Foodies, rejoice! Netflix’s has announced the release date for its latest original series, Chef’s Table on April 26 worldwide.

Filmmaker David Gelb, who previously directed the popular movie Jiro Dreams of Sushi about a legendary Japanese sushi master, helms the six-part series.

“We want to continue to support the best in non-fiction storytelling,” explained Lisa Nishimura, VP, original documentary and comedy for Netflix (via Deadline).  While some stories are best told as feature length films, others, like Chef’s Table, greatly benefit from being able to communicate their story in a multi-episodic fashion.”

In the trailer below, Netflix brands the new shows chefs crafting and plating food alongside gorgeous images of the landscapes from which they obtain their unusual ingredients. And if this quick glance is any indication, it looks like the cinematic production alone will be enough to turn viewers on to the series.

In addition to creator David Gelb, Andrew Fried, Brian McGinn and Matt Weaver assisted as executive producers. Boardwalk Pictures produced the series, with Dane Lillegard serving as co-executive producer for Boardwalk. Gelb, Fried, McGinn and Clay Jeter directed the series.

The new show is one of the 20 original series that Netflix claims will launch each year, as we reported earlier this year. Chef’s Table is an unsurprising move for the online streaming service, which is trying to appeal to a wide audience with diverse tastes. The series probably won’t hit the critical acclaim of House of Cards or Orange is the New Black, but it’s hoping that Chef’s Table will catch the attention of some of its 57 million paid monthly subscribers.
