When we spoke with Alton Brown a few weeks back, he didn't even give us the slightest hint as to who would last the longest of our two Angeleno "Next Iron Chef" competitors. Sadly, it turned out that Eric Greenspan went home after the third episode. (Greeny stands behind his dish though, as evidenced by his putting the cereal-crusted tuna on the menu at the Foundry last week.) But before he did, we got a chance to break the fast with him and fellow cheftestant Marcel Vigneron over at Culina in Beverly Hills.

The two had just come from an on-air cooking competition at a local radio station, and were all fired up. Take a look. (Oh, and for the record: We do not hate all mayonnaise, just the processed junk that comes in a jar. All mayos are not created equal. Just make the stuff in your blender for Pete's sake! It takes two seconds and tastes entirely different.)
