PBS's new series The Mind of a Chef stars David Chang along with the voice of Anthony Bourdain (he's the narrator and executive producer). It's part cooking show, part travel show, part history show, part whatever Chang and Bourdain feel like eating and talking about show. Last week, on the very first episode, it was ramen. Tonight it'll be fish sauce, kimchi, and raw scallops.
It's almost like the television show companion to Lucky Peach, the quarterly food journal that Chang created with Zero Point Zero, the production company behind Bourdain's show No Reservations as well as this new show. Here are three clips from tonight's episode.

"What could be more delicious than putting spicy cabbage in a jar and letting it ferment for months? Not much." —Anthony Bourdain
"Anchovy, salt, sugar. That's it." —David Chang
