Donna's Cuisine Reigns Supreme

Congratulations to Galileo chef Roberto Donna for his win over Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto last night on Iron Chef America. The Italian chef more than avenged the loss he suffered during his first match by completing all five required dishes, plus one.

After a good deal of browbeating on camera (at right), Donna's bravado proved itself justified when the judges awarded him 54 points to Morimoto's 48 in Battle Squid. Donna definitely scored originality points with his tin of "caviar" --actually Israeli couscous stained black with squid ink -- a clever dish also done by Michel Richard at Citronelle.

You've done D.C. proud, Donna.
