Michelle Obama's vegetable garden is about to become a culinary combat zone.

The Food Network announced that an episode of "Iron Chef America" will be taped at the White House kitchen featuring Mario Batali, Bobby Flay and Emeril Lagasse.

The three chefs, joined by White House chef Cristeta Comerford, and will be greeted by the first lady and permitted to use anything found in the garden to help create their meals. That sounds like a challenge that even Mario, Bobby and Emeril may have to contemplate for awhile.

The competition will then go back to the network's Kitchen Stadium in New York, where Flay and Comerford will face-off against Batali and Lagasse to produce five dishes showcasing the ingredients.
