Exclusive: Here Are All the Chefs in 'Chef's Table: Pastry'
A new season of Chef’s Table will debut on Netflix this April, this time focusing on four of the best pastry chefs in the world. Food & Wine got an exclusive look at the series, and judging from the trailer, Chef's Table: Pastry will prove to be just as much of a celebration of food and the people who are devoted to perfecting it as the previous three series (one of which focused exclusively on French chefs).
This season—which looks much more joyful, playful, and colorful than previous seasons—celebrates dessert—from gelato and cookies to more experimental pastries—as an art form. The four featured chefs built their reputation on launching dessert trends that took over the world, both innovating on and perfecting classic desserts, and perhaps most importantly, proving that dinner’s last course can be just as much of a culinary masterpiece as the rest of the meal.
Here are the four chefs you can expect to see on the new season:
Will Goldfarb – Room 4 Dessert (Bali)
Goldfarb is the head chef at this dessert-only restaurant in Ubud, Bali. He also manages the pastry program at Ku De Ta restaurant in Seminyak. He was named one of the 10 Best Pastry Chefs by Pastry Art and Design and he's been a James Beard Award nominee for the Best Pastry Chef in America.
Corrado Assenza - Caffé Sicilia Noto (Sicily)
Assenza is known for handcrafting some of the best gelato in the world at his shop in Sicily, which attracts long lines of customers who visit from around the world all summer long.
Jordi Roca - El Celler de Can Roca (Spain)
Roca helps run El Celler de Can Roca with his two brothers, Josep and Joan. In 2017, it was named the third best restaurant in the world, and in 2014, the chef won the award for the World's Best Pastry Chef from Restaurant magazine.
Christina Tosi – Milk Bar (New York City)
From her days starting out selling soft serve next door to Momofuku Ssam Bar, Tosi has become a household name, legendary for her compost cookies, cereal milk ice cream, and "crack pie."
