Chef's Table

"If you have success, if you live a incredible moment of happiness, the happiness is much, much more deep and big, if you share with others and you get to the point together, is like the happiness and the feeling is exploding. It's double. This is the point."  Massimo Bottura

Chef's Table is an American documentary series released on Netflix. It follows six renowned chefs around the world and shares their incredible journey of food and passion for life. I finally started watching it today, because I was ready to be blown away by food. I truly appreciate the art of food. Great food has the ability to elevate and inspire. These beautiful food documentaries have only fueled my love for food even more. Chef's Table captures the beauty and awe of innovative food. It is filmed so beautifully and accompanied by classical music. I'm filled with so much emotion.

I love seeing these radical food ideas, but the heart of the story lies in the journey of the chef. The story behind their success, their humble beginnings and the obstacles and hurdles they had to overcome in order to become a renowned figure in their industry. To achieve success requires sacrifice and tireless hard work. There is so much risk and courage it takes to make a name for yourself. I am so inspired by these people. I look forward to documenting each episode. Dinner is served!
