The start of a new month means a fresh selection of food-focused television shows and movies is available to stream on the major platforms. Here are some new titles available on Netflix and Hulu this November.
The Final Table, Netflix’s latest plunge into the reality-culinary-competition waters, premieres Tuesday, November 20 and is its most ambitious yet. The roster of 24 kitchen rivals includes lauded chefs from 18 different countries, and challenges take place at famous restaurants around the world. At the end of the season, the cook who comes out on top will join a famous set of elders/judges — including Enrique Olvera, Grant Achatz, Clare Smyth, and Anne-Sophie Pic — at the titular final table. This series promises high-stakes drama.
Viewers interested in kitchen competition that is a little more down to earth and comforting will be pleased to see a new season of The Great British Baking Show arriving on Netflix Friday, November 9. Collection 6 aired as Season 9 in the United Kingdom earlier this year. Two critically acclaimed movies celebrating culinary icons are coming to Netflix this month: Julie & Julia, which chronicles writer Julie Powell cooking and blogging her way through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking, is available as of Thursday, November 1. Jiro Dreams of Sushi, the documentary that spotlights master sushi chef Jiro Ono, arrives Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22.
Season 15 of Bravo’s hit cooking competition, Top Chef, lands on Hulu Tuesday, November 6. This should give fans who missed out plenty of time to catch up before Season 16 premieres on Bravo Thursday, December 16.
Finally, in sad news, Waitress, the movie, starring Keri Russell, about an expert pie-maker and anxious mother-to-be that was made into a broadway play, will leave HBO Now Friday, November 30.
