Young Reilly Meehan as Iron Chef Morimoto

Reilly Meehan had a childhood fascination with food. While other kids were watching cartoons, Reilly was glued to The Iron Chef. After he managed to keep his eyes open for a 24-hour marathon of the Japanese show, his parents weren't really surprised when he masqueraded as Chef Morimoto for Halloween. It was also no surprise when Reilly chose to attend culinary school and his folks think he made the right choice. After Graduation Reilly went on to compete for “The Best, Young International Chef” in Istanbul Turkey. He was the first American and the youngest chef ever to win.
