At the end of last year we got rid of cable–one of the best decisions, in my opinion, that we’ve ever made. Not only did we significantly reduce one of our bills (always a plus), we’re forced to actively choose what we want to watch, as opposed to plopping down on the couch and mindlessly channel surfing. We rely on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime for our TV-viewing options, and I like to think that, in addition to our favorites, we’ve also discovered some new programs that we wouldn’t normally watch.
One of the things we watched and loved recently was Chef’s Table, a documentary series from the brains behind the food doc Jiro Dreams of Sushi (which I also recently watched and loved). Each hour-long episode–there are six total–profiles a different chef, and while they’re shot in a similar style, each chef’s personality, background and cooking style are wildly different, so no episode feels the same. Even better: the cinematography is absolutely beautiful, but the chefs’ stories are equally and wonderfully compelling. Highly recommend. Here’s the trailer, if you’d like to see.
