Since I gave up cable last year, finding a great new TV show streaming on Netflix is a cause for celebration — and a great food-related show is twice as exciting. Narrated by Anthony Bourdain, The Mind of a Chef takes a peek inside the life and food obsessions of chef David Chang in a fun PBS series that mixes cooking, travel, science and history. And you can stream the first season on Netflix!

The show is kind of a live-action version of Lucky Peach, the food journal from David Chang and McSweeney's, and reflects a similar cheeky, off-beat attitude and insatiable curiosity about food. With its hip graphics and masculine vibe, it's the kind of show even your college-age brother who doesn't care much about cooking might enjoy, but even for the already food-obsessed, there is a lot to appreciate about the series.

But be prepared: you will have intense cravings for everything you see on the show, starting with the ramen in episode one.

Stream it on Netflix: The Mind of a Chef Season One
→ Watch it on PBS: The Mind of a Chef Season Two (starts in September)
