Netflix serves up three more seasons of Chef’s Table

Netflix will be serving three more seasons of Chef’s Table. The streaming giant’s first documentary series tantalised tastebuds in 2014 with its portrait of some of the world’s top chefs, crafting a mouthwatering combination of human interest and food porn. Now, Netflix has ordered another three helpings.
The next course of six episodes will land on Friday 27th May, followed by a shorter Season 3 later this year, which will be dedicated to four of the world’s most renowned French chefs. A third course, again dishing up six culinary experts, will arrive in early 2017.
“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,” comments director and series creator David Gelb, who exec produces the show alongside returning directors Andrew Fried and Brian McGinn and Dane Lillegard as Co-Executive Producer for Boardwalk Pictures. (Clay Jeter and Abigail Fuller will also be on directing duties for Season 2.)
“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. David’s unique vision takes viewers around the world experiencing the secret richness of street food to the most celebrated kitchens in the world,” adds Lisa Nishimura, Netflix Vice President of Original Documentary Programming.
