In addition to just being delicious, great barbeque can tell a family's story, or a community's, or a culture's. That makes it a perfect subject for the Chef's Table series, which uses its subjects' personal histories to tell larger stories. Here, food is what connects children to their parents, connects chefs to their communities, or, in one case, connects a woman to an entire culture on the brink of being lost to history. Episodes move slowly and deliberately, but have a cumulative, often touching, effect as Chef's Table: BBQ illustrates just how much history a single plate can contain.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
