Beast's Naomi Pomeroy — Portland's go-to chef for national media mentions — will make an appearance on the Food Network's Iron Chef America this fall. There had been a pesky rumor floating around town recently that Pomeroy has been approached about being on at least one nationally televised food show; a show that just so happened to include a "secret ingredient."
When asked to confirm the rumor Pomeroy said: "Oh, yeah, we filmed an episode of Iron Chef America last October. It's supposed to run sometime around the end of this September." Due to her agreement, Pomeroy said she can't reveal any details about her appearance. "The only thing I can say is that it was just about one of the best experiences I've ever had."
