Koks-droomen

synopsis

The head cook, his female assistant and the cook's boy fall asleep after drinking a magic potion. A dwarf appears and cuts off their hands with a huge cheese-cutter. The severed hands start working. They cut the bread, clean the vegetables and wash the plates. The plates pile up and then spring into their places. Serviettes fold themselves up and rushes plait themselves to form a man. When the cooks awaken from their dreams and see that all their work has been done, they think that they must be going mad.
