Issues Raised in the Docuseries
It is an insightful show about food where the supposition is made that cooking might help modern people regain balance in their lives.
In each new episode, the host of the show sets off on a trip to a special corner of the globe in order to feel the saliva in his mouth and stomach when a hero of the show cooks something really incredible. It can be a member of an Australian Aboriginal tribe or just an American nun.
Do you believe that home-cooked food is intrinsically better? Can we re-obtain the balance in our souls by means of penetrating into the vast world of delicious tastes? What do you think of this? Share your points with us in the comments!
A Portion of Criticism
The series has been proclaimed as an insightful project with an original and inspiring idea. Yet this has induced the appearance of some critical points. The series is bashed for the little space. Too much material have been crammed into four parts of the first season premiere. The most pivotal things have been also shown without getting to the very deep points that should be in the narration, according to the opinions of critics.
Nevertheless, everything seems to be pretty charming. The project needs its further renewals yet the extension of the volume won’t do any harm. The agenda is when the next season air date will be announced.
So far, no statements concerning the series future have been made. It can be very much near, as well as the exposal of the Cooked season 2 release date. Stay tuned for updates!
