Good evening everyone,
today I have another quick recommendation for you.
Do you own a Netflix account and love food? You maybe loved my recommendation post for Jiro dreams of sushi? Then this might be the right documentary for you.
Chef’s Table goes inside the lives and kitchens of six of the world’s most renowned international chefs. Each episode focuses on a single chef and their unique look at their lives, talents and passion from their piece of culinary heaven.
Premiere: April 26, 2015
Seasons: 1 season, 6 ep.
Runtime: 41-54 min. each
I usually don’t like those fancy menus where it seems to be more about the presentation of the food then the taste, but I gotta say this documentary got me anyways. I advise you to NOT watch this when you are hungry ;)
The posters already show what you can expect. mouth-watering courses with very pretty presentation.
I really liked how they talked about the background stories of the chef’s and how they mixed the first season with chef’s from different countries all over the world.
Episode 1: Massimo Bottura (Italy)
Epsiode 2: Dan Barber (New York)
Episode 3: Francis Mallmann (Argentina)
Episode 4: Niki Nakayama (Los Angeles)
Episode 5: Ben Shewry (Australia)
Episode 6: Magnus Nilsson (Sweden)
I personally can not wait for another season, which I hope they will be doing.
From season one episode 4 with Niki Nakayama was my favorite. I really love food and it was very interesting for me to see her interpretation of the traditional kaiseki (multi course menu).
Did you already see this documentary? If so what was your favorite episode?
