Ugly Delicious (Season 2)
David Chang is back again with another season of Ugly Delicious, an anthology of Chang's travelogue. The second season has four episodes: "Kids Menu," that touches upon Chang's parenting woes; "Don't Call It Curry," where he takes you to Mumbai to understand the real meaning of curry; "Steak," talks about the dynamics of this juicy beef; while "As the Meat Turns" discusses the nuances of cooking meat on a spit.
The Chef Show (Third Volume)
Jon Favreau and Chef Roy Choi's third volume starts off with a trip to chef Wolfgang's world-renowned restaurant. The second episode introduces us to Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger who teach the duo a thing or two about Mexican recipes, then they take a trip to Choi's Las Vegas-based restaurant, Best Friend.
In the last two episodes, the duo invites director and filmmaker Sam Raimi into the kitchen to learn how to make Southern biscuits, and, one of the most time-consuming bread one can make: sourdough. In the finale, the duo gets help from Micah Wexler and Nucgaek Jasser of Wexler's Delito teach them how to make traditional Jewish deli staples.

This show is literally a sugar rush as contestants race against each other and against the clock to bake mouthwatering cupcakes, confections, and cakes.

The second season focuses on the effects of avocado as the trendy superfood; frustrated winegrowers from France fighting cheap wine imports and foreign competitors; the alarming effects of the production of bottled water; the harsh bittersweet truths about sugar manufacturers; and what can a bean-to-bar chocolatier bring to the table.
