I am enjoying traveling Around the World in 80 Plates, with Cat Cora, but I was wondering if she will ever go back to Iron Chef?
—Rachel Cruz, Amarillo, Texas
There is only so much time in her schedule, says Cora, 44, who traveled to 10 countries in 44 days for Around the World in 80 Plates, expanding her line of cookware and opening Cat Cora’s Kitchen in several additional airports in the process. But, says the Jackson, Miss.-born chef, “I am still on Iron Chef. I was pregnant one season two years ago, and then I skipped [last] season for other projects. I will be back this season.”
