Netflix is about to make your weekend even more appetizing. This week the second season of Netflix‘s ode to everything delicious, Chef’s Table, premieres. If you need cooking inspiration for your weekend grill out, this is it.
Chef’s Table is a six part docu-series that follows a handful of world-renowned culinary artists as they explain their art, technique, and passion for food. The series is so successfully, it has already been renewed for four seasons. While Season Two will follow much of the same format as Season One, with each episode following a different highly-acclaimed chef from different culinary backgrounds, Season Three, which will be released sometime late this year, will focus specifically on French chefs. Though this is a series that overtly praises food, Chef’s Table is ultimately a show about passion. It’s inspiring to see these artists take something so mundane — food — and make it enchanting.
To celebrate the upcoming release of Season Two, we’ve compiled a list of the best food moments from the series so far. Season One followed chefs Massimo Bottura (Italy), Dan Barber (USA, NYC), Francis Mallmann (Argentina), Niki Nakayama (USA, Los ANgeles), Ben Shewry (Australia), and Magnus Nilsson (Sweden). Consider this your Chef’s Table cheat sheet or your excuse to take an early lunch.
Chef’s Table Season Two premieres Friday, May 27 on Netflix.
