Dynamic duo Jon Favreau and chef Roy Choi are back in the saddle for the third tranche of popular Netflix Original, The Chef Show. If you’re looking for something to watch this weekend, make time for it.
After the first two hugely popular volumes of season one of The Chef Show proved that Hollywood director and Korean-American chef Roy Choi are about the most entertaining thing in food television at the moment, the third delivery of half-hour episodes has plenty to keep your appetite whetted.
Wolfgang Puck makes an appearance, in a meat-focused episode at his Las Vegas steak House. The episode arrives just after Puck made international news for orchestrating a nearly completely vegan menu at the Oscars.
Las Vegas’ thriving diverse culinary scene is also the setting for Favreau and Choi’s meeting with Sue Miliken and Susan Feniger, for a lesson in Mexican cuisine. Roi opens the kitchen in his own Best Friend restaurant to show us some of his personal favourites.
Sam Raimi gets to grips with sourdough bread and southern biscuits, there’s pizza and Jewish cuisine on the menu too.
Netflix has cleverly chopped the serving into easy to consume, half-hour, bite-size pieces so you can dip in and out. Dip in this weekend.
