After weeks of competition against fierce rivals such as The Foundry's Eric Greenspan and Amanda Freitag of The Harrison, Chef Jose Garces was crowned the winner of Food Network's search for their "Next Iron Chef."

Last year's winner, Michael Symon, proved to be excellent casting, will Garces be as tasty? And will they finally get that man a sweat rag? The way he was shvitzing over his food during challenges has us wanting to call the health department.
