Culinary Expert comes to the help of helpless housewife...
This is a rehash of a similar short produced a few years earlier called "Menu". Like the previous short, this one is also in Technicolor, much improved over the intervening years, and stars PRUDENCE PENNY, a culinary expert who specialized in home economics and wrote a column a Chicago newspaper.
As in the previous short, a housewife is badly in need of help before company arrives with her husband. She calls for the services of Prudence Penny, who shows up prepared to whip up a meal on short notice. The results look appetizing enough, especially in color.
Once again, the best feature of this short is the narration which manages to remain bright and witty throughout. By the time it's over, you may want to whip up a little snack for yourself.
