Netflix has announced these new series:

“Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat” launches October 19, 2018. Based on Samin Nosrat’s best-selling, James Beard Award-winning book, “Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat” is the essential guide to the basic elements of good cooking. Directed by Caroline Suh, each episode of this four-part series joins our spirited guide Samin as she travels to home kitchens of Italy, the southern islands of Japan, the heat of the Yucatán and back to Berkeley’s Chez Panisse—where she started her culinary career—to demystify and explore the central principles of what makes food delicious and how each of us can easily incorporate those elements into every dish. “Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat” is produced by Jigsaw Productions, the creators of “Cooked.”

“The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell”: Get ready to experience the art of darkness in ways you’ve never imagined with baker and artist, Christine McConnell, as she welcomes you into her terrifyingly delicious home, every episode she bakes, sculpts and sews to create delectable confections and hauntingly disturbing decor with the help of her colorful collection of creatures. The series  is produced by The Jim Henson Company and Wilshire Studios.

Meanwhile, “Chef’s Table” Season 5 will launch on September 28, 2018. The new season will take viewers inside the lives and kitchens of four new international chefs as the series explores their lives, talents and passion from their piece of culinary heaven.
