Mark Tarbell on Iron Chef!

Paul Markow

Mark Tarbell gets some sweet airtime this September.

Last fall, the gregarious Mark Tarbell -- chef-owner of fave Phoenix eatery Tarbell's -- traveled to New York to appear on The Food Network's Iron Chef America. He was joined by chef de cuisine Paul Steele and operating partner Jim Gallen.

All the details about the battle in Kitchen Stadium are top secret, from the theme ingredient, to the results of the showdown with an as-yet-unnamed Iron Chef.

But now, at least, we have one crucial tidbit of info: The episode is scheduled to air on September 16.
