Netflix Wants to Pay You to Travel and Photograph Food
Time to up your Instagram game.
It’s easy to poke fun at the people in restaurants who document their meals, but maybe they are just practicing for their dream job.
As Food & Wine reported, Netflix is getting ready to unveil season two of their foodie fantasy show Chef’s Table, and they are looking for an official Instagrammer to fly around the world and photograph the chefs preparing their feasts.
Netflix will send the winner to locations like Slovenia, Brazil, Thailand, and Mexico, to hang out with some of the greatest chefs in the world. Think Grant Achatz of Chicago’s Alinea, Alex Atala of São Paolo institution D.O.M., and Gaggan Anand, the man responsible for bringing modern Indian cuisine to Thailand.
As with everything that sounds too good to be true, there is a pretty big catch: This dream job is open only to residents of Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, India, and Southeast Asia. Before you let that kill your dream of getting this gig, keep in mind that the deadline for the job is June 27. That's plenty of time to move to Asia.
If you do live in Asia — or are willing to move there for your shot at living the food and travel lovers’ dream — it’s easy to apply for the position. Follow @NetflixAsia on Instagram and post your best food photo with the hashtag #mychefstable.
As Thrillist pointed out, Americans already had their shot at living the Netflix and ‘gram dream job back in March. So if moving to Asia long enough to establish residency isn’t in the cards, you’ll just have to travel and Instagram on your own — or just watch Chef’s Table at home and dream.
