…you need to watch Chef’s Table on Netflix.
I love cooking shows, but no, that’s not the reason why I’m telling you to watch Chef’s Table. Every episode is so beautifully done, the soundtrack fits so perfectly to the tone of each one and every single chef’s story is so fascinating.
We are invited into the minds and life stories of ordinary people who have become extraordinary. They each had to face their own struggles and limitations, but their ambitions and ability to overcome challenges and be the masters of their own destiny have led them to achieve remarkable success. Regardless of where they came from. It’s truly beautiful and inspirational.
I don’t think I can pick a favorite, but I’d suggest you watch the episode on Ivan Orkin – his story is so fantastic; he’s reinvented himself countless times, isn’t afraid to take risks, has overcome some very difficult times and most importantly: he’s an authority on ramen. And who can resist ramen?
