“Yes, Chef!” is probably the most repeated phrase during this series. The Bear tells the story of Carmy, a renowned Chef who takes over the family’s bankrupt restaurant after the death of his brother.
In a “knife-cutting” environment, the establishment is immersed in chaos and disorganisation which becomes the backdrop for another focal point of the series: mental health. Vulnerable, complex, restless. One of the most popular series of 2022 that you cannot miss this year.
In each episode, an opportunity to observe the routine tips and challenges of the best Chefs.
Directed by David Gelb, this series shows the daily life of Chefs like Massimo Bottura, Niki Nakayama, Francis Mallmann, Ben Shewry, and Alex Atala, among many others! There are six seasons where these great culinary names reinvent gourmet cuisine around the globe, with “innovative dishes and irresistible desserts”.
An irresistible way to spend the weekend on your sofa!
Julie & Julia
A film of two parallel stories with different people, times and technology.
At the age of 30 and with a stagnant career, Julie tries to look for a project that awakens her creativity and curiosity. She takes the initiative to create a blog to report the experience of cooking the 524 recipes in the book “Julia Child’s: Mastering the Art of French Cooking”, written by Julia during her visit to Paris.
Both plots are based on real people and stories, played by Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. An inspiring film to remember that it’s never too late to give our lives a new direction.
Roadrunner | Anthony Bourdain
The Roadrunner documentary is a celebration of the life and work of Anthony Bourdain, one of the best-known and renowned Chefs in the world. From French origins to the challenges of adult life, we witness the creation of gastronomic milestones with the best-selling book “Kitchen Confidential” and the revolution in the way cooking was approached on television.
A few years after the tragic and unexpected death of Chef Bourdain, Morgan Neville uses archival footage, letters and testimonials from family and friends to launch Roadrunner.
Relive the intensity of Bourdain’s life and career in 120 minutes.
Eat Pray Love
We end this list of suggestions with a classic: Eat Pray Love.
The protagonist of this film had everything a modern American woman supposedly wants: a husband, a home, and a successful career. However, her dissatisfaction and sadness made her give up everything she had to launch herself on an adventure of self-knowledge around the world.
During his journey, she travels through Italy, India and Bali, where she has the opportunity to experience the most varied gastronomic experiences. These would become the film’s hall-marks.
We hope that these suggestions whet your curiosity about the kitchen. When it comes to plating, you can count on us!
