I've only watched the first two of season 2 on Netflix. Love this series. The first one is about Grant Achatz who owns Alinea down in Chicago. I've never been there but we've sold many knives to their staff over the years. None to Grant according to my records.



The second episode was about this dude from Brazil that was foraging the rain forest for different ingredients. Very interesting guy. He was shown scaling a huge fish (maybe 4ft long) with a german type slicing knife and I thought it was going to snap off in his hand. They showed him sharpening and using a rod quite a bit too.

Burned through the 1st and second seasons. Loved them.

Yeah, I though he was going to break that knife too. haha

Alinea is awesome if you don't mind spending some coin, it's like a 4 hour journey where you never know what's coming next. Next on my to do list of restaurants is his new place called Roister which is more casual and apparently has the best fried chicken around. I hate having to buy tickets though.

Also, one of my former employees works for the Alinea group, I know he has a couple CKTG knives & bag.. or had. I think he forgot them in a taxi a couple months ago.

Grant Achatz does some of the most amazing food in the world. I haven't watched season 2 yet so I don't know what detail they went into, but the man is extraordinary.

the episode in season two is a lot of the same stuff that's in Spinning Plates & For Grace.. but regardless it's super interesting. You can read about him (& Nick Kokonas) in a lot more detail in their book "Life on the line". It's a good read.

Just watched Restaurant Australia. It was a bit underwhelming but not terrible. They served raw kangaroo meat as one of the dishes in the final dinner. Chef's table looks to be a little better IMO, will probably get down on it soon enough.

I kind of wish it was less biography and more about actually cooking and managing a restaurant and all the challenges it takes. It's a very complicated type of business to run effectively. I would never ever ever try to do that kind of business.

The cinematography is quite good! The photographer in me loves them for that reason alone, ha.

Yeah the food shots are the best part. I love checking out the way they plate stuff.
