Chef’s Table is a documentary series on Netflix that goes inside the lives of some of the world’s most renowned chefs and their kitchens. First aired in 2015, each 50-minute episode focuses on a single chef, providing a unique look at their lives, talents and passions, as well as what drives them to succeed, their philosophy or simply how they got into cooking.

 

What makes Chef’s Table fascinating is the different stories, cultures and experiences around the globe told through the medium of food. Although the series is not a travel documentary as such, the range of locations and nationalities incorporated, which includes the US, Italy, Argentina, Australia, Sweden and Thailand, means that it functions much like one, giving a guide to local cuisine and culture through the eyes of a top chef and their kitchen. For me, this is a more interesting and engaging way of discovering a place than simply travelling around visiting the touristic landmarks, providing more depth and knowledge to the country and what it has to offer. You can, without doubt, learn a lot about a place through its food.

 

Additionally, I found the personal aspect of each episode to be an intriguing concept that departs from both the traditional travel and food documentary. Rather than simply talking about culinary topics, the chefs often go off on a tangent to speak about deeply personal experiences, as well as their thoughts and feelings of certain themes. In one episode, for example, an American chef talks about the death of his mother when he was only four years old. This kind of intimacy makes for a very stimulating series. That being said, the chefs can at times come across as over-dramatic and the producers certainly play up to it, making it feel slightly contrived.

Pros
  • Culture and travel told through the medium of food
  • Intimate episodes featuring personal stories
Cons
  • Can feel contrived at times

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
