Netflix Opens Window on Chefs’ Souls
Arguably, there isn’t room for even one more food show on TV. Not one more manufactured competition, restaurant makeover or road trip. But what about a show that provides a window into the unique minds – and souls – of some of the world’s top chefs? Would you watch that?
If so, Chef's Table is for you. Premiering April 26 on Netflix, the new series is from David Gelb, who directed Jiro Dreams of Sushi, one of the best movies about food. Ever.
Each episode focuses on a single chef, with a look at their unique lives, talents, passions and their piece of culinary heaven.
Season 1 goes inside the kitchens of six of the world’s most renowned international chefs, including Ben Shewry (Attica Restaurant in Melbourne, Australia), Magnus Nilsson (Fäviken in Järpen, Sweden), Francis Mallmann (El Restaurante Patagonia Sur in Buenos Aires, Argentina), Niki Nakayama (N/Naka Restaurant in Los Angeles), Dan Barber (Blue Hill Restaurant at Stone Barns in New York City) and Massimo Bottura (Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy).
