I have not seen too many food shows. Saw this featured on Netflix and decided to give it a go and just finished the Delhi episode. It has a very nice format that runs smoothly first exploring the history of the food featured and focuses on the life story of a street vendor although it does show others as well. The style works quite well as are the animations and soundtrack. Other shows can be irkingly sensationalist in their presentation with the host hogging the attention instead of the subject material. One thinks of the typical Western foreigner just going around. But the focus on just one individual and his struggles to be able to cater to common people just going about their day was a refreshing take. Very inspirational and down-to-earth. Looking forward to finishing this. Shows that food is not just about eating. It's about people.
