Food Network has "mostly settled into a comfortable, familiar format: a competition with a celebrity chef as host, set in a studio, with contestants facing a time limit," says Andy Dehnart. Meanwhile, Netflix is coming out with shows as diverse as Nailed It!, Chef's Table, Sugar Rush and the upcoming Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. As Food Network historian Allen Salkin says of the cable network, "at a critical juncture — which I would say was in the last five or ten years — they decided not to program for the audience that they created.”

"They often find their own notoriety, as we see this season, in bakeries, gelato cafes, and rare dessert-only dining establishments. Their relative anonymity means Chef’s Table can do what it does best: dive deep into their psyches to help understand their passion and motivation."
