Netflix Brings More Helpings of Food-Centric Content to the Table
I’ll take any opportunities I can get for horrible puns, and Netflix announcing new and returning series during its FYSEE Food Day at Raleigh Studios provides plenty. On the menu is a new series from Jon Favreau and Roy Choi called The Chef Show, the seventh and eighth volumes of Netflix’s longest-running documentary series, Chef’s Table, and new episodes of Somebody Feed Phil, featuring Phil Rosenthal. (Our very own Dan Hart rather enjoyed that last one.)
Below we have some information on all of these shows, as well as the trailer for Chef’s Show, which should satisfy the greedy among you. And be sure to return to us for seconds when the shows air; as ever, we’ll have coverage of everything that springs up on the platform.
The Chef Show
Cooking is a journey. And making a meal is about more than just food. It’s about appreciating friends, family and tradition. An opportunity to come together. To learn, to share and to celebrate different flavors, cultures and people. In The Chef Show actor/director Jon Favreau and award-winning Chef Roy Choi reunite after their critically acclaimed film Chef to embark on a new adventure. The two friends experiment with their favorite recipes and techniques, baking, cooking, exploring and collaborating with some of the biggest names in the entertainment and culinary world. From sharing a meal with the Avengers cast in Atlanta, to smoking brisket in Texas with world-renowned pitmaster Aaron Franklin, to honoring the legendary food critic Jonathan Gold in Los Angeles – Favreau and Choi embrace their passion for food, but more importantly their love for bringing people together over a delicious meal.
The long-running, Emmy-nominated documentary series Chef’s Table will return with two new seasons. Currently in its sixth season, the critically-acclaimed series follows celebrated chefs from around the globe as they pave their own path in the culinary world. The new volumes will bring to light the rich history, passion and drive of eight remarkable food visionaries. Chef’s Table is created by David Gelb and produced by Supper Club and Boardwalk Pictures. For Supper Club, executive producers are David Gelb and Brian McGinn; for Boardwalk Pictures, executive producer is Andrew Fried and co-executive producer is Dane Lillegard.
