Watch the Trailer for Netflix’s ‘Chef’s Table’ Season 6

The new season of David Gelb’s award-winning culinary documentary series Chef’s Table shines the spotlight on four culinary visionaries whose work inspires food-lovers around the world. In typically cinematic fashion, a new trailer for Season 6 hints at the heaviness of these four chefs’ journeys through the culinary world.

“I was representing the cuisine in a culture — that’s an enormous amount of pressure,” says Sean Brock, the creator of the Husk restaurants. “It nearly killed me — it literally almost killed me.” Brock got sober a few years ago, and, in a surprising move, left the acclaimed South Carolina-based restaurant group that he helped build to work on a new, as-yet-unopened Appalachian-inspired restaurant in Nashville.

“In India, when a girl is born, it’s that moment of darkness in a family,” says Asma Khan, the chef/proprietor of Darjeeling Express, a London restaurant staffed entirely by women. “My mother cried at my birth — I can’t wipe those tears. But what I can do is bring pride into my mother’s eyes.” Khan was born into a royal family in Aligarh, India, and originally launched her restaurant as an informal supper club. She donates proceeds from her restaurant to a foundation in India that helps support second daughters.

“I was soaking in all that heritage and all that knowledge, and there’s a sadness that comes with that, but it’s also a great sense of pride,” says Mashama Bailey, the chef behind The Grey in Savannah, Georgia. “You look at the beauty of survival, you realize how resilient your culture is.” Bailey’s restaurant is located inside an old Greyhound bus station where the waiting areas and bathrooms were segregated. Her menu draws influence from Southern, African, and New American cuisines. In his “restaurant of the year” feature on The Grey from 2017 Bill Addison wrote, “The Grey’s achievements now match its stratospheric ambitions, and that warrants celebration.”
