UGLY DELICIOUS: From James Beard award-winning chef of Momofuku David Chang and Academy Award-winning director Morgan Neville comes Ugly Delicious, a Netflix original documentary series that challenges both our taste buds and minds.
Ugly Delicious will cover a myriad of cuisines with special guests and food fanatics like Alan Yang, Ruth Reichl, Peter J. Meehan, Jessica Koslow, Alex Raij, Justin Yu, Gustavo Arellano, Ali Wong, Fuchsia Dunlop, René Redzepi, Jimmy Kimmel, Roy Choi, and Serena Dai.
The show is eight episodes and showcases Chang traveling around the world with writers, chefs, activists and artists. He will focus on food and to break down cultural barriers, tackle misconceptions and uncover unique experiences.
Ugly Delicious ventures out of the standard kitchens you see every day and wanders into the wider world to explore Viet-Cajun cuisine in Houston, Neapolitan Pizza in Tokyo, home cooking in Copenhagen, and more.
Chang says the goal was to create “a collaborative forum, a place where it’s okay to have strong opinions and honest conversations about food.”
“Food is something we all have in common. It’s an essential part of who we are and how we create connections across cultures,” says Chang.
“In that spirit, we brought together some of the people we admire most to make Ugly Delicious a collaborative forum, a place where it’s OK to have strong opinions and honest conversations about food.”
Ugly Delicious comes out globally on February 23rd on Netflix.
