Cora, the “Iron Chef”, has four young sons but she doesn’t cave in to their kiddy demands. Food is always healthy, grilled, and made in skewered versions to appeal to the young ones. Speaking about stick-food, Cora has the following opinion, "The kids love it. We'll do a salmon skewer and Romesco sauce [nuts, garlic, olive oil, and peppers] or lamb with a mint-yogurt sauce and pita bread."
