• Short Summary

    Great story shows us how to prepare appetising food for a picnic.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'NOW THE Special Pathe Pictorial Section for the Ladies - Picnic Days'.

    Pathe Studio, London.

    On a set dressed to look like a kitchen we see various shots of a woman making food for picnics. First she makes sausage rolls, and we hear some tips from the commentator on how to give them that professional touch. The woman puts the sausage rolls in the oven. When they are cooked she puts them on a wire rack to cool then sets them out on a plate.

    Next we see a plate full of "tasty little patties", filled with prawns, olives or anchovies. Then we are shown how to cut bits of cucumber into baskets and fill with cheese and mayonnaise. The girl makes some individual fruit jellies then prepares a green salad.

    Cut to the woman eating her lovely picnic food in the countryside (the real thing, not a set) with her two young sons. Their wonderful 30s car is parked beside the picnic rug.

    Note: female commentator.
