Ugly Delicious

This TV show is ALL about flavour and how good the food tastes, not how it looks. Star chef David Chang leads you on a mouth-watering, cross-cultural hunt for the world’s most satisfying grub.


Something a little different; rather than a chef leading you on a culinary journey, it is acclaimed food writer Michael Pollan. He explores how cooking transforms food and shares our world, with a little bit of science behind it.

Something sweet and just for laughs: Nailed It!

This is definitely not within the realm of healthy eating or cooking, but sometimes you need a good laugh. Netflix “Nailed It!” challenges home bakers with a terrible track record to take a crack at re-creating edible masterpieces for a cash prize! It may not make your mouth water like some of the other shows, but it will have you cry-laughing.


All of these shows are available on Netflix and are here to inspire creativity in the kitchen. Please closely follow any dietary restrictions or requirements set out by your health care professional.
