Watch: Danny Bowien Hosts the Potluck of Your Dreams on 'Mind of a Chef'

The holiday special also features Anthony Bourdain, April Bloomfield, and Sean Brock

Mind of a Chef’s holiday special is coming. Chef Danny Bowien of Mission Chinese Food fame will host the episode, which features the greatest potluck dinner you’ll never be invited to: Think April Bloomfield cooking slabs of meat over a backyard fire pit and roasting whole pigs while Anthony Bourdain mans the record player.

Music is in fact the overall theme of the episode, with chefs — including Bloomfield, Sean Brock, and Iñaki Aizpitarte of Le Chateaubriand — speaking about the role music plays in their own cooking and dining experiences. The hour-long episode premieres on December 1 on YouTube and Netflix.

Meanwhile, Mind of a Chef’s fifth season, featuring Ludo Lefebvre, is wrapping up; the upcoming season six will be anchored by Bowien.

And in keeping with the Yuletide theme, here’s a simply amazing Instagram featuring a youthful Bowien that proves his hair was epic from a young age:
