The middle of summer is a great time to lock yourself inside with the AC on full blast along with a list of things to watch. And this month, fans of food-themed TV shows and movies are in for a treat, because the big streaming services are adding a ton of culinary-minded content to their libraries. Here’s a roundup of all the food programming that’s going to appear on Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime this month (and for more ideas on what to watch, subscribe to Eater’s free TV newsletter Eat, Drink, Watch).
On Friday, July 6, Netflix will add another season of Phil Rosenthal’s culinary travel series Somebody Feed Phil, as well as more episodes of Jerry Seinfeld’s interview show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The following Friday, the first season of Sugar Rush, a new timed baking competition starring Adriano Zumbo and Candace Nelson as judges, will land on the streaming platform. And at the end of the month, the third installment of food-filled Japanese-language reality show Terrace House: Opening New Doors will make its debut on Netflix. In addition to these new series, Netflix also nabbed the dessert-heavy rom-com Chocolat and Adam Sandler chef dramedy Spanglish, both of which are now available to stream.
Hulu, meanwhile, will see an influx of old Food Network shows this month. Starting this Friday, July 6, the streaming service will be home to older seasons of Beat Bobby Flay, Bobby Flay’s Barbecue Addiction, Chopped Junior, Triple D, Food Network Star Kids, Kids Baking Championship, Kids BBQ Championship, Man Finds Food, Man Fire Food, and Burgers, Brew & Que’. Additionally, past seasons of Chopped, Cutthroat Kitchen, Iron Chef Gauntlet, and Restaurant: Impossible will be available on Hulu starting July 13.
Over on Amazon, Prime subscribers will get to watch a new series called Eat. Race. Win. starting on July 16. This show is about a “performance chef” named Hannah Grant who cooks for the athletes competing in the Tour de France. And on that same day, the Melissa McCartney baking competition comedy Cook Off! — which was filmed before the comedian became a big star and sat in the vault until last fall — will also go live on Amazon Prime.
Finally, Off the Menu, an indie rom-com about a New Mexico chef who falls in love with a fast-food company honcho who’s trying to steal her signature dish, will be available for you to watch starting on July 20.
