David Chang's New Netflix Show Sees Him Eating Around the World with Seth Rogen and Chrissy Teigen

In Netflix's Ugly Delicious, acclaimed chef David Chang explored the history of different dishes and occasionally caught up with a celebrity friend — such as Aziz Ansari, Steven Yeun and Ali Wong. With Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner, he's doing pretty much the same, just focusing on specific global cities rather than specific foods. And, yes, once again he has some high-profile company.

The four-episode food and travel show sees the Momofuku founder head to various corners of the world and eat three meals — breakfast, lunch and dinner, of course — with the famous person who happens to be by his side. In Vancouver, he spends a day with Seth Rogen. Over in Marrakesh, he eats and chats with Chrissy Teigen. Laughing through Phnom Penh with Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon and kicking back in Los Angeles with Master of None's Lena Waithe are also on the agenda.

The aim is not to only focus on cuisine, but to explore the variety of cultures and experiences that the planet has to offer — although, naturally, plenty of food is going to be consumed. Chang and his guests devour tasty doughnuts, dumplings, burgers and (accidental) bowls of oil, share stories, learn new things and (as is always the case with these kinds of shows) make viewers hungry and envious that they're not there with them.

Netflix seems increasingly fond of these types of culinary-focused series, as the star-studded The Chef Show also demonstrated earlier this year. While that program is presented by filmmaker Jon Favreau and chef Roy Choi, Chang popped up on two episodes — and so did recurrent foodie fan Rogen, too.

If you want to catch Chang in the flesh, he'll be hanging out and cooking at Western Australia's Gourmet Escape this November. Otherwise, check out the trailer for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner below and start watching here.
