Happy Halloween – Vincent Price’s Steak Au Poivre

The lovely folks at my local emporium of meat, Morley’s Butcher in Crouch End, have a great piece on their website about this fabulous recipe.  Skip over to their blog for all the details and cook yourself up a delicious steak for your Halloween din dins!

There will be another Vincent related post coming very soon, with some great photos from a blog reader in Germany and a video demonstration of how to make a Vincent Price curry – whoopee!

Until then my friends, wish me luck cooking this crazy dish this evening.

That’s right, that is a WHOLE chicken in that there pumpkin!

Have fun tonight trick or treating, or watching scary movies, or whatever you choose to do.  In the meantime, have fun trying to put a name to all these Halloween lovelies…

    I got all but one but I did have to cheat on number 5 🙂

    And good luck with the chicken in a pumpkin! I look forward to seeing how it turns out. I’ve made a de-constructed soup in a pumpkin before- I suppose it’s just the next step on from that!

    In the spirit of turducken, is that a pumpricken?

    The steak au poivre looks luscious!

    Will you reveal the actresses in your next post? The first two are easy and I’m pretty sure I got the last one, but the middle three photos are pretty small and I’m curious.

      Hi Melanie

      I am laughing, laughing, laughing at the word PUMPRICKEN and will definitely sprinkle that liberally around my post about the construction of this crazy dish.

      I WILL reveal the answers to the Hollywood Halloween lovelies in the pumpricken post! I couldn’t get the little pix any bigger for some reason.

    Haha – well done Hazel! Yep, I thought 5 would be the biggest challenge. I’ve already forgotten who it is!

    Chicken in a Pumpkin was MAD! Full report coming soon. Love the idea of soup in a pumpkin – I’d have to get someone else to carry it from my kitchen to the dining table though I reckon xx
