New, 5 comments

The Mind of a Chef, the Beard Award winning PBS television series from Zero Point Zero, Anthony Bourdain, and WGBH, is back for a second season, and this time it will feature chefs Sean Brock and April Bloomfield. "Season two goes inside the heads of two chefs," says Bourdain in the teaser trailer. "And we'll lift the skulls on both of them." (The first season mainly focused on David Chang and his travels.)

According to a press release (below), the series will "consist of 16 episodes, with the first eight featuring Brock and the second half featuring Bloomfield." Here's some information about the destinations from Executive Producer Chris Collins: "With Sean we plow headfirst into his world of true Southern cuisine – from long lost seeds and crops in the lowlands of South Carolina to rice fields in Senegal. April is marching us from the Pacific Northwest to Birmingham, England, tracing culinary tradition, instinct and obsession – from cops to curries to clams."

The Mind of a Chef season two premieres Fall of 2013 on PBS. Here's the teaser trailer and the press release:
