The hardest channel to part with when I decided to cut the cord on cable was hands down the Food Network, with honorable mentions for Bravo (Top Chef) and CNN (Parts Unknown). While watching previous episodes of Anthony Bourdain's Emmy-winning series on Netflix whet my appetite for exploring cultures and cuisines for a while, once I'd seen each episode two (or maybe three) times, I knew I needed to add some new titles to my watch list. And luckily Netflix is a foodie's dream

From an inspiring documentary about a dedicated sushi chef to a fascinating film about the crazy crime that shook the wine world, these flicks streaming on Netflix are so good that you don't have to consider yourself a foodie to enjoy them. Filled with heart, humor, and humanity, these watch list–worthy documentaries are as much about food as they are about the people who make it and enjoy it. Ahead, discover nine documentaries that will make you want to grab a fork (and a wineglass).
