Chefs Uncut


"Chefs Uncut" delves deep into the heart of Asia's culinary scene, telling the incredible untold stories of six of its most audacious and celebrated chefs

To make it to the top, the journeys taken by chefs are fraught with challenges; social and cultural stigmas, family pressures, and the financial realities of making it in an industry with a high probability of failure.

These are people who’s raw passion - often verging on obsession - drove them to make it to the top of one of the most brutal industries in the world. Yet these stories go almost entirely untold.

Each 30-minute episode unravels the unfiltered journey of these leading chefs, who, with their fearless approach and unparalleled passion, are redefining the boundaries of Asian cuisine. From the busy streets of Singapore to the vibrant markets of Thailand and the rich landscapes of the Philippines, this series is an ode to chefs who dare to dream, innovate, and challenge the status quo.
