The brand new season of Mind of a Chef is almost upon us. Season five of the James Beard and Emmy award–winning PBS show, which has previously featured the likes of April Bloomfield, Magnus Nilsson and David Chang, will focus on LA-based chef Ludo Lefebvre. (There will be a series of dinners in the chef's honour featuring some of the world's best chefs at his Trois Mec restaurant in October – find out more here and how to get tickets).
Eggs and Legends
As well as eight new episodes featuring Lefebvre, including a trip to Paris and around the chef’s favourite LA haunts (he has a particular penchant for fried chicken), season five also includes six compilation episodes dedicated to particular ingredients, techniques and culinary legends garnered from the first four seasons of Mind of a Chef – watch a preview of the 'Eggs' episode below, as well as Lefebvre making a classic omelette with his son Luca (watch David Kinch doing the same in a previous episode), and the trailer for season five.
Preview four more episodes here – read about each episode and discover air times (episode one goes out on 1 October). We’re looking forward to season five immensely, how about you? Who else would you like to see feature on the show? Let us know over on our Facebook page.
