'Dancing with the Stars' Contestant Natalie Coughlin Served as Judge on 'Iron Chef America'

She may be known as the first American female athlete in modern Olympic history to win six medals in one Olympics and the first woman ever to win a 100 m backstroke gold in two consecutive Olympics, but Natalie Coughlin is also a home chef. And apparently, this qualified the 27-year-old swimmer to serve as a guest judge in last night's Super Chef Battle: An Iron Chef America Event. "I consider myself a good cook, but this is ridiculous," Natalie Coughlin, who also participated on Dancing with the Stars season 9, said of the highly anticipated culinary event of the new year. Super Chef Battle: An Iron Chef America Event featured Mario Batali, Bobby Flay, Emeril Lagasse and the White House Executive Chef Cristeta Comerford. First Lady Michelle Obama also appeared to challenge chefs to use the White House Garden's produce to create a meal to inspire America. "We are honored to showcase The White House Kitchen Garden in Iron Chef America," said Bob Tuschman, senior vice president, Programming and Production for Food Network. "This is the most intense culinary competition we've ever shown. It's awe-inspiring to see what four master chefs can create from locally-grown ingredients in the heat of Kitchen Stadium."

Michelle Obama to Present Ingredient on 'Iron Chef America'

The new season of " Iron Chef America " will get a little taste of the White House. The First Lady Michelle Obama is going to be the guest on the Food Network program, being the one who reveals the secret ingredient that the chefs must use in their cooking challenge. Cristeta Comerford, the White House executive chef, teams up with celebrity chef Bobby Flay to compete against the combination of Mario Batali and Emeril Lagasse. The battlefield would be Michelle's vegetable garden where participants are allowed to use whatever grow there to help create the meals. Michelle's appearance on the cooking show is not simply to welcome the chefs but also to talk about her goal in reducing the number of obesity and unhealthy school lunches for children. Batali commented, "What's exciting for us is this is the first time I can remember the White House taking an active interest in doing something about diet and health. They understand this kind of P.R." The episode had been shot in late October and will premiere on January 3 as the new season opener. The competition will be moved back to the New York Kitchen Stadium where the chefs will prepare five meals. Judges include Nigella Lawson, Olympic gold medalist Natalie Coughlin, and actress Jane Seymour. Source Here
