“Chef’s Table” premiered in 2015 to solid reviews. Each episode gives viewers a personal look into the life of one chef, who discusses their craft, their struggles and often their inspirations to continue to strive to create the perfect dish.
The filmmakers embark on a personal look into the daily lives of these carefully curated chefs, from their diverse backgrounds to the evolution and craft of their chosen cuisine as well as their quests for sensory perfection.
“With a wide range of disciplines and culinary talent, there was no way we could pack all of the incredible chef stories into one season,” creator David Gelb said. “I’m particularly excited that we will have episodes dedicated to female chefs Ana Ros, Dominique Crenn, Jeong Kwan, Nancy Silverton, and Adeline Grattard — who will be one of four chefs we will highlight in our French season. I am beyond honored to be able to share a more personal look into each of these chefs’ lives with gastronomy experts and global households alike!”
“We couldn’t think of a better way to follow such a visually stunning and engrossing first season than to profile 16 more exceptional chefs and to share their deeply personal stories with our members around the world,” added Lisa Nishimura, Netflix vice president of original documentary programming. “David’s unique vision takes viewers around the world experiencing the secret richness of street food to the most celebrated kitchens in the world.”
