UK, 1961 (MIFF 1961, Programme 21)

Director: Gerry Poulson

This film, featuring the late Gilbert Harding, demonstrates that efficiency in the kitchen can be achieved without an array of expensive gadgets, and shows how planning can often result in a far more convenient arrangement of working surfaces and cooking and washing equipment.
