Chef’s Table is the Netflix documentary series from David Gelb, who also brought us the incredible, Jiro Dreams of Sushi. Using the same cinematic artistry, this series tells the story of six of the best chefs in the world. Each episode is devoted to sharing a singular story of an inspiring individual: Massimo Bottura (Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy), Dan Barber (Blue Hill Restaurant at Stone Barns and in New York City, USA), Magnus Nilsson (Fäviken in Järpen Sweden), Francis Mallmann (El Restaurante Patagonia Sur in Buenos Aires, Argentina), Niki Nakayama (N/Naka Restaurant in Los Angeles, CA, USA), and Ben Shewry (Attica Restaurant in Melbourne, Australia).
These guys and gal are truly inspiring, the director has proven himself masterful, the subject matter is delicious. Woven throughout is the message of sustainability, community, and passionate love for the earth. There’s a lot here to love.
