Not always the title of

"chef" or "cook"

fills the bearer with glory.

Not because being the creator of wonders that delight the palate is not a small thing.

On the contrary.

But because the closet of stories is full of "master chefs", real or fictional, with a

bad reputation

.

The cinema has given us aberrational scenes of cooks not suitable for delicate stomachs.

Consider

“The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and His Mistress”

from 1989, by Peter Greenaway.

Dragged to be part of a revenge (do not regret the

spoiler

, dear reader, that the film is already 34 years old) "the cook" receives the order to bake what would be "the lover" of "the woman" so that "the thief ”

eat it

.

Another film that uses the arts of cooking for repulsive purposes is Tim Burton's

“Sweeney Todd, The Devil Barber of Fleet Street”

.

The barber is Johnny Depp, who cooks

meat pies

with the clients he kills at his barbershop.

In Game of Thrones, no one will forget when Arya Stark prepares an "appetizing" human

pie 

to feed one of the most nefarious characters in the saga.

On the OnMilwaukee site, chef Justin Johnson wryly admits that cooks, if they aren't cooks, could be serial killers.

And he recounts, to justify his hypothesis, the stoicism with which chefs cut up chickens, veal legs, whole fish and cut a live lobster in half.

"Cannon fodder"


This brings us to another “cook”, perhaps the bloodiest of all: Yevgeny Prigozhin, Vladimir Putin's “chef”.

Yevgeny Prigozhin, Vladimir Putin's “chef”.

Prigozhin does not dismember chickens, but he

provides "cannon fodder" to the war

that Putin is waging in Ukraine.

Founder of the "Wagner" mercenary group, Prigozhin would have already sent between 20,000 and 40,000 inmates from Russian prisons to the front who do not need to be taught how to annihilate.

They already know it by trade.

They are hordes of alienated thrown to the front with the order to kill and not return.

One Ukrainian soldier described them as zombies: "It's like that movie World War Z. They walk on the dead bodies of their comrades. To me, they take drugs. They don't feel afraid. They don't care if they get killed. They just

break down when they can't walk

. " .

But

why would they have made

Prigozhin a chef?

Well, they say that his beginnings go back to a hot dog stand, a "very successful" business. So much so that he ended up organizing the Kremlin banquets and, later, feeding the alienated desires of the autocratic Russian president.
