In Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat chef Samin Nosrat’s best-selling book of the same name, comes to life. The award-winning chef travels from Italy to Japan, and then to Yucatan demonstrating how these four elements: salt, fat, acid, and heat are the key to creating the perfect dish.

2. Street Food

Season 1 of Street Food explores the street food scene in Asia. This show sets out to prove that some of the best food in a country isn’t found in a fancy restaurant, but instead at a cart on the street. My favorite episode was in Thailand which highlighted a street vendor who won a James Beard award.

3. Food On The Go

Food on the Go explores the migration of Italian food to America. What I found fascinating is that many of the dishes we associate today with Italian food are actually a mutation of dishes created by Italian Americans.

4. Chef’s Table

Chef’s Table takes us from Russia to Bali, visiting chefs all over the globe. I mentioned here how I’m sort of fangirl for chefs. So, I really enjoyed hearing the chef’s story. This series focuses on how each chef’s upbringing and culture shape their food. My favorite episode was with chef Mashama Bailey in Savanah, Georgia who put a spin on Southern cuisine. I also liked the episodes with chef Christine Martinez who has been a voice for undocumented immigrants and Will Goldfab who left his bustling career as a pastry chef in New York for a different life in Bali.

In Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner a wanderlust chef ventures the world with a different celebrity in each episode and food is part of the adventure. Guests include Christy Tiegen, Lena Waithe, and Kate Mckinnon. The guest and chef discuss food, culture, and race with humor. Markesha has been added to my bucket list after watching this show.

In Restaurant on the Edge, a chef, an interior designer, and restaurateur travel abroad to help revive restaurants and keep them from going under (or over the edge). My favorite was the St. Lucia episode because of how it showcased the island, the food, and the people there. The head chef at the restaurant in the St. Lucia episode talked so passionately about his mother and the recipes she passed down to him.
