Jr. Iron Chef is an after school program that is organized by Lucy. Like all the other after school programs she organizes, Iron Chef is a complete success. Usually, Iron Chef is meant for middle school but Lucy made Jr. Iron Chef for Dover School. There is the head chef, Mike, who likes to have fun but is a terrific chef. The kids learn to make spicy spinach balls and other delicious treats that are sold or eaten by the school.
