Raises the bar!!
I am blown away by Ugly Delicious. I've finished season 1 and can't wait for a season 2.
Each show focuses on a single food item or topic and David Chang travels America and the world exploring it, discussing its history, it's rise and development.
For example, the episode on fried chicken wasn't content to just show David Chang eating some fried chicken but he dives into the history of it, teaches us why it's a racial food and why some people won't be seen in public ordering it. I had no idea. I just thought it was delicious. The episode on Chinese food, discusses why Chinese American food is completely different than the food in China and how western tastes are coming to change over time.
This is a far cry from a typical food show that just glorifies a few chefs or is endless shots of food porn. Give it a watch!
