Credited cast:


Nothing seems to be going right for the busy cook. He has several helpers, but they are mostly talking and laughing and doing little, so, when an old beggar asks for a hand out, the harried cook boots him out. The beggar returns in his true aspect, he's a wizard, and all Hell breaks loose. An imp ruins the soup with too much spice, and the cook blames his helpers. The wizard conjures more imps, and various chases and tricks ensue as the imps pop in and out of the cook's large oven. Havoc reigns. Written by <>

Cooking with Georges Melies
19 July 2012 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

A bearded cook and his three helpers are busy preparing something good to eat. Another helper arrives a sack of supplies, likely more food. Obviously, this group is not starving. While the helpers put away the shopping bag, an old beggar enters. The beggar takes off his hat and motions that he is hungry, but the bearded cook kicks him in the derrière. When the cook turns his back, the beggar turns into a wizard. He casts a spell on the cook. Devilish beings join the wizard in wreaking havoc for the greedy cook. They set out to ruin whatever is cooking, with special effects from filmmaker Georges Melies...
