William Powell’s Vatrouskis

Being a guest on Hatty and Marc’s Silly Radio Show was SO MUCH FUN.  I really enjoyed our chinwag about all the stars and the food they liked to eat.  My favourite bit was when listeners could challenge me to see if I had a recipe for a particular star.  Can’t remember them all now, […]

William Powell’s Vatrouskis

  Hmmm – I overcooked some of these…  I made them for Ben and Polly’s wedding which was one of the loveliest weddings I’ve ever been too.  Ooooooooo there was a lot of love there! I had some of the mixture and pastry left over so I made a few for me and Jane to […]

William Powell’s Vatrouskis

The new recipe of the month is up and it’s a house favourite.  Vatrouskis.  I realise to my horror that I’ve been calling these VaStrouskis for about a year and the blog is littered with spelling mistakes to correct (ditto my crazy spelling of Anna May Wong which I still have to fix).  I feel […]

William Powell’s Vatrouskis

Silver Screen Suppers Towers is as clean as a new pin.  My parents are coming to visit for the very first time tomorrow and I want to make a very good impression.  It’s a big deal for me have taken the step to find somewhere to live on my lonesome and I really hope they […]

William Powell’s Vastroukis

Oh what a weekend!  A fantastic night out with Nazimova, Marijana, Sasha, Jasminka and many folk I haven’t seen for a long while jumping up and down to the Penny Black Remedy – man they ROCKED!  And to the other extreme, a photo shoot with three clasically trained musicians I’ll be performing with in the […]

William Powell’s Vastroukis, Rudolph Valentino’s Secret Spaghetti Sauce and Agnes Ayres’ Chocolate Mousse

What a lovely lunch on Sunday.  Jeanne was here from Atlanta – we had never met before but have corresponded about many Silver Screen Suppers recipes.  She makes me laugh like a drain with her emails and pictures of things like Gene Kelly’s Greatest Man Sandwich in the World with a big bite taken out […]

William Powell’s Vatrouskis version 2

I made a second batch of the Vatrouskis this morning and took them into work.  A big hit.  I may have to make another lot tomorrow as they went on the special “treats” spot around 9.40 and were gone by 9.45!  Might try a variation with filo pastry sometime.  Paulette’s suggestion that adding a few […]

William Powell’s Beets Piquants

Oh the lovely William.  His moustache puts me in mind of Charley’s.  I am so, so, so loving my new home.  Boxes everywhere and lots of scrabbling going on every time I need to find anything but I’m loving it. 10 year old Shirley popped in for a snoop around on Saturday and her reaction […]

William Powell’s Beets Piquants

“Cultivate solitude and quiet and a few sincere friends, rather than mob merriment, noise and thousands of nodding acquaintances.” I am trying to William, but it is DECEMBER and therefore I have the double whammy of Christmas and my birthday which, I’m afraid, always results in mob merriment. I guess I’ll just have to relax […]

William Powell’s Beets Piquant

“I highly recommend worrying. It is much more effective than dieting.” Well the worrying is over for Ginger. She exploded into the house yesterday evening with the fabulous news that she has scored a great new job with S&S. Yippee. We celebrated with a bowl of Beets Piquant and a glass of champagne. A very […]

William Powell’s Baked Artichokes

“Dessert is probably the most important stage of the meal, since it will be the last thing your guests remember before they pass out all over the table.” What are artichokes FOR? And how do they WORK? It remains a mystery. Although we did come to the conclusion that the fiddliness of the baked artichokes […]
