The last we saw anything related to Chef’s Table was in 2020 when we watched Chef’s Table: BBQ, the 2nd spin-off to the main series. A year before that, we saw the 6th season of the Netflix documentary about chefs from all around the world. However, it’s been more than 3 years since then, and we still don’t have Chef’s Table Season 7. It makes sense for the series to take a little break since most productions did during the covid-19 pandemic, but many shows have come back after the pandemic ended. Is the show canceled, and that is why we’re not getting any new episodes? Here is everything we know about Chef’s Table Season 7.
Chef’s Table Season 7 Release Date
Strangely, only a month after the release of Season 6, the docu-series was renewed not only for Season 7 but also Season 8. However, it seems that the creator David Gelb is busy with other shows at the moment, principally Street Food (2019- ), which had 3 volumes: Street Food: Asia (2019), Latin America (2020), and USA (2022). Now, a 4th spin-off called Chef’s Table: Pizza, following Pastry (2018) and BBQ (2020) is about to come out on Netflix on September 7.
It seems the creator and the producers focus on making spin-offs or other shows inspired by Chef’s Table rather than making another season for the original show. This is proven since no official news has come out about Chef’s Table Season 7 since the renewal confirmations. Also, Netflix has kept its mouth shut about this series, and no one knows when the new season will arrive.
We think since 2022 already saw a new volume of the Street Food series and another spin-off, we won’t be able to see Season 7 this year. Our guess is late 2023, at the earliest.
What is the best Chef’s Table episode?
It is really challenging to decide which episode is the best Chef’s Table episode since there are far too many talented chefs and cooks in this docu-series. However, we were able to come up with a list of the best episodes, chosen per the chef’s talent and life story. Let’s start with the best episode of the series, which we believe is from Season 3: the 1st episode of the season starring Jeong Kwan, who is a Buddhist nun and a chef of Korean cuisine. The incredible thing about Kwan is that she does not have culinary training and does not own a restaurant. She cooks for her fellow nuns and monks and sometimes for visitors.
Here is the rest of the list:
2. Grant Achatz: Season 2 Episode 1, from Chicago, the United States.
3. Christina Martinez: Season 5 Episode 1, from Philadelphia, the United States.
4. Massimo Bottura: Season 1 Episode 1, from Modena, Italy.
5. Alex Atala: Season 2 Episode 2, from Sao Paulo, Brazil.
6. Virgilio Martinez: Season 3 Episode 6, from Lima, Peru.
7. Gaggan Anand: Season 2 Episode 6, from Bangkok, Thailand.
8. Musa Dağdeviren: Season 5 Episode 2, from Istanbul, Turkey.
9. Ivan Orkin: Season 3 Episode 4, from New York City, the United States.
10. Magnus Nilsson: Season 1 Episode 6, from Jarpen, Sweden.
Where is Chef’s Table filmed?
