The Chef’s Domain is an entertaining eight-part culinary adventure series that follows the journey of one exceptional chef per episode who acts as guide and advocate of the suppliers who provide them with local bounty. Chefs are passionate about two aspects of their profession – how they cook and the ingredients they use. This landmark series shows, for the first time, how the relationship between chef and supplier is revolutionizing what we eat. With only days leading up to an event where these ingredients will be featured, viewers will be privy to the Chef’s favourite (and secret) sources of their great cooking. Ultimately, the chef must create an outstanding meal with the ingredients they have collected.
