Netflix’s ‘The Final Table’ Might Be Its Most Intense Cooking Competition Ever
Netflix is about to take us on an international culinary trip with their intense new competition series, The Final Table, and celebrities including Dax Shepard and Alessandra Ambrosio are coming along for the wild (and tasty) ride.
In the first trailer for The Final Table, which debuted Tuesday, October 16, we meet 12 international teams of chefs who will compete in fast-paced challenges to create dishes from various countries. The end goal? To impress celebrity ambassadors, food critics, and some of the world’s top culinary experts in order to win themselves a spot among the best of the best.
Competitors will create dishes from Mexico, Spain, England, Brazil, France, Japan, the US, India, and Italy. Those dishes will be judged by the country’s top chef and a famed food critic, plus stars such as Dax Shepard and Colin Hanks, former Daily Show correspondent Hasan Minhaj, and Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio. They’ll decide which teams make it to the finale — and which don’t.
