Chef’s Table Details

Launched in 2015, Netflix’s longest-running culinary series, Chef’s Table, is now in the news for its upcoming series about Pizza. The last season was Chef’s Table: BBQ, which was released in fall 2020. The upcoming season is all about pizza from Portland to Phoenix, Italy to Japan, and further rounding up the globe, digging into the best pizzas from around the world prepared by renowned chefs.

This American documentary series was created by David Gelb to take viewers inside both the lives and kitchens of a variety of acclaimed and successful international chefs. The main aim of the show was to place the spotlight on a single chef in a single episode and explore the unique lives, talents, and passions which influence their style of cooking. It all began in 2015 with Chef’s Table: Volume 1, followed by the 2nd volume in 2016. Then there was a spin-off Chef’s Table: France in 2016.


The next year, Netflix aired Chef’s Table: Volume 3 further, and they released another volume, Chef’s Table: Pastry, in 2018. The next two volumes came up in 2018 and 2019, respectively, with four episodes each. In 2020, the makers rolled out the second spin-off, Chef’s Table: BBQ, which was a huge hit on the platform. The fans are all set to welcome Chef’s Table: Pizza in September 2022.

Chef’s Table is said to be Netflix’s first original food series, or, say, cooking series. Since 2015, the franchise has dazzled audiences for years and helped Netflix find its footing in the world of food television. We hope Chef’s Table: Pizza to be another hit in the series as the fans are all ready to watch the stories and peep into the kitchens of some of the world’s greatest pizzamakers.
