Getting away from white tablecloths and Beethoven, the new series by the makers of 'Chef's Table', 'Street Food', will take to the streets in nine Asian countries.
A new subject and format, but you can still expect plenty of hi-res, slo-mo shots of ingredients being tossed in a wok. Just like 'Chef's Table', 'Street Food' will focus on the lives of chefs, this time, the ones who work in hawker stalls across Asia and use it as a prism to uncover a culture.
Chefs Table creator David Gelb is executive producer and is joined by collaborators Brian McGinn, Andrew Fried, and Dane Lillegard.
Street Food will travel to destinations in nine different countries for its first series titled 'Street Food Asia' - Thailand, India, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam.
Featured in this trailer is Jay Fai, owner of the first on-street restaurant in Bangkok to receive a Michelin star. Also featured 100-year-old Mbah Lindu, who serves jackfruit stew in a market in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Wanton noodle legend Master Tang features in the Singapore episode.
