Iron Chef Bagels
In this week's episode Morimoto's sous chef made bagels. It appeared that he mixed the dough and immediately formed, boiled and baked. I don't think there is any trickery involved on this show with time shifting and the like. The bagels could have been rested or allowed to rise briefly but I believe the format of the show required them to be made in less than an hour.
The judges proclaimed them good.
