Vincent Price’s Friday Chicken

Vincent Price’s Friday Chicken

Well, it's almost Friday folks! Mr R volunteered to test cook this recipe for the forthcoming Vincent Price Co*Star Cookbook. BUT, we both got so drunk on Gertrude Niesen Buzz-Bombs that I ended up doing it instead. There is something very satisfying about lifting the...

Kim Hunter’s Nutty Sole and Brown Rice

I love it when a blog reader gets in touch, via email, a message via the contact page, a comment on a post - anything! It's always lovely to hear from you, especially during this strange coronavirus time when I barely have any human contact during the week. My only...

George Segal’s Chicken Paprika

Oh, the joys of cooking with a dear friend! Even when they are miles away in a different part of London and you can only see a tiny WhatsApp picture of them on your mobile phone. I absolutely LOVED cooking along with Sanja as I know her kitchen well and have great...

Ron Masak’s Flemish Pork With Beer

Well yesterday was quite a day.  It all started quite peacefully with a walk in Highgate Woods... and ended with a raucous party for two in my kitchen.  Much booze was drunk,  much dancing was done and many transatlantic texts flew through the ether between me in...

Audrey Hepburn’s Gstaad’s Pesto

I cannot for the life of me remember why I decided to make Audrey's Pesto, but I am guessing it was because I had some basil hanging around in the fridge. I don't know about you, but as an urban fourth floor flat dweller with no herb garden, I am forced to buy fresh...

Jessica Fletcher Cheesecake Day!

Jessica Fletcher Cheesecake Day!

I love the way someone can decide that a certain date is International Spaghetti Day, or International Doughnut Day or my favourite of all - International Beer Day. Somehow these make their way into calendars of food and drink days all over the internet. I have...

Seven Errol Flynn Recipes!

When you wake up on a Tuesday morning during a pandemic and the news that greets you is that singing and dancing is now illegal in pubs it is easy to think that ALL FUN is cancelled. Now and forever. There is still fun to be had of course. But we are going to have to...

Natalie Wood’s Huevos Rancheros

Bored with the same old working from home lunch? I am finding it easy to be lazy about lunches. Toast is usually on the menu, and now the weather has changed I have rediscovered my passion for posh Cup-a-Soup, namely Szechuan Hot & Sour. But the other day I got a...

Vincent Price’s Iced Tea

Is it hot where you are? Here in the UK we are having an Indian Summer which is such a fillip. It is bright and sunny, and I'm still using my little portable desk fan. I am making the most of the lovely weather by spending an hour outside every day either walking...

Murder, She Wrote Hen Night

Murder, She Wrote Hen Night

I spent my hen night in prison. Cabot Cove Prison to be precise. Cast your mind back to a time before Covid-19. When you could invite 15 of your best friends round to ALL BE IN THE SAME ROOM AT THE SAME TIME without the police being called and you getting fined...

Pat Phoenix’s Jacket Potato

Pat Phoenix’s Jacket Potato

I am strangely obsessed with Pat's way of pimping a potato. It pops into my mind as something I fancy on a regular basis. I think I read in one of Sophia Loren's cookbooks that cheese with fish is a no-no in Italian cooking but I LOVE this combo on a potato. Pure...

Tessie O’Shea’s Brandy Ice Cream Coffee

It's the penultimate Tessie O'Shea recipe from the slimming cookbook! I pledged to try one a month from this excellent tome way back in January 2019 and I've almost done it. It's taken me ages to get around to making this because I didn't want to buy a huge vat of ice...

Richard Dix’s Sardine and Egg Salad

When I heard a couple of weeks ago that we won't be going back to the film archive until January 2021 at the earliest, I had a little meltdown. Six more months of working from home. I did the maths - I would be on my own five days a week for 27 more weeks at least....

Billie Burke’s Asparagus Salad

Billie Burke’s Asparagus Salad

Billie Burke sent me a secret message on a packet of cheese recently. It was pure chance I spotted it because let's face it who usually reads the back of a cheese packet? It was on the wrapping of a big chunk of Davidstow Cheddar. This is the cheddar I always buy...

Have you sorted out your social support bubble yet?  I saw mine last Saturday and it was a RIOT.  Mr R's sister and her husband came over and we had a boozy picnic.  OK, it was an indoor picnic because the weather wasn't great, but we had lots of picnic...

Diana Dors’ Flageolet Beans With Tuna

Mr Rathbone's sister recently told me that when her mum was pregnant with her, she craved Mivvis. I am going to ask my mum if she had any particular food cravings when she was pregnant with me. It will not surprise me at all if she says tuna. Whenever I stop plotting...

I hereby vow to make no more impulse buys from the "flash sales" section of my online groceries order. I really do love these fresh, herby anchovies but even though I used loads in the David Niven Jansson's Temptation recipe, the rest of the pack has been hanging...

Malik Yoba’s Rhythm and Beans and Squash Stew

I am getting a bit devil-may-care about recipes in these strange times. There are many ingredients I can't put my hands on at the moment for obvious reasons, but rather than ABANDONING recipes for lack of this or that, I am getting CRAFTY. I did not have a yam, but I...
