Netflix’s Emmy-nominated “Chef’s Table” returns this spring, with a look inside the world of internationally recognized pastry chefs. Created by “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” director David Gelb, “Chef’s Table: Pastry” follows four different chefs and their unique specialties. In an eye-popping first trailer, the new spinoff promises colorful confections as mind-blowing as they are mouth-watering. If the fervor for “The Great British Baking Show” is any indication, Netflix is counting on audiences’ hunger for sweets. (And the characters who make them).
Per the official description: “‘Chef’s Table: Pastry’ goes inside the lives and kitchens of the world’s most renowned international pastry chefs. Each episode of the four-part series focuses on a single chef and takes a unique look at their life, talent, and passion, from their piece of culinary heaven. Dessert is front and center as viewers learn the history behind Christina Tosi’s wildly popular and accessible ‘Crack Pie;’ are treated to luxurious Italian gelato with Corrado Assenza; take in the essence of a tropical paradise with Will Goldfarb; and gain inspiration from Jordi Roca’s whimsical masterpieces.”
The four chefs seem engagingly flamboyant, steeped in knowledge and love for their craft. At least one receives this glowing description from a friend: “For him, flavors are like colors, and he wants to paint with the whole box.”
“Chef’s Table: Pastry” hits Netflix on April 13. Check out the trailer below.
