When the first season of Chef’s Table debuted in 2015, it changed both food media and the way people consume food media. Director David Gelb’s slow-motion shots and lifting classical music simply took things to another level for fine-dining restaurants and chefs. Now, the same attention is coming to street food with a show called, in as straightforward a name as possible, Street Food.
The show is produced by Gelb and his production company, Supper Club, and set to release on Netflix on April 26.
“From the creators of Chef’s Table, Street Food takes viewers to some of the world’s most vibrant cities to explore the rich culture of street food all over the globe,” Brian McGinn, a Chef’s Table producer, shared on Twitter. “Season one explores nine countries across Asia, from the hawker stalls of Singapore to the food carts of India. Each episode highlights the stories of perseverance and culture that bring life to each country’s cuisines.”
Other than that, not much is known about the new series, including who will be featured. A promotional photo Netflix provided to Eater, however, does show Thai chef Jay Fai. Fai runs the first Bangkok street cart to get a Michelin star. Whoever ends up getting featured, you can count on getting a gorgeous look at some of the best street food across Asia.
