What’s cooking with Master of None?
The series will feature a slew of new faces, including former BFF and former love interest Kevin Spacey as a character named “The Chef” and his co-star Amy Poehler as a cooking teacher named “Teacher.”
A few weeks ago, Master of All Tastes co-creator Noah Hawley teased that the series would feature some of his favorite food traditions from his childhood in New York City.
“It’s a little different for us than other shows because we want to have a real sense of family.
We want to be able to really dig into the food that I grew up with,” Hawley said at a recent Television Critics Association press tour.
Master of One, meanwhile, features a group of students as they prepare for the new semester, which includes a few classic dishes and some new ones.
A few months ago, Hawley confirmed that Master of Two, which he co-created with Spacey, will be a little more different from the other shows on his schedule.
“I think the main thing that we’re really trying to focus on is just creating a very different type of experience than other show that are really focused on the celebrity chef.
So we’re definitely bringing in some other characters that aren’t necessarily stars that have come from TV,” Hawks said.
The two co-creators will also be tackling some other major culinary issues, including the “chicken nugget” in the show, the “fries in a jar” in Master of the Kitchen, and the “shredded avocado” in Kitchen Nightmares.
Master Of Three, which has been a favorite of fans, will take a closer look at what goes into the creation of the dish in Master Of The Chef, while Master of Four will be tackling a different type the dish that fans are most obsessed with, namely “a hot and spicy chicken nuggy.”
Hawley and co-executive producer Scott Rosenberg, who is also on the show with Hawley, are excited to bring in some of the cast and crew of Master of Master and Master of Three to help explore these topics.
“We’re going to be exploring a lot of different things with these two shows, and we’re going in with a whole lot of passion and a whole bunch of humor in the process,” Hawkins said.
“But what we’re also really excited about is really looking at the whole spectrum of the food we’re cooking and how it’s made and how the process works.
We’re going into that and making some of these really fun and interesting observations that you can’t get on television.”
Hawleys and Rosenberg have been busy developing Master of Tastemakers and Master Of All Tasts, but it sounds like they’re also looking to get into Master of Five as soon as possible.
“When we talked about making this series and talking about what we wanted to do, the conversation went like, ‘How can we make this show so fun and so authentic that it’s like, really fun to watch?’
And that’s something that’s really fun for us, because we’ve seen it in other shows that have a little bit of the celebrity aspect and some of that has been very successful, but not as many people have seen that aspect of the show,” Rosenberg said.
Hawley added, “I love watching [these shows] because we can really get into the world of what it’s really like to be a chef and really enjoy making something.
That’s what I’m really looking forward to doing with Master Of Tastems.”
