Burnt Toast Podcast

A Seat at Netflix Docu-Series Chef's Table

May  5, 2016

In today's episode of Burnt Toast, I talk to director David Gelb about what's just off camera. That is, how they select chefs for the popular Netflix series Chef's Table, the challenges they face (in filming and otherwise), and how his first documentary, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, set the scene creatively for his latest work.

The second season will be out on Netflix on May 27th. Play the episode above, find it on iTunes, or listen to it using your favorite podcatcher. (Don't have one yet? We're fans of Stitcher.)

I have a thing for most foods topped with a fried egg, a strange disdain for overly soupy tomato sauce, and I can never make it home without ripping off the end of a newly-bought baguette. I like spoons very much.

One awesome podcast! Loved every minute of it. PS: "Food romance" will forever be my soft spot <3

We are so excited for more "food romance" from the Chef's Table team and the list of chefs for Season 2 is inspiring! Thanks for the great interview, Kenzi.
