Vincent Price’s Cottage Fried Potatoes

Vincent Price’s Cottage Fried Potatoes

Potatoes fried in a large amount of butter are going to be good aren't they?  This is not clickbait to tease you into reading a disaster story about how potatoes fried in a large amount of butter turned out NOT to be good. Because they definitely were good (it is a...

Ellen Drew’s Ginger Ale Fruit Salad

Ellen Drew’s Ginger Ale Fruit Salad

Any recipe that includes pickle juice piques my pickle interest.  My fridge is FULL of pickle juice and because I love pickles so much, I make a lot of pickles and I eat a lot of pickles. It always seems a waste to chuck away all the delicious spiced vinegar once I've...

Tessie O’Shea’s Lettuce Sandwiches

Ahhh, it's the final recipe from the Tessie O'Shea Slimming Cookbook! In January 2019, I pledged to make one recipe a month from Tessie's book and what with one thing and another, it has taken me until now to do all 12, but it's been loads of fun. Her recipes are...

Kate Mulgrew’s Pork Tenderloin

Kate Mulgrew’s Pork Tenderloin

It was kind of unfortunate that I'd seen The Tingler (1959) just a few days before making this dish. Because I couldn't stop thinking about THE TINGLER every time I looked at this tenderloin. If you've seen that movie, you'll know what I mean.  If you haven't, I...

Five Alan Ladd Recipes

I love it when readers get in touch and ask for recipes and I am always happy to rummage around in my bookshelves to find them and send them out.  Usually I don't get so much as a "thank-you" in return, but sometimes - hurrah - a lovely correspondence ensues.  I am...

Ava Gardner’s Fried Fillets of Flounder

Have you ever seen anyone with a fishing rod look more gorgeous than Ava Gardner? Lest we assume Ava only donned the waders for a set of cheesecake photos, here she is with Gregory Peck "gone fishing". Naturally once I'd stumbled upon these pix, I wondered which other...

Sophia Loren’s Penne Alla Puttanesca

Sophia Loren’s Penne Alla Puttanesca

When I have some olives and anchovies knocking around the fridge my mind often suggests Spaghetti Puttanesca. I rustled this up just before Christmas and it was deliziosa (or maybe delizioso?). I don't eat much pasta, but when I do I always think, "bloody hell, it's...

Jean Seberg’s Christmas Eggnog

Jean Seberg’s Christmas Eggnog

Mr R does not like creamy sauces so I was almost certain that he wouldn't like this most festive of drinks. When I asked if he liked Eggnog, he said, "It's like that avocado stuff, isn't it?" By which he meant Advocaat of course. And yes, it is like that Advocaat...

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...

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...
