Netflix has ordered up more of David Gelb’s Chef’s Table. The streaming service says six new episodes will premiere on Friday, May 27 followed by four special episodes later in the year featuring four of the world’s most renowned French chefs. The third installment will feature another six chefs for release in early 2017.
“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.
Seasons 2, 3 and 4 will showcase chefs from around the world talking about what inspires them and how it translates into their individual styles.
“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 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!”
