Chef’s Table is one of my favorite documentary series. It gets to the core of the chefs behind some of the top restaurants around the world. The documentary series created a new spin off focusing on BBQ around the world. BBQ looks different in different parts of the world, but there is a common feature of fire. The people who master this type of cooking are often given the title of Pit-Master instead of Chef as they have a skill set that a Chef can’t match. Pit-Masters have an understanding of fire and food.
Before COVID, the world ran at the speed of a million miles per hour. Sometimes, it was hard to imagine spending time taking hours to make and prep a meal. I know had more than a few days like that. However, our relationship with meals shouldn’t be a burden. We should be able to enjoy them without spending hours in the kitchen. We could all use those 5 minutes spent less cooking on something we would rather be doing. Things such as spending time with our loved ones. I think that is why I really like Nadiya’s Time to Eat on Netflix.
Food is not meant to be boring? Recipes and taste change from the drab forms of feasts from former years. They evolved into the things we know and love today. The evolution of culinary cuisine requires one to be crazy and the food to be delicious. Netflix decided to take this concept and make a cooking show around it.
