A documentary film about army cooks and how the everyday needs of thousands of armed stomachs affect the victories and defeats of statesmen. It is about the field kitchen as a model of a world where food preparation becomes a combat strategy; the battle for great ideals standing on the strong legs of the kitchen table. The film is built upon eleven recipes from military cooks since the Second World War till the war in Chechnya, from France through the Balkans to Russia.
