3 Men - 1 Ox - 1000 Glasses - 2 Weeks
The cookery show that's a little diff erent, theTV-sensation that's a little diff erent: 3 amateurcooks - food critic Florian Holzer, artist ThomasNowak and photographer Ingo Pertramer - decideto buy an organic ox, slaughter it themselves andprocess it within two weeks.The challenge is to cook a whole ox. From start tofi nish, from head to toe. So the performers buy aliving animal from the green Alps, slaughter it, butcherit and during a two-week open-air cooking-sessionprocess, turn it into durable and appetizingpreserved meat. It's made durable not least to showthat the supermarket shelf isn't a foregone conclusion.The meat is smoked and dried, but mainlyboiled down - in dozens of diff erent varieties andwith tons of recipes. Classically and through all theworld's cuisines.The idea sounds simple, but it proves to be a raceagainst time, inner resistance, technical problemsand culinary confl icts. In eight episodes, a projectthat was about curing the meat of an animal thatgrew up happily, using classical methods and thebest recipes, turns into the most sensitive cookeryshow in TV history.
