Mind of A Chef, The
From ramen to rotting bananas, from Copenhagen to Kentucky, from pork buns to golf clubs, this series is a rethinking of a "travel/cooking show" - it feeds the gut and the mind. It dares to make connections between food and nature, science, music, art, sports, history, and pretty much anything else a renowned chef can stir up. It is an experience that unlocks the potential of food, travel and the mind. Narrated by Anthony Bourdain.
