Storyline

In the delicate hands of an inspired and picky gourmet chef or a dedicated foodie, a ripe avocado fruit screams "Guacamole", Mexico's famous spread. The recipe is quite simple. After halving and dicing the avocado, you chop some coriander, a small onion, and a juicy red tomato. Of course, don't forget the indispensable chilli pepper and a splash of lime. ¡Buen provecho. Written by Nick Riganas

Refreshing Use of Stop Action
27 July 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I won't do any describing of this because it will sound ridiculous. But in reality, it is a seamless, outrageous little two minutes that will be hard to forget. Every little bit fits magically into what seems like an actual recipe; it is colorful and unique in every way.
