Here are the Hollywood celebrities we spotted in Austin for SXSW, plus other top stories

Austin is proud to claim chef Kristen Kish as her chef, but the Top Chef winner has always had a global mindset. She earned her first successes in French and Italian cuisine at the renowned Menton restaurant in Boston and brought these influences to the Arlo Gray menu with a pioneering curiosity and spirit of adventure. Now she takes this explorer’s mindset to a new level National Geographic Series, premiering Tuesday, April 21

Available on Disney+, Restaurants at the end of the world is a docuseries about Kish traveling to remote corners of the planet. The four-part series follows Kish on her quest to find the secret ingredients – people, places, culture and traditions – in the world’s most remote restaurants in Boquete, Panama; Svalbard, Norway; North Haven Island, Maine; and Paraty, Brazil.

A lucky selection of attendees from South by Southwest (SXSW) got a sneak peak at the series at a special dinner on Tuesday, March 14th. The event took place at the Arlo Gray in the Line Hotel, where Kish mingled with the guests and presented clips from the upcoming series. A family-style dinner featured dishes inspired by various episodes of the series, from Maine-inspired Parker House buns to arctic char and strawberry semifreddo.

“This series is all about shared experiences and trading stories,” Kish said, introducing the dinner menu. “As I put this menu together, I realized that there are many similarities. Thinking back to all the places I’ve visited and new things I’ve learned, there are so many familiar flavors in every bite that can take you straight home into your own story.”

The menu celebrated every location in the upcoming series, often in the same aisle: Parker House Rolls (with delicious whipped brown butter) were a nod to her New England episode (“Maine Island Barn Supper”), paired with a scallop crudo -Commemorating her time in Brazil (“Brazil’s Floating Feast”). Meanwhile, the main course gave guests a glimpse of the hard work Norwegian fishermen put into catching arctic char, accompanied by a clip of Kish’s adventures with local suppliers in Svalbard, Norway.

The goal of both Dinner and the upcoming series is to demonstrate the persistence it takes to run restaurants in such remote locations. Each episode follows Kish behind the scenes with local suppliers, farmers, herdsmen, kitchen crews, managers and chefs to hear their stories. She invites viewers to join her in her quest for the finest and freshest ingredients, to discover the culture and heart behind global cuisine, and to demonstrate the balancing act required to bring dishes that are unique to the world to the table.

“Food has an unparalleled power to bring us together and teach us about each other and the world around us, and we see that firsthand when we visit restaurants in the most remote corners of the world,” says chef Kish, per the release. “Filming this series with National Geographic was an adventure of a lifetime that taught me so much about an industry that has been my lifelong passion. I can’t wait for viewers to join us on the journey and experience these dishes in restaurants most didn’t even know existed.”

The first episode of restaurants around the world will be available on March 21st at 9pm CST.
