CHICAGO — Famed chef Grant Achatz and his innovative, beautiful culinary masterpieces are spotlighted in the newest season of Netflix's "Chef's Table."

"Chef's Table" focuses on individual chefs, highlighting the obstacles they've faced and what inspires them. Its second season, which devotes an hour to Achatz and Alinea in the first episode, was released on Netflix Friday.

In his turn on the show, Achatz talked about his battle with tongue cancer, which destroyed his sense of taste for a period of time, and his desire to challenge people's ideas of what food is and how it's served.

"Why do you have to eat with a fork or a spoon, and why does it have to be served on a plate or in a bowl? Why can't we come up with something new?" he says in the opening moments of his episode. "Rules? There are no rules. Do whatever you want."

Alinea was recently named the best restaurant in the world for the fifth straight year.
