If you, too, have been curious as to how to make the same improvements, below are some really beautiful food series which have helped to inspire me. With each episode I feel like I'm being taken away on a mini adventure. I've not only learned a ton about the authentic process of cooking; but I was exposed to so many interesting and beautiful ethnic food traditions, as well as the classic ways of preparing and serving food.
• Cooked: Journalist Michael Pollan discusses the reality of how most modern people have lost touch with the truth about how food actually gets to our plates due to corporations and busy lifestyle practices. There are four subjects in this series based on the elements––fire, water, air, and earth. Each episode digs deep into how everyday basic food is traditionally prepared and the rich cultural traditions behind them. The show really transformed the way I look at food, and opened my eyes to the power and beauty of cooking from scratch.
• The Mind of a Chef: This series describes food by combining travel, history, cooking, and science. You get to explore so many different hole-in-the-wall restaurants from around the world, and learn about the stories and traditions of how a lot of popular cuisines were born.
• For Grace: Chef Curtis Duffy opens up about how creating his restaurant Grace has changed his life and the lives of everyone around him. He explains how the food he creates is a part of his personality, and that only the best of the best ingredients are worth using.
