The Mind of a Chef
Genre: Cultural
From ramen to rotting bananas, from Copenhagen to Kentucky, from pork buns to golf clubs IN THE MIND OF A CHEF is a rethinking of a "travel/cooking show" -- it feeds the gut and the mind. It is a series that dares to make connections between food and nature, science, music, art, sports, history, and pretty much anything else a renowned chef can stir up. It is an experience that unlocks the potential of food, travel and the mind.

Episode #301
Origin
Ed returns to his roots in East Brooklyn, where as a Korean kid in New York, he was surrounded by an eclectic mix of cultures and cuisines that inspired how he cooks today. Spending time with other chefs who have roots in one cuisine but have veered away from their assumed culinary paths, Ed explores the meaning of origin in the city where his life and career began. Ed and Ivan Orkin stop by one of the city's oldest "appetizing" stores and head back to the kitchen to cook their versions of American cuisine (Japanese-Jewish and Korean-Southern). Alex Stupak shows why a white kid from Boston should be cooking Mexican, and Ed pays a visit to his mom in New Jersey for a lesson on how to cook Korean comfort food.

Locality
Chef Nilsson depends on his network of local purveyors to keep the restaurant supplied. Because everything is sourced in a 100-mile radius, the seasons play a big part in availability. As a result, the needs and supply constantly shift between the restaurant and purveyor, but their close relationship ensures that diners are never left hungry. This episode examines the connection to locality that Chef Nilsson views as a staple of his cooking philosophy.
