Peabody and Emmy Award-winning docuseries “A CHEF’S LIFE” begins its fourth season with host and celebrated chef Vivian Howard navigating audiences through a new line up of farm fresh ingredients. Through 10 episodes, Vivian takes viewers on a culinary journey that stretches from Kinston to Portland to the Big Apple.
Things kick off in melodic gear with a benefit dinner where The Avett Brothers play second fiddle and spring onions take center stage. The season explores a lush landscape of watermelon, sunchokes, field peas, catfish, mayo and other unlikely food stars. In back-to-back episodes spanning both American coasts, the self-professed “Collard Queen” cooks cabbage and crowns it king.
Vivian also realizes a longtime dream and embraces her new role as cookbook author - this season of “A CHEF’S LIFE” takes viewers into the high-pressure and rewarding business of book writing. Major staff changes at the restaurant, a heavier workload and the drama of heightened emotions make each portion of this fourth season all the more delicious. When asked how to describe this new season, Vivian called it the cream of the crop. “When you do an ingredient-driven show, the worry is that you’ll run out of content. But this season surprised me at the depth of story. I think it’s our best yet.”
