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.
