Netflix has released a lot of great food programs over the last few years, but none have been as singularly focused on the act of cooking as “The Chef Show,” a new series starring Kogi empire builder Roy Choi and actor/writer/director Jon Favreau.
In each episode, you see these two friends work through every step of their favorite recipes, with running commentary from Choi about the techniques involved.
Although the series includes cameos from an array of famous people — Gwyneth Paltrow, Robert Downey Jr., Tom Holland, David Chang— the most memorable moments are found in these kitchen scenes, where Choi and Favreau bring dishes like kimchi fried rice and pasta aglio e olio to life.
“The Chef Show” is available on Netflix.
