Restaurants at the End of the World
*Embargo: Reviews for Restaurants at the End of the World are embargoed until Wednesday, March 15.
National Geographic spices up the small screen with RESTAURANTS AT THE END OF THE WORLD, an all-new docuseries that combines all the flavors that make for heaping servings of must-watch TV. The four-part series, headlined by award-winning chef, entrepreneur and global trailblazer Kristen Kish, travels to four off-the-beaten-path pockets on the planet and premieres weekly on National Geographic, beginning Tuesday, March 21, at 10/9c. All episodes will be available on Disney+ on Wednesday, March 22.
RESTAURANTS AT THE END OF THE WORLD follows Chef Kish as she searches for the secret ingredients – people, places, culture and traditions – within the world’s most remote restaurants in Boquete, Panama; Svalbard, Norway; North Haven Island, Maine; and Paraty, Brazil. Running any successful venture takes a certain tenacity and grit, but those who set up deep in the wild, cut off from the grid and normal supply lines, are in a class all their own. Chef Kish goes behind the scenes and embeds herself with local purveyors, farmers, herders, kitchen crew, managers and head chefs to listen to their stories and witness the day-to-day balancing act required to bring unique food to the table, meal after meal. She then dives into the depths of the land to forage only the freshest ingredients and, along the way, unearths the culture and heart behind the cuisine.
For Restaurants at the End of the World, Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, and Jeremy Simmons are executive producers. For Cinetic, Ross Fremer, Brian Oakes and Christine O’Malley are executive producers. For National Geographic, Betsy Forhan is executive producer and Charlie Parsons is vice president of development.
