This is the very strange story of a King and his Cook. One day the King orders to the Cook to cook the Everything and promises to share it with him. But some ingredients are missing. So the Cook has to go out to find these missing ingredients. At his first journey dragged by a very strong wind he flies away. At the second journey after a big rain he is carried away by a torrent. And at the last one he falls into a deep well. After many adventures he comes back finally to the palace and cooks the Everything; but the King does not keep his word and began to eat alone and he gets too bulk that he overlays the whole palace. The Cook remains out of it. But some other surprises are waiting for him.
