The world is made of those who eat and those who are eaten. Raimundo Nonato finds an alternative way: he cooks. He cooks first in a bar, then in an Italian Restaurant and then in prison. He cooks and learns how to get by in a society split between those who eat and those who are eaten. What he learns, are a series of rules he uses to his advantage: in the end, the cook must also get his share of food � and he knows better than most which part tastes best. An adult fable on power, sex and cooking.
