To celebrate the launch of Mary and Vincent Price’s 50th Anniversary Edition of A Treasury of Great Recipes, you are hereby invited to a cookalong – wherever you are in the world – whenever you have a moment to cook!
Simply select one or more of the recipes below (or any other from the Treasury if you are lucky enough to have a copy), and post a Treasury themed blog entry before midnight on Saturday 7th November 2015.
The 50th Anniversary Edition will be launched on that date in Harrods in London (one of the London venues Mary and Vincent write about in the Treasury) and their daughter Victoria Price will be at Harrods signing copies of the new version of the book that day. There are a few places left for the tour of the food halls and brunch – join us!
