We know what you’re probably thinking. “Cooks AND chefs in a single film?? Sure, you might be able to pull it off if we were talking one or the other. Just cooks, or just chefs. And that’s still a big ‘might.’ But to bring both together in one short? WHEN DID THE WORLD GO SO MAD?!?” Well, despite what your surprisingly aggressive hypothetical probable thoughts would have you believe, Cooks and Chefs is here to prove you wrong.
It’s a timeless training film for anyone aspiring to work in a restaurant, and more specifically one particular hotel’s restaurant where they only serve food so rubbery and fake-looking it’s indistinguishable from the centerpieces. So if that’s the job you’re looking for, your ship has just come in! Cooks and Chefs is full of helpful tips for the up-and-coming culinary professional. For example, did you know that it’s completely normal and expected for line cooks to be skilled ice sculptors? Well it is, so make sure and spend years training under a master before you even bother turning in that McDonald’s application, bucko.
Ever since seeing the atrocities committed against food in Cooks and Chefs, Mike, Kevin and Bill have been fasting* in protest.
