Netflix has announced that they will be serving three new ‘courses’ of Chef’s Table.
The first six episodes, Season 2, will be available on the streaming service from the 27th of May and will feature international chefs Alex Atala, Ana Ros, Dominique Crenn, Enrique Olvera, Gagan Anand and Grant Achatz.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with David Gelb and his team. 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. David’s unique vision takes viewers around the world experiencing the secret richness of street food to the most celebrated kitchens in the world“, said Lisa Nishimura, Netflix Vice President of Original Documentary Programming.
The new seasons of Chef’s Table will feature a variety of chefs from all around the world and delve into what inspires them and how that shapes their cooking.
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,” adds creator David Gelb. “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!”
Later this year Season 3 will focus solely on the world’s most renowned French chefs including Alain Passard, Michel Troisgros, Adeline Grattard and Alexandre Couillon.
Viewers will have to wait til 2017 for Season 4 though, which is set to focus on Ivan Orkin, Jeong Kwan, Nancy Silverton, Tim Raue, Virgilio Martinez and Vladimir Mukhin.
A Boardwalk Pictures production, Chef’s Table is created, executive produced and directed by Gelb. Clay Jeter, Andrew Fried and Brian McGinn return as directors, with Abigail Fuller directing as well. Fried and McGinn are executive producers with Dane Lillegard as Co-Executive Producer for Boardwalk Pictures.
