James Beard Award-winning Chef David Chang is hitting the road, air and sea in his new Netflix show, Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. This new four-part series follows up his acclaimed show Ugly Delicious, which dissected the complex fusion between culture and food.
Chang’s travel buddies for this new show seem like they’re universal answers to the question, who’s your dream dinner guest? Seth Rogen takes Chang on a tour of his hometown of Vancouver, where they take advantage of the legality of weed and the diversity of the city’s cuisine. Chrissy Teigen joins him in Marrakesh, where they go on adventures and enjoy a native family’s cooking while Chang contemplates the beginning of his own family. Chang and Kate McKinnon land in Phnom Penh, talking creativity while tasting delights from land and sea. Lena Waithe rounds out this all-star team in L.A., exploring subcultures of the City of Angels for sources of divine style and food.
Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner aims to explore the cultural complexities of these cities beyond the plate with the aid of Chang’s guests’ perspectives. “I have an affinity for places that have a complex history,” Chang says. The present meal isn’t the focus of the show; it’s just as much about the people and cultures who put it on the plate.
Academy Award winner Morgan Neville is directing the series. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner is produced by Tremolo Productions in association with Majordomo Media. Neville, Dara Horenblas, Chang, Christopher Chen, Caryn Capotosto, and Blake Davis serve as executive producers.
These beautiful bites of life will premiere on Netflix on Oct. 23.
