On Saturday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m., Mairinger will be the challenger on Iron Chef America's Battle Oktoberfest episode. The week following the show, the chef will be featuring dishes from the show at BierBeisl. Then on Oct. 22 at 9:30 p.m., Mairinger will make an appearance on Ilan Hall's new show Knife Fight, which airs on the newly launched Esquire Channel.
This television push doesn't really come as much of a surprise. A little while back, Mairinger released a couple of cooking videos, which looked very much like bait for television executives. So, if all goes as planned, we can expect to be seeing more of Mairinger on the small screen.
