You might recognize David Chang from Ugly Delicious.
If you're not already familiar with Chef David Chang's career, the first step might be to try and eat a dish at one of his many restaurants across New York City, Toronto, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, or Sydney, Australia.
But the next best thing is to catch his 2018 Netflix original series, Ugly Delicious, which borrows its name from the fact that David notes he recently became unconcerned with serving diners ugly dishes, as long as they're — you guessed it — delectable.
Unlike Chef's Table, which profiles an extraordinary chef from around the world in each of its episodes, Ugly Delicious takes on familiar dishes — like pizza, dumplings and fried chicken — and explores chefs in different places put their own international flairs on these staple foods.
Netflix's Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner borrows inspiration from David Chang's close friend, Anthony Bourdain.
But with Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner, the Mind of a Chef host pays something of an homage to his longtime friend, the late Anthony Bourdain. This time, David sets off to explore a single city, its culture and its cuisine.
Of course, that's not all David Chang and his celebrity guest will find on their near and far travels; they'll also discover new and surprising things about themselves, and we'll learn new things about our favorite stars. Example? Chrissy Teigen would totally eat a human, David wouldn't dare.
But for David, "it wasn't important to get these famous people," he said in an interview. "That wasn't the idea." Rather, the concept was "to show that someone that you might admire" could be "just like you."
And we get to see just this in the show's first episode, which takes us to Vancouver with Seth Rogen.
"The first episode of Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner on Netflix is just Seth Rogen laughing and it's super hilarious," fans are already clamoring on Twitter. "Loved the relaxed attitude in Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner in the new Netflix food show. Go David Chang! Learning with curiosity," added another.
