When I started writing about 11 best food documentaries on Netflix streaming in 2015, I was very excited. Because, let face it, most of us enjoy eating and food. I thought it would be all about famous chefs and their recipes and I was really looking forward to it.
However, as my research went along, I was getting more depressed. While there are few flicks in the list about restaurants and meal preparation, the vast majority of best food documentaries on Netflix is about the agriculture and the part of the food chain we don’t often get to see. It is about the food before it reaches the supermarket shelves and let me tell you, it isn’t pleasant. In fact, most of it is downright disgusting and honestly terrifying. If ever was a topic completely unsuitable for Netflix and chill, this is it. Well, there are best serial killers documentaries as well, but I’ve been told that some people may actually enjoy Netflix and chill while watching those.
To rank 11 best food documentaries on Netflix streaming in 2015, we had to devise a system. Going simply by IMDb rating just wouldn’t cut it, although we did include it in our final ranking. We also scoured dozen of lists on most popular sites in order to get an accurate feel on public opinion. We mixed it all together and came up with a genuine Insider Monkey ranking. If you want to know more about the impact modern agriculture has on our planet, you should check out some of the best environmental documentaries on Netflix.
