Storyline

Explored through the lenses of the four natural elements - fire, water, air and earth - COOKED is an enlightening and compelling look at the evolution of what food means to us through the history of food preparation and its universal ability to connect us. Highlighting our primal human need to cook, the series urges a return to the kitchen to reclaim our lost traditions and to forge a deeper, more meaningful connection to the ingredients and cooking techniques that we use to nourish ourselves. Written by Netflix

Tendentious
26 September 2017 | by jorgitovkSee all my reviews

The initial approaching is quite exciting, an anthropologist journey into the origins of the cuisine culture itself,... I like the idea.

Unfortunately you will find yourself socked by the prejudice male sexist speech of the author. All served with abundant ethnocentrism, and 'pearls' like "how barbecue's build our manhood" and worse. Very offensive for women, and an insult to the intelligence and critical thinking in general.
