For two consecutive seasons which featured 12 top chefs from around the world, France, the centre of the culinary world was ignored.
But that seems to have been a deliberate decision by the producer who have now made amends by launching a whole season focusing on France.
The highly successful documentary series featuring top chefs from around the world, will place the focus on France in its third season which launches on Friday 2 September.
The chefs that will feature in the third season of Chef’s Table are Alain Passard of L’Arpege and Michel Troisgros of Maison Troisgros. Both chefs need no introduction and have been mentors to many of today’s rising stars with their approach to cuisine.
The other two chefs are Adeline Grattard of Yam’Tcha and Alexandre Couillon of La Marine.
The filmmakers embark on a personal look into the daily lives of these chefs from their diverse backgrounds to the evolution and craft of their chosen cuisine as well as their quests for sensory perfection. The episodes will showcase the crème de la crème of French chefs; talking about what inspires them and how it translates into their individual styles.
The series was created, executive produced and directed by David Gelb. Clay Jeter, Andrew Fried and Brian McGinn return as directors with Abigail Fuller directing as well. Fried and McGinn are executive producers.
Seasons 1 & 2 of Chef’s Table have featured chefs like Massimo Bottura, Francis Mallmann, Grant Achatz, Alex Atala, Dominique Crenn and Gaggan Anand among others.
A fourth series is scheduled for 2017 but the launch date has not yet been announced.
