David Chang is to star in a new food show to air on Netflix, which will see him travelling the world exploring the joys of comfort food.
Called Ugly Delicious, the show launches on 23 February and also features Lucky Peach co-founder Peter Meehan. It’s Chang’s first show since season one of The Mind of a Chef back in 2012.
Chang will be hanging and eating with chefs, writers, artists and entertainers at their favourite spots to chat authenticity in food and how it can bridge divides. “Food is something we all have in common. It’s an essential part of who we are and how we create connections across cultures,” says Chang.
Spread across eight episodes the show will feature cameos from the likes of chefs René Redzepi and Roy Choi, and food writer Ruth Reichl, according to Grub Street.
Watch a clip below. Expect “strong opinions and honest conversations about food.”
