TV Chefs Table

Anyone who has seen the Netflix series 'Chef's Table,' has seen how beautiful food and incredible cinematography come together to create a docuseries to drool over. However, as audiences prepare for the release of the new season, reviews of sexist casting are making the show less palatable.

Despite the pastry and baking industry being dominated by female chefs, the series only features one woman throughout the entirety of the show. Out of the four pastry chefs chosen from around the world, New York's Christina Tosi is the singular female presence.

"I love baking because it reminds me of my grandma and it makes that moment in life a little sweeter," Tosi says in a preview for the upcoming season.

The Culinary Institute of America says that 85% of the entire pastry student body is female. The lack of representation in 'Chefs Table Pastry' is being met with harsh criticism from online commentators.

'Chefs Table Pastry' will be available for streaming April 13.
