Al Dente

Al Dente is an Italian term for 'to the tooth,' used primarily to describe when pasta is cooked exactly right. Directed by by Jean-François Barthélémy, Carlos Felipe Léon Ortiz & Maël François, Al Dente is the story of a young lad who stumbles into the kitchen of a very twisted chef who intends to make him part of his next meal.

There's some definite elements of this short that are reminiscent of Disney's Fantasia, including the chef commanding the foods around his kitchen in a style similar to the Mickey in the Sorcerer's Apprecntice and a strong emphasis on a musical score.
