Greetings from Tier 3 lockdown in London! I am hunkering down for winter hibernation and planning some concentrated work on the Vincent Price Co*Star Cookbook. I now have a deadline for delivering all the recipes, headnotes and feedback from all the test cooks. Deadline is Vincent Price’s birthday May 27th – eek!
It feels a little strange that work on the Murder, She Cooked book has to go on hiatus, but I remind myself that Jessica is still sitting there at her typewriter, and will be patiently waiting until I get a chance to get back to her…
When my co-writer Peter of the the Vincent Price Legacy UK was sent this recipe by Brett Halsey himself, I was keen to try it as sweetcorn is one of my absolute favourite foodstuffs. I can testify that this was super delicious!
I had quite a dainty portion of this on the evening I made it…
but as it was hanging around in my fridge for quite a while, I just couldn’t resist having huge spoonfuls of it every time I went into to the kitchen. IT IS KORN KRYPTONITE! I forced myself to freeze a few portions otherwise I was just going to eat the whole lot by myself. That would just be really greedy right?!
Last night I grabbed some from the freezer, wrapped it in foil and heated it up. It was just as good as when I first made it.
So the recipe has presented me with an interesting conundrum. How many people would this dish of corn fabulousness serve? Brett’s recipe didn’t specify. I think I am going to say 6-8 as a side dish. I am not sure any mortal, even one as corn obsessed as I am could eat a whole quarter of this dish even as a main course. But then again, maybe!
Thanks Brett – your recipe is fabulous!
I am tweaking the recipe, but if you would like it before the book is out, just drop me a line via the Contact Page and I’ll send it on over. If you would like to test a recipe for us, these are the ones currently available.
Everyone is welcome; it’s such a fun thing to be part of. I will send you the recipe and a feedback form – you’ll get an acknowledgement in the book and undying love from me!
