You don’t have to be a chef or even know how to cook to enjoy the shows gathered on the new PBS Food FAST channel—but if you binge it long enough, you might pick up some kitchen mojo by osmosis. Starting today, you can find the free 24/7 channel in the U.S. on Amazon Freevee, Plex, and Roku.
The programming gathers both recent and more vintage titles, and includes The Mind of a Chef, The French Chef with Julia Child, Eating In With Lidia, I’ll Have What Phil’s Having, Jacques Pépin: Heart & Soul, Essential Pépin, Simply Ming, and more. (Die-hard fans will know that Julia Child already has her own standalone FAST channel from PBS Distribution, for those who need continuous access to Child’s inimitable style and personality.)
In a PBS press release, the company promises its new channel will supply “inspiration for new recipes, cooking lessons, and the opportunity to embark on foodie adventures around the world,” as well as peeks inside the workspaces of culinary celebs like—obviously (from the series titles)—Child, Pépin, and Ming Tsai, but also Marcus Samuelsson, Vivian Howard, José Andrés, and more.
