Meet the Pitmasters in Netflix's New 'Chef's Table: BBQ'
A season focusing solely on the art of barbecue debuts this September.
While we're limited in our ability to travel to culinary destinations or dine-in at our favorite restaurants, it's as good a time as any to drool over some seriously satiating food TV. Thankfully, one of the most breathtaking docuseries about chefs is coming back with a focus on all things meat and fire; Chef's Table: BBQ hits Netflix next month.
The four-episode season (unofficially season 7) attempts to span the breadth of what barbecue means in the American South, as well as in Central America and beyond. Episodes will focus on a quartet of chefs mastering different disciplines in the category, from modern experimentation to ancient techniques.
Take a look at the full trailer below:
Here's a breakdown of the chefs featured in each episode of Chef's Table: BBQ:
Episode 1: Tootsie Tomanetz from Snow's BBQ in Lexington, Texas, is an 85-year-old legend who has been cooking for over five decades, feeling out the temperature of her pits with her hands instead of a thermometer.
Episode 2: Lennox Hastie of Firedoor in Sydney, Australia, cooks everything from leafy lettuce to pastries and more using coals and open flame along with skills he picked up from working at the acclaimed Asador Etxebarri in Spain's Basque Country.
Episode 4: Rosalia Chay Chuc of Yaxunah, Mexico, is a master of the pork dish cochinita pibil, keeping millenium-old Mayan cooking traditions alive and harkening back to the very origins of pit barbecue.
Chef's Table: BBQ begins streaming Sept. 2 on Netflix.
