Sorcellerie culinaire (original title)
Not Rated | | Short, Comedy, Fantasy
A cook has his hands full with three mischievous devils, who pop in and out of his kitchen.


Georges Méliès




Credited cast:
Georges Méliès


In a spacious and busy kitchen, an enthusiastic and highly-skilled professional head chef who can't afford to lose a second is interrupted by a weary vagabond looking for some spare change, and, perhaps, a little taste of his mouth-watering creations. But alas. The haughty executive culinarian will soon discover that looks can be deceiving--especially when the poor panhandler he has just kicked out--is a magnificent and powerful mage in disguise. With the sorcerer's black servants all over the place, can the cook appease the insulted feelings? Written by Nick Riganas

Cooking with Georges Melies
19 July 2012 | by wes-connorsSee 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...
