These seven foreign top food documentaries, the next meal standard, check it out

In our daily life, food is closely related to us. For those who love food, we should be grateful to the first person who wrote food as a theme into a script and made it into a film, TV series or documentary. He used images to tell about food in the form of flow, reduction and sensory stimulation, so that we can break the limitation of time and space and accept the stimulation of “five senses” in the picture.

Such films have a healing temperature, whet our appetite, soothe our loneliness, and in that moment, the emotional resonance between the audience and the story reaches a rare height. Let Xiaofeng take you into the pure “dry goods” food documentary, enjoy a visual feast.

1. Italian style.

Recommended rating: ★★★★★

Produced by the BBC, it’s a two-man ensemble, but it’s a collaboration between British art historian AndrewGraham-Dixon and Italian chef Giorgio Locatelli. One is serious and cold, the other is cheerful and passionate. They drive a sports car along the Italian coastline together. The scenery along the road, the food, and the treasure of Italy — art, are all included in this documentary. Two sparks are also heating up in the process, very beautiful, highly recommended!

2. Ants on shrimp.

Recommended rating: ★★★★

In January 2015, the Michelin Double star honor and the restaurant industry recognized the world’s first, “Noma” restaurant in Copenhagen, Denmark, under the bold attempt of its chef Reni Rizepi, temporarily closed for 5 weeks, all the team moved to Tokyo, low-key luxury Mandarin Oriental hotel, the first time to the East Asian food aesthetics, with Noma’s classic “organic” cuisine philosophy, It was a perfect attempt to unite man with nature.

Considered one of the world’s most influential people in the restaurant industry by Time magazine, chef Rennie is known for his rigorous, focused but outspoken Nordic personality. He nods to allow Dutch-born food film director Maurice Dekkers to record the reboot in a foreign stove exclusively. In the process of stumbling and exploring with his team members, he learned how to combine the simple and fresh ingredients in Japan with the classic minimalist and exquisite cooking, and finally present them in 14 gorgeous dishes with diverse styles, creating a balance and delicious combination of eastern and western elements.

Ants on Shrimp uses a delicate but fluid approach, easy but not playful Angle, to vividly capture this wonderful journey of food feast…

3. The food is not beautiful.

Recommended rating: ★★★★★

NetFlix original documentary, taste first, no nonsense. Celebrity chef David Chang takes friends on a mouth-watering cross-cultural journey to discover some of the world’s most satisfying delicacies.

Very funny style, let you feel the fun of doing food.

4. Greedy Italy.

Recommended rating: ★★★★★

Gluttony Italy could be called a classic food documentary.

It’s about two old, somewhat macho men who take a road trip around Italy documenting various local cuisines. A good gay friend’s routine is to bicker, steal fruit from a tree on the way, stop by some scenic spot and cook a meal with fresh local ingredients. — It was heaven on earth.

Antonio Carluccio and Gennaro Contador are two of Italy’s national treasures, so you can collect all the recipes they’ve made in this film and get access to many classic Italian recipes. From the conversation of the two men in the film, we can also see that Italians are conservative and traditional in their food culture, pay attention to inheritance and are reluctant to change.

There have been two seasons so far, and they are very orthodox Italian, beautiful people, beautiful town scenery, and very appetising food. When two people arrive at a destination, Gennaro picks a few fresh lemons or catches a few fish and makes a small meal. Antonio sits leisurely beside him, conducting and joking. I sat in front of the computer, while watching and wiping saliva.

5. A Mediterranean diet trip.

Recommended rating: ★★★★★

I get to eat while I’m traveling, and I get to enjoy delicious food and beautiful scenery. Watching the documentary, I use the name “Escapes,” and I know that this is a relief movie that doesn’t get complicated or flashy.

The magical beauty of the pristine Mediterranean, dozens of ingredients can be transformed into countless cuisines. There are a lot of references to “poor man’s food,” and it’s this so-called “poor man’s food,” cooked with fresh ingredients and made in a simple way, that’s all the more appealing.

After watching it, I really love Greek cuisine. I want to buy a plane ticket and fly to Mediterranean countries to eat all over again.

Host Rick Stein is a literary sophisticate who travels to eat, drink and educate about history and literature. One episode was about Sicily and mentioned the Mafia, so I watched The Godfather again after watching the documentary.

6. Phil’s Global Feast.

Recommended index: ★★★★ ★

Tokyo, Italy, Paris, Hong Kong, Barcelona, Los Angeles… Traveling the world is all about food, pure gluttony.

The host Phil is a funny person who eats while playing. He praises those who like to eat, but he also dislikes them without reservation. When he eats delicious food, his eyes will be wide open and he sticks out his tongue and makes funny faces.

In addition to dessert in Paris, Mediterranean food in Italy and Barcelona, Phil, who is brave to try, also drank a lot of Chinese medicine in Hong Kong. His expression of difficulty was the same as when we drank Chinese medicine.

When watching this paragraph, I thought of a previous joke: When a foodie sees others cooking traditional Chinese medicine, he says, Can I try it? They told him it was traditional Chinese medicine. He said, “I’ll have a little taste.” Phil is a real foodie. I don’t like it if you don’t like it. I don’t like it if you don’t like it. I don’t like it if you don’t like it. #

7. Rick Stein’s culinary journey through Spain.

Recommended index: ★★★★ ★

When it comes to Spanish food, the most classic is naturally paella. For some time, I really wanted to eat paella, so I watched this documentary with Rick Stein as the host.

From the tapas in the bistro to the cauldron stew on the roadside, the rich Spanish flavor is also reflected incisively and vividly in the diet. However, some of the Spanish dishes in the film had too much olive oil, which was a bit overwhelming, and the Don’s own homemade dishes looked more delicious.

These are not the only documentaries Rick Stein has enjoyed. He is a veteran British television celebrity chef, known for his seafood dishes, not only opened several restaurants, but also for the BBC a number of similar programs. “From Venice to Istanbul” and “Rick Stein’s Long Weekends” are also highly rated food documentaries.

As mentioned above, Rick Stein not only knows how to cook, but also has profound literary literacy. Whenever he goes to a place to eat, he can casually talk about the life and works of many writers related to eating. Therefore, watching his documentary is really full of surprises and you can learn a lot of interesting knowledge.
