What do you get when you put your favorite MCU characters in a food show? Let Jon Favreau show you in his upcoming Netflix series.
The Chef Show was inspired by Favreau’s 2014 film, Chef. The director is hosting the show with Roy Choi, who worked as a culinary consultant on the set of Chef and also taught Favreau how to cook like a pro.
Favreau said in a statement that he fell in love with cooking and food while shooting Chef and he wanted to do it again. “I am so nostalgic about that time and those experiences—this series gives me the perfect opportunity to get back in the kitchen and create some new memories.”
Aside from Favreau and Choi, The Chef Show has a stellar lineup of celebrity guests. In the trailer, the first people you’ll see are Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Holland. (Our Iron Man and Spider-Man fangirl hearts are soaring.) You’ll also see Gwyneth Paltrow, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, Avengers: Endgame directors the Russo brothers, David Chang of Chef’s Table, and more.
The Chef Show will premiere on Netflix on June 7. According to Eater, the episodes will feature a dinner with the Avengers cast, a tribute to food writer Jonathan Gold, and a look at Franklin Barbecue’s smoking process. Watch the trailer below if you haven’t.[Eater]
