Chef Cat Cora, the first female chef on IRON CHEF AMERICA and judge on new ABC show FAMILY FOOD FIGHT, spoke to Gary Rivers Thursday morning on his show.

Cat Cora is a world-renowned chef, author, restaurateur, contributing editor, television host and personality, actress, avid philanthropist, lifestyle entrepreneur and proud mother of six who is best known for her featured role as the first female Iron Chef on Food Network’s “Iron Chef America.” Since then, she has shattered the glass ceiling as one of the first females to dominate the culinary industry, becoming the first female inducted into the American Academy of Chefs Culinary Hall of Fame, after having cooked in two three-star Michelin restaurants.
