"It’s fun to eat" with Elena

About This Item

KPIX-TV cooking program, produced in San Francisco by Richard Dinsmore, featuring scenes of Elena Zelayeta and her son Billy demonstrating how to prepare a pickled tuna recipe using 'fresherator' cookware products. This program was filmed by Willat and Diner to air in the Los Angeles area and was written by Jean Welke. It is of note that Elena was blind and had strings attached to her ankles on-set. There were two cameras filming her and when she needed to turn from one camera to another, someone would tug on the appropriate string to let her know (S.F. Examiner, 2/3/1953).

This is wonderful!! Many thanks to Elena and Billy for sharing their culinary expertise with all of us.

Just bought one of her cookbooks and I was so happy to find this video to be able to see her in action. 

Thank you to whomever made this available to all.
