Imagine it: Your father’s a professional chef. Each day, you could eat delicious food made by someone who knows how something will taste before you even taste it. What’s more, you’re the one who gets to introduce him to the lower-quality life of fast food and sugary cereals.

For Jet Bent-Lee, he doesn’t have to imagine it. It’s what he does with his father, Susur Lee, every time they upload a video to Iron Chef Dad.

You just might recognize the name, Susur Lee. He was one of the judges on MasterChef Asia. He also appeared as a contestant in the second season of Top Chef: Masters. And he was one of the Iron Chefs on Iron Chef Canada.

And on Iron Chef Dad, he’s teaming up with his son and face some of the biggest challenges of his culinary life: In some videos, Susur must take TV dinners or military-style MREs (“Meal, Ready-to-Eat”) and turn them into a gourmet dish. In others, Susur ranks fast food on a tier list and reacts to food-centric short videos.

And, sometimes, Susur will simply show us how to make some tasty treats.


Susur and Jet have good chemistry on camera, and it’s evident that father and son love each other deeply. They enjoy discussing food, with Susur often providing guidance to Jet on why certain methods or ingredients are used over others.

Additionally, though Susur is a professional chef and doesn’t have much experience with lower-brow culinary offerings such as fast food, he often provides compliments on what he thinks each chain did right. Similarly, Susur will explain what he likes about another culture’s cuisine, and even if he doesn’t personally like something, he’ll accept the validity of someone enjoying it.


The f-word is partially censored. Other swears, including the s-word, “d–n,” “b–ch” and “h—” are often heard in their entirety. God’s name is used in vain occasionally. In one reaction video to Masterchef, Gordon Ramsay references masturbation.


It’s fun to watch Jet and Susur bond over food and for Jet to learn some culinary skills at the same time. Perhaps Iron Chef Dad will encourage more families to get together to make food—regardless of how well it turns out. But that’s only if viewers can digest the occasional swearing present on the channel.

Kennedy Unthank studied journalism at the University of Missouri. He knew he wanted to write for a living when he won a contest for “best fantasy story” while in the 4th grade. What he didn’t know at the time, however, was that he was the only person to submit a story. Regardless, the seed was planted. Kennedy collects and plays board games in his free time, and he loves to talk about biblical apologetics. He thinks the ending of Lost “wasn’t that bad.”
