Staff Reporter | On 03, Sep 2019
Roy Choi and Jon Favreau are getting back in the kitchen this September to cook up another batch of The Chef Show, and a Netflix has dished up a trailer to tease the mouth-watering treats in store.
The Jungle Book director and the street food veteran first collaborated in 2014 on feel-good movie Chef. Earlier this year, the duo teamed up again for a second course, with a slight twist. The Chef Show sees them explore culinary delights away from the silver screen, as they experiment with recipes and techniques, from baking and cooking to simply exploring the culinary world. From sharing a meal with the Avengers cast in Atlanta to smoking brisket in Texas, Season 1 starred guests such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Bill Burr, Robert Downey Jr, Robert Rodriguez and David Chang.
“This low-key kitchen hang-out with two old friends is a hugely fun foodie’s dream,” we wrote in our review of Season 1.
Volume 2 premieres on 13th September. Here’s the trailer:
The Chef Show is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.

20th May 2019
Jon Favreau is serving up a new Chef series at Netflix.
The Jungle Book director struck a magic recipe in 2014 when he concocted the feel-good movie about a disillusioned chef who quits the restaurant biz to run a food truck with his son. Real life street food veteran Roy Choi oversaw the menus for the film, earning as much for the mouth-watering food in display as Favreau’s writing and direction.
Now, the duo are teaming up again for a second course, with a slight twist. The Chef Show sees them explore culinary delights away from the silver screen, as they experiment with recipes and techniques, from baking and cooking to simply exploring the culinary world. From sharing a meal with the Avengers cast in Atlanta to smoking brisket in Texas, the documentary series will be sprinkled with guests such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Bill Burr, Robert Downey Jr, Andrew Rea, Evan Kleiman, Jazz Singsanong, Robert Rodriguez and David Chang.
“During the production of Chef, I developed a much deeper understanding of the ways in which we express our emotions, share our cultures, and seek meaningful connections through the act of cooking and eating,” says Favreau. “I am so nostalgic about that time and those experiences — this series gives me the perfect opportunity to get back in the kitchen and create some new memories.”
“I’ve always wanted a straight up cooking show since I was a child,” adds Choi. “ I grew up on Julia Child, Paul Prudhomme, Sara Moulton, and obviously Emeril’s first show had a huge impact on my life. There is something timeless and beautiful about cooking straight to camera. The only snafu was, I’m not a natural born entertainer so doing it alone was always out of the question! But then I met Jon and we built such an amazing friendship over the movie, Chef. We both kinda didn’t want it to end. And through this friendship I found my cooking soulmate and a child’s dream is now a reality. Julia and Jacques meet Jon and Roy!”
Favreau. Choi and Annie Johnson exec produce the project, which lands all at once on Friday 7th June. Here’s the trailer:
