Chef David Chang, you may know the name – one of the most well-known and renowned chefs in the restaurant business. Owner and mastermind behind the global Momofuku Restaurant Group, including New York's Milk Bar Bakery, Toronto's Momofuku Noodle Bar, Momofuku Seiōbo in Sydney, and Momofuku CCDC in Washington DC. Since 2009 his Momofuku Ko restaurant in New York has retained two Michelin Stars.
Delving into television and entertainment, the American chef has taken on roles in shows such as Treme, The Mind Of A Chef, and The Chef Show, as well as branching into creating, producing, and starring in his own Netflix original, Ugly Delicious – In which he combines travelling and history with cooking, featuring a different dish and it's culture and evolution in each episode.
However, his latest Netflix venture is what we're here to talk about today. Creating his second Netflix original in 2019, Chang came out with Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.
A four-episode series (so far) on Netflix, inviting well-known and well-loved celebrities on food adventures with him. Known for his bad-boy persona in the restaurant industry, Chang isn't afraid to push boundaries, bringing cooking into the modern age of escaping formalities, talking openly about mental health issues, and allowing himself to have a big personality.
We can safely say Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner is our binge-worthy pick as of late. Although a short series, each episode is filled to the brim with entertainment and education, as well as a slight insight into the lives of some of our favourite celebrities.
The season kicks off with David Chang taking comedian Seth Rogan around cannabis-fortified trip around Vancouver.
Later in the series, we witness Chrissy Teigen take Chang through Marrakesh, indulging in a traditional Moroccan breakfast and wandering Marrakesh's iconic markets. From discussing whether or not he would try human meat if given the chance to Kate McKinnon taking Chang on his first-ever trip to South East Asia, there isn't a dull episode.
As well as learning plenty along the way, the show is full of light-hearted laughs and shared wisdom from both Chang and his guests.
David Chang's extraordinary accomplishments and electric personality are what make the show so great, we highly suggest giving Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner a watch – out on Netflix now!
