The set has top-of-the-line equipment to ensure that the chefs face no technical issues and have the best facilities available. The rest of the setting is designed according to the format of each edition of the series.
Whether it’s the giant doors that reveal the possible secret ingredients or the kitchen where the Iron Chefs and the Challengers battle it out, the whole staging is appealing to the eye. The aesthetic certainly lends well to the added flair that the show is known for. The set was originally the location for ‘Iron Chef America;’ however, it was redesigned to suit the need of ‘Iron Chef: Quest for an Iron Legend’ and the participants.
Los Angeles Center Studios is one of the prime locations within the city for production. As of writing, it has six film production sound stages as well as areas that can be used for theatres and other events. Another reason behind the facility’s popularity is its prime location. Most film studios in the Los Angeles area are located in the suburbs or adjacent cities, but Los Angeles Center Studios is one of the few right amidst Downtown Los Angeles. Other well-known projects produced within the complex are ‘The Rookie‘ and ‘Wrath of Man.’
