I’m liking it, in a hypnotized sort of way.
" In stark contrast to its roll-out of celebrity chef shows like Ugly Delicious and Chef’s Table , Netflix barely promoted the new Chinese-language food series Flavorful Origins prior to its launch this week — there wasn’t even a trailer cut for this new series. But in terms of its format and scope, there’s nothing else in the Netflix catalog quite like it. If you’re a fan of docuseries like Ugly Delicious or Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat , there’s a good chance you will find something that piques your interest in this exploration of regional Chinese cuisine."
“the big difference here is that the focus is never on the life of the chef, but rather the life of the dish. You see the farmers picking the ingredients out in the fields and orchards…”
" Flavorful Origins is , perhaps, the food porniest thing you can stream on Netflix right now.".
