SA chef to star in hot new Netflix show

In August we reported that Netflix announced its plans for a new binge-worthy chef competition show to launch later this year. In a late-night twist, Cape Town’s chef Ash Heeger (who is about to unveil her new restaurant Riverine Rabbit) has revealed that she will be one of the 24 competitors in The Final Table, which will air worldwide on 20 November.

The series, which has already been touted as a rival to Top Chef, will feature 12 chef teams of two cooking up different countries’ cuisines for some of the world’s greatest culinary talents. Each episode will focus on a different country and cuisine with celebrities, food critics and that country’s top chef eliminating teams until the grand finale, when the winning chef will be honoured with a seat at the judge’s table.

Chef Ash will be paired up with chef Alex Haupt of 101 Gowrie in Amsterdam.
