This US docu-series delves deep into the history, childhood, and culture of world-renowned chefs. From monks in the mountains to tough Russian chefs, every meal has a story involving the experiences & sometimes heartbreaking stories that yielded such passion and expertise. It’s like each episode is a great novel.
For the curious foodies out there, Ugly Delicious will have you glued to your screen. Top chef, David Chang, leads viewers on a cross-cultural journey trying different foods, like Japanese pizza, and uncovers the stories behind these dishes and what helped shape them. David delves into the cultural, social & political impact of places and their histories, which have shaped the food produced. You’re sure to learn something new in each episode!
Crazy Delicious, not to be confused with the above Ugly Delicious, is a light-hearted cooking competition where amateur chefs compete to reinvent classics, in the wildest ways they can, to win the ‘Golden Apple’. Watching this is like taking a trip into a fairytale land, so it’s a great choice if the kids are around!
This one is for those of you with a sweet tooth! This high intensity, high sugar content, competition is all about dessert. Contestants compete against the clock, and each other, to bake the most show-stopping sweet treats. Be prepared to have some serious sugar cravings after watching this.
We may not be able to travel as freely anymore, but we can still learn about different food cultures! Currently, there are two Street Food series, one focusing on street food across Latin America and the other across Asia. Go on a foodie adventure from your couch, and experience some of the world’s best street food! (We’re waiting for them to do one in the Middle East so Dubai’s, and the rest of the UAE’s, food scene can be featured).
Somebody Feed Phil
