Japanese customers will soon have the ability to order from a new cooking show

If you've ever wished you could eat the food that a professional chef was making on TV, Amazon is working on a way to make that demand happen.

The e-commerce giant is creating a new cooking show for its Japanese market that will allow users to directly order food they see. The show will be produced by Yoshimoto Kogyo, a major Osaka-based entertainment conglomerate, and will be about Japanese cuisine from all parts of the country and will feature some local celebrities. Not all food items on the show will be available for purchase, and they can only be purchased by those living in Japan and other local areas through Amazon.co.jp.
