So Netflix has a new series about chefs and it is a bit like Mind of a Chef but a bit different. In David Gleb’s series each episode focuses on a different chef and tries summarize who they are in an hour. The episode seems to look at what made them a chef and how they got to where they are today. They are sort of like Jiro Dreams of Sushi but shorter and some have said are lacking. It’s a fun show to watch with the food porn but it doesn’t go as far as something like Mind of a Chef where you really get to know the chefs involved and perhaps learn a recipe as well.
Hopefully this is the only the beginning of Chef’s table and they look at other chef around the world in more seasons like Alice Waters or Jose Andres. If you are a foodie this is a must watch and it’s mostly enjoyable and gives you a chance to see some wonderful dishes that you might not get a chance to eat in your lifetime like Massimo Bottura’s dishes in Italy. It is a fun and short documentary to watch but the only problem that can happen is that you get hungry watching some of these interesting dishes being made and presented.
