Whether you tune in to Netflix’s critically-acclaimed Chef’s Table for the chefs, the food or the travel component, one thing’s for certain: It’s high end stuff.
Between the classical music, sweeping camera angles and bevy of high-brow press interviews, the docuseries oozes class, luxury and aspiration you never knew you desired in a show about food.
Mastermind Fred Armisen, who plays chef Francis, begins by saying, “I want this to be the unifying sushi that anyone can eat, but nobody wants to eat.” His goal is to serve the “most borderline not-sushi sushi in the world” that may also resemble eating “bits of plastic.”
“I want to make it like we have no love for it,” he says boldly, completely contradicting everything that’s ever been said on the hit Netflix series.
Check out the full clip below. And if you lack a funny bone and are more focused on watching the actual series, you can check out the chefs featured in season three here.
Here’s to hoping that Armisen and his Portlandia team introduce us to more apathetic, albeit eccentric chefs in the very near future.
