The Mind of a Chef

There’s this awesome PBS show called “The Mind of a Chef” that’s being shown on Netflix.  According to the website and wiki, it’s a documentary about a chef and his/her inspiration into cooking.  I’m currently watching Season 1 which stars David Chang of Momofuku Restaurant Group fame.  One of his restaurants apparently is a 2 Michelin Star restaurant.

Of the 10 episodes I’ve watched so far, his love of ramen is evident.  It honestly makes me want to go out to have some ramen and tsukemen at some of the local ramen shops in the neighborhood.  But as the show dives into his inspirations, I find his passion for cooking is amazing.  I was surprised that he even lectured at Harvard in the pork/buta-bushi episode.  Granted most of the biology was covered by microbiologists at Harvard but to go so far as to try to understand the process of what makes pork/buta-bushi unique at a scientific level shows passion.

I’m almost done with season 1.  I’m going to go find myself a hearty bowl of tonkotsu ramen…
