Map-It –

If you have been reading my reviews for a long time, then you will undoubtedly know that I have a deep love for David Gelb’s striking food documentary series Chef’s Table on Netflix. It is a world full of beautiful food, fascinating stories, and in-depth exploration into a world that I don’t get to visit. Which is even more of an issue in 2020 because of [waves hands around everywhere]. Well, today the latest season Chef’s Table BBQ came out, and I thought it was an excellent time to jump back in and give the map a refresh.

While in our first map we featured Europe, this time around I thought it would be a good idea to focus in on North America. This is because it probably has the second-highest density of locations and also home to ¾ of the new sites in BBQ season. In North America, we have the only place where we have three cities with multiple entries with Charleston, Los Angeles, and New York. But also the only location with more than two entries with the three in New York. Throughout the seasons, we have had a good spread of locations across the USA, with only the Pacific North West missing. However, it is odd that after all this time we have had nothing from Canada.

Here we see the map in all its glory, and once I started to put it together, it dawned on me just how many chefs’ lives we have gotten to explore over the years. The most significant cluster is still in France, thanks to the Chef’s Table France miniseries. There are always substantial gaps across Africa and Asia that feel telling after this long. I did consider adding the Street Food locations into the mix as well giving their similar nature, production companies, and are both created by David Gelb, but I wasn’t quite sure if that was the right direction. If you would like to see that, please let me know in the comments below.
