Week 1 of the partial lockdown in Malaysia and we’ve just got to say: Netflix, we love you. While we’re all trying our best not to spend the entire days binge-watching movies — reminding ourselves that we’re still working from home — here’s a list of shows that’ll motivate you to do something fun and healthy: whipping up a delicious home-cooked spread. And if all else fails, these food delivery services in Kuala Lumpur are still open for business.
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Chef David Chang is joined by some of his famous friends like Seth Rogen (who is as hilarious in that episode as you’d imagine), Chrissy Teigen and her headbands, and Kate McKinnon. Together they explore food, culture, and cuisines in different cities around the world.
The Final Table
Turning up the heat in the kitchen, a team of chefs partake in a fast-paced competition to impress some tough critics with their renditions of iconic dishes from around the world. The show sees guest stars to spice things up including Alessandra Ambrosio and Dax Shepard.
This series takes you across Asia to celebrate the most-hailed authentic street food, which includes Bangkok’s one-Michelin starred crab omelette by the delightful Raan Jay Fai, and chilli crab at KEK Seafood in Singapore. Street Food will leave you hungry for hawker food… and wondering how Malaysia didn’t make the list.
There could not be a more fitting title for this bake-off series, where participants create outstanding desserts against within a tight timeframe. The winner gets a grand prize of USD 10,000, with their sweet treats judged by the likes of world-class pastry chefs Candace Nelson and Adriano Zumbo.
The Chef Show
Remember the 2014’s Chef? Jon Favreau, who wrote, directed and starred in the movie is joined again by chef Roy Choi in this cooking travelogue series. The duo travel around in discovery of new flavours, cultures and people, while collaborating with some big names in the entertainment and culinary scenes.
Award-winning chef David Chang is joined by writers, artists, and other culinary stars in celebration of food as a way to unite communities and break down cultural barriers. With guest stars like Jimmy Kimmel, Chang explores food-famous destinations like Tokyo and Copenhagen.
Food is a love story, but if you need some convincing, you’ll find it in every episode here boasting beautiful meals. Chef’s Table follows six international chefs while documenting their lives and passion for bringing people the best food they can.
Salt Fat Acid Heat
This show is based on Satin Nosrat’s best-selling book Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, a cooking bible on the four basic elements of good cooking. Nosrat travels as far as home kitchens in Italy and the southern islands of Japan to show cooks at home how to incorporate these elements into every dish.
Somebody Feed Phil
Creator of sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond Philip Rosenthal brings the funny and honest in his own travelogue. Watch him take an eating tour joined by friends and family to far-flung foodie destinations like Tel Aviv, New Orleans and Mexico City.
