“Buttocks divine!” This is what my great-grandmother would call a delicious dish. Honestly!


Angelos Spartalis, all alone, in a real kitchen, talks to himself while cooking real food for real people, sharing it with the universe, filming himself and his obsessions. Often, he invades the kitchens of his unsuspicious friends and makes them cook on camera. Or he visits exotic destinations in Greece and abroad supposedly to study people’s culinary habits.

The only son of a Cretan mother and an Egyptiot father, Spartalis grew up in Germany. Painter, filmer, a graduate of engineering and aeronautics, father of two daughters who boldly acknowledge him as their dad, Spartalis carries within him a chaotic gastronomic and political universe on which he is trying – in vain - to impose some sort of order.

On the pretext of cooking this show casts a furtive wayward glance at burning philosophical issues like “who are we?”, “why do we exist?”, “is there life on other planets?” and many more, usually in a sprightly batty mood. Because “optimism is the haven of intelligence and kindness”.
