Netflix TV Food You Can Eat


Today there are more than 74,4 million subscribers in the U.S. and Canada to Netflix.  If success does leave clues and it does Netflix has picked up enough clues to continue to drive top line sales and bottom-line profits.

 According to Steven Johnson Grocerant Guru® at Tacoma WA based Foodservice Solutions®, “Netflix has become the leading ‘food forward’ company in the U.S. by developing its ‘culinary space’.

It will not be long before you can say that; You watched it. You wanted it. Now, You Get it Delivered.

Here is what was recently reported; “Netflix on Last week announced it will create its first “culinary space” on June 30. The new Netflix Bites will open in Los Angeles and will feature food from the chefs you’ve come to love on the smaller screen from shows like “Chef’s Table,” “Iron Chef: Quest for an Iron Legend,” and “Is It Cake?”

From “Iron Chef,” for example, will be dishes from Curtis Stone, Dominique Crenn, Ming Tsai and Andrew Zimmern. From “Chef’s Table,” Rodney Scott and Ann Kim will contribute. Nadiya Hussain of “Nadiya Bakes,” is involved, as is Jacques Torres of “Nailed It!”

Drinks will be created by Frankie Solarik, Julie Reiner, LP O’Brien and Kate Gerwin of “Drink Masters.”

The chefs will team up for a special tasting menu at the venue in the Short Stories hotel near Los Angeles’ Farmer’s Market at The Grove, though the actual menu has not yet been revealed. Keep in mind that reservations require a $25 deposit (applied to the bill) and menu modifications will be politely declined. Also, the chefs will not be on site, the website notes.

Netflix has experimented with “immersive activations” tied to various shows in the past, like The Queen’s Ball: A Bridgerton Experience, as well as Stranger Things: The Experience, and Money Heist: The Experience.

Netflix Bites will have a limited-time run. But we think there are more opportunities to bring streaming shows to life with food, and not just with Netflix shows.

From “Yellowjackets,” there should be roasted, uh, meat and snowcones, for example.

St. Louis sushi—ham and cream cheese rolls stuffed with a pickle—make an appearance in “Somebody Somewhere” season two on HBO. Other bar options could include whiskey with a laudanum sidecar (“Outlander”).

There are the obvious s’mores (“The Menu”), Italian beef sandwiches and chocolate cake (“The Bear”), honeycomb cookies (“Squid Game”), and pastrami sandwiches (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”)

Netflix could revive dishes from Luke’s Diner (“Gilmore Girls”), as well as Bluth’s Frozen Banana (“Arrested Development,” nuts are 10 cents extra), and “Sex in the City’s” Magnolia Bakery cupcakes and Cosmos.

How food forward are you?  Brand messaging has evolved from the TV set to the front door. TV advertising is not dead but new avenues of distribution are opening up.
