Filipino chef Jordy Navarra to be featured on Netflix’s ‘Chefs Uncut’ series

The upcoming series will put the spotlight on the stories, inspirations, and challenges of six Southeast Asian chefs

Filipino cuisine continues to carve its space in the international food scene and that is all thanks to cooks and chefs who champion local flavors and produce. Among them is chef Jordy Navarra, who, together with his team, whips up modern takes on Pinoy dishes at Toyo Eatery restaurant. This time, their mission goes beyond their humble space in Makati City and into the streaming platform Netflix.

Chef Jordy is set to appear on Netflix's upcoming series "Chefs Uncut." The docuseries will spotlight "six culinary maestros who have left a significant mark on the Asian food scene." Apart from the Filipino chef, the show will feature Thailand's chef Thitid “Ton” Tassanakajohn and chef "Pam" Pichaya Soontornyanakij and Singapore's chef Bjorn Shen, chef LG Han, and chef Janice Wong. Leading the series is the Singapore-based storytelling platform and content studio CreatorsLab.

“We are pleased to collaborate with Netflix Southeast Asia, PCCW, SBS Australia, and Mediawan to bring ‘Chefs Uncut’ to viewers around the world," Jon Lister, CEO and co-founder of CreatorsLab, stated in a report by MarketersMEDIA. "The series not only highlights the exceptional talents of the featured chefs but also serves as a cultural exploration of the diverse culinary landscape in Asia—a story which is rarely told to the global audience.”

In March 2023, Toyo Eatery and chef Jordy brought pride to the Philippines by being part of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants list and taking home the Flor de Caña Sustainable Restaurant Award, an honor “given to the restaurant with the highest environmental and social responsibility rating.”
