Not only did Mourad Lahlou chalk up a definitive victory over Cat Cora on Iron Chef America last night, but the Aziza bossman also shares some hot gossip on his juicy future plans, including more Iron Cheffage (!) and a new restaurant (!!).
Says Lahlou: "I’ll be on an episode of Iron Chef that’s out on March 1. I’m in negotiations with Food Network to be the next Iron Chef. I’m also hoping to open another restaurant this year. And I’m working on a cookbook."
Everyone got that? 2009: the Year of Mourad?
