it on the computer and printed out the designs on 38 colorful index cards. She calls these cards “Index Pets!” according to a little card she wrote some info on (this is where I got the 38 cards count), a possibly play on words of a BANDAI clothing line, T-Pets, which featured Pretty Cure designs for some of their T-shirts.
