Video of the Day: Cooking History – Film Trailer

Director Peter Kerekes brings to the cinematic table a documentary entitled Cooking History. Here’s the synopsis: This innovative film re-imagines Europe’s troubled past through the unheralded culinary workers who “catered” some of the pivotal armed conflicts of the modern era. Punctuated by recipes, cooking demonstrations and sometimes-fanciful interviews, this record of the quotidian details of military cuisine underscores the futility—and unfortunate persistence—of ethnic and political warfare. If this tickles your fancy, make sure to try and catch a screening as it passes through your area!
