Vincent Price Dinner at Abertoir

Do you have a blog?  Are you thinking about it?  If you are, I would say DO IT, because magical things will start to happen.  During the Vincentennial year, when celebrations were going on to mark what would have been Vincent Price’s 100th year, I embarked upon a project to cook one of Vincent’s recipes per […]

Vincent Price’s East India Fish Curry

My lovely chums David and Katy can get to my place “door to door on the 134” but we don’t see each other often enough.  Something to rectify in 2016 because I LOVE THEM.  They came round for dinner the other Friday and I vaguely remembered that some time ago I’d made them a Vincent […]

Vincent Price’s Flan

An underwhelming name, for a seriously delicious pudding…  This was the final course of my Mexican Extravaganza last Sunday and a huge hit.  Everyone had a second slice. I mangled it a bit, getting it out of the flan pan. The term “flan pan” makes me think of Fred Fannakapan, a name my dad sometimes […]

Vincent Price’s Mexican Creamed Corn

This may well be my number one favourite of ALL Silver Screen Suppers dishes.  I absolutely ADORE this stuff and can eat it by the ladle-ful.  Recipe is at the end of this post.  I cannot recommend anything else you will find here as highly.  Except maybe I will, in a couple of months when […]

Vincent Price’s Guacamole

Last Sunday I gave what I have decided was my BEST EVER DINNER PARTY.  Heather and Nathan, Ptolemy and Keith came over for a Mexican extravaganza.  Oh my.  What a delicious combination of Mexican inspired loveliness.  Ptolemy wore a suitably Mexican flouncy frock and made the Vincent Price Guacamole for me as I’d bitten off […]

Vincent Price’s Chicken Sweet and Hot

Aaarg!  I think this has immediately become my favourite of all movie star chicken recipes.  Apologies to Elizabeth Taylor who was previously the holder of the title for * best movie star chicken recipe ever * (as her Chicken Steamed in White Wine is divine).   Chicken Sweet and Hot, was absolutely delicious.  The chicken I […]

Vincent Price’s Barbecued Double Hamburgers

I had a lovely day off yesterday, spending it baking like a lunatic for today’s Muswell Hill and District Horticultural Society Autumn Show cookery contest.  I made 8 cakes!  Admittedly, 2 are for the cake stall, but I’ll have 6 in competition.  Yikes.  I am particularly pleased with my Yul Brynner Apple Walnut Cake (recipe […]

Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

Ooh, I think I have perfected the non-cup measurements, for this best of all cakes.  I misread my scribbled post it note, stuck on the page of The Treasury of Great Recipes, from when I made it last time.  I used a lot more flour than in theory I should have.  The texture of the cake […]

I’ve been craving this for ages and as I’m testing recipes for the forthcoming Vincent & Mary Price’s Treasury of Great Recipes Virtual Reality Book Launch Party Cookalong, I made it tonight for my din dins.  If anyone can think of a catchier title for my cookalong than the Vincent & Mary Price’s Treasury of […]

Vincent Price’s Crostata Di Mele (Apple Tart)

The Muswell Hill and District Horticultural Society Summer Show was loads of fun.  It’s not as mad as the Spring show, as there are less cooking categories, nevertheless there was some bonkers last minute rushing around yesterday morning to get everything ready. I got two firsts, one for my greengage jam (recipe from The Cottage Smallholder) […]

Vincent Price’s Toad in the Hole

Tonight I’ve been practising my mini toad in the holes for Saturday’s Strolling Supper Club.  I’m joining forces with Battenberg Belle and Davie from Seven Songs  to raise money for the Alice Youth Music Memorial Fund. We’ll be having cocktails and canapés in the “secret garden” behind my flat, then strolling round to BB’s for a slap up […]

Vincent Price’s Baked Whole Sea Bass

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the Mersea Island fishermen sell some of their catch directly from the quayside between 2.45 and 4.30pm.  So we bundled down there to get ourselves some fresh fish. There were some lovely looking flat fish such as lemon sole, dabs, an unidentified thing with claws, skate wings, sea bass and lots […]

Vincent Price’s French Bread

Exciting plans are falling into place for Victoria Price’s visit to London in November, to launch the 50th anniversary edition of her parents’ wonderful book; A Treasury of Great Recipes.  I’ve been helping to organize a couple of events for Victoria and her VIP guests, and it’s going to be just fabulous. The lovely Bruce […]

Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

The name of this cake doesn’t do it justice.  If I had the power to go back in time, I might suggest to Mary and Vincent that it should be known as “The Price’s Divine Pineapple and Macadamia Nut Cake”.  It’s my favourite film star cake.  I love it. It was the first cake baked […]

Vincent Price’s Scotch Shortbread

I was single for 8 years (with some little hiccups along the way) so I do know what it’s like when Valentine’s Day is on the horizon and you haven’t got a significant other.  But this year, as last, I do have a lovely Valentine and I’m very happy about that.  So tonight I made […]

Vincent Price’s Buckingham Eggs

It’s my annual spinster’s day!  I do so love to have a day to myself now and then, doing exactly whatever the hell I like.  Today is such a day.  I am on annual leave, and still in my pyjamas at 1pm with no intention of getting out of them. I’ve done my weekly drawing.  […]

Vincent Price’s Genoa Pizza

Have you ever had haggis on a pizza?  I did on Burns Night and it was DELICIOUS!  It was my chum Nathan who came up with this idea and he guided me through the process at a pizza extravaganza for 6 at Silver Screen Suppers Towers on Burns’s birthday. Whisky sauce made to this recipe, […]

Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

My life has been changed forever by this book, I hope… A fair bit of toot and 30 books have left the building already, and there will be more sliding out the door over the next 6 months.  For that’s how long the process is going to take methinks, but I am ON IT.  As […]

Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

It’s the One Reeler Film Club at the Cinema Museum tonight so I have made a cake.  It smells and looks delicious but I’ve never made it before so I’ll have to wait until tonight to find out how it tastes.  If it is good, I will return and type up the recipe here. Mmmmm. […]
