Cooking History

Peter Kerekes
Military cooks ? they are never mentioned in history books and yet they have helped to influence the course of history. Based on the recollections and personal destinies of these people, this film takes a look behind the scenes of the ?great? moments in time, otherwise known as conventional history, and introduces a new angle on twentieth century European history.
