The battle has been joined and after Sunday night's round of Food Network's 'The Next Iron Chef,' there are just five contestants left in the competition. It was an intense episode and the judges made their final decision by the thinnest of margins.

For the second challenge, the test was much more daunting: Create four dishes that exemplify the four regions of America -- north, south, east and west -- in just 90 minutes ... keeping in mind that respect is the key.
