Plot Synopsis

THE CHEF SHOW is a half-hour docuseries that follows actor/director Jon Favreau and award-winning Chef Roy Choi, who reunite after their film CHEF and embark on a culinary journey to learn, to share and celebrate different flavors, cultures and people. The two friends experiment with their favorite recipes and techniques, baking, cooking, exploring and collaborating with some of the biggest names in the entertainment and culinary world. From sharing a meal with the Avengers cast in Atlanta, to smoking brisket in Texas with world-renowned pitmaster Aaron Franklin, to honoring the legendary food critic Jonathan Gold in Los Angeles - Favreau and Choi embrace their passion for food, but more importantly their love for bringing people together over a delicious meal. Guests include: Gwyneth Paltrow, Bill Burr, Robert Downey Jr, Tom Holland, Kevin Feige, and the Russo brothers, Andrew Rea, Evan Kleiman, Jazz Singsanong, Robert Rodriguez, David Chang, Aaron Franklin and many more. On Friday, June 7, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the eight-episode first season of THE CHEF SHOW, which is executive produced by Choi and Favreau.
Netflix released Volume 2 of THE CHEF SHOW on Friday, September 13, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT. Roy and Jon are back for another six episodes, as they pick right up where they left off in Volume 1 -- with more episodes of the duo talking about food, cooking food, and most importantly, eating food. In the season opener, Seth Rogen knows how to break down chickens, so Jon and Roy put him to work as they prep two distinct chicken dishes. Other guests in Volume 2 include: Chef Daniele Uditi at LA's Pizzana; Chef Wes Avila at Guerrilla Tacos; Dave Filoni; and Andrew Rea & David Chang.
