One short chapter in the video tells the story of women in concentration camps who compiled a book of recipes during their days of starvation. A quarter loaf of bread per woman was given to them every three days and that was the only food they had.
It also has a section on murderers who are executed and what their last meal was. If you are about to die, food no longer has a purpose of keeping you alive but of giving you pleasure.
If food is a symbol of love
Then a recipe
passsed on to a unknown future
Is a message of hope.
