Cary Grant Mushroom Canapés for the Cary Grant Festival

Book Test Cook 5 – Cary Grant’s Tuna Fish Pie

Cary Grant’s Tuna Fish Pie

Mmmm. The Tuna Pie was good. Little pastry biscuits on top. Yum, yum. I’m looking for an alternative Cary recipe for the book to replace the apple pie. He’s got some good ones too. He’s a man who loved his fish. This could be the one. Chicken of the Sea in a pie. It’s a […]

Cary Grant’s Steak a la Victor Hugo

“You’re just a bunch of molecules until you know who you are.” I’m trying to work it out Cary, honestly I am… So the double boiler was put to its second use of the weekend – attempting for a second time to make the weirdo sauce that TWO stars have published as a favourite recipe. […]
