Vincent Price’s Oatmeal Lace Cookies

Vincent Price’s Oatmeal Lace Cookies

It’s been a while since there was a FAIL in the Silver Screen Suppers kitchen, but these cookies were most definitely a fail. I’d never made them before and I was making them in advance of my “Living My Life Like Angela Lansbury Day” (blog post...
Vincent Price’s Chicken Livers en Brochette

Vincent Price’s Chicken Livers en Brochette

It was the idea of TOAST POINTS that made me want to try this recipe.  I had never heard of such a thing before and now I am obsessed with the idea of serving TOAST POINTS with everything.  Not least because in a recently watched Murder, She Wrote, a waiter noted that...
Vincent Price’s Broiled Trout With Cucumber Salad

Vincent Price’s Broiled Trout With Cucumber Salad

My boss Alwyn goes fishing to relax.  When he talks about the pleasures to be had in the middle of the night standing in a river in the pitch black watching shooting stars it almost makes me want to do it myself.  However, these days I am usually tucked up in bed by...
Happy Halloween – Vincent Price’s Steak Au Poivre

Vincent Price’s Steak Au Poivre (Black Pepper Steak)

Vincent Price’s Steak Au Poivre (Black Pepper Steak)

I have been craving Steak Au Poivre ever since I had a conversation with my personal trainer Nige about it. Yes!  I have a personal trainer, and it is bloody brilliant.  The best thing about it is that after seeing Nige for a couple of months, I can actually do all...
Vincent Price’s Buckingham Eggs

Vincent Price’s Buckingham Eggs

This is one of those things that I get a mad craving for every now and then. Usually when I have a hangover on a Saturday. Which I did, last Saturday. Therefore, as I was home alone and I had all the wherewithal, I rustled some up. SOOOOOOOOO GOOD! Vincent’s...
Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

Whenever the Muswell Hill and District Horticultural Show rolls around (3 x per year) I always panic slightly about what cake to make to donate to the cake stall. Unlike Battenburgbelle, I am not a natural born cake maker.  I like making bread, I like making soup, I...
Vincent Price’s House Bread

Vincent Price’s House Bread

I have great affection for Vincent’s House Bread.  Not because it is the greatest loaf I ever made but because it is the FIRST loaf I ever made.  Way back in 2011 during the Vincentennial year – click here for my blog post about it. I was SO pleased with...

Happy 12th Birthday Silver Screen Suppers – my favourite dozen movie star recipes!

Happy 12th Birthday Silver Screen Suppers – my favourite dozen movie star recipes!

I can’t believe that I’ve been writing this blog for 12 years – goodness me.  So much has changed in that time.  When I began I was a broken-hearted singleton living on a houseboat on the Thames.  My tabletop cooker had to be turned on...
Boris Karloff’s Potted Shrimp

Boris Karloff’s Potted Shrimp

You need teeny tiny brown shrimp for this dish. I think that potted shrimp is a very, very British thing, and I’m not sure where else in the world you can get these little fellas. I’ve been doing some trawling around the net for info but I can’t work...
Vincent  Price’s Cioppino

Vincent Price’s Cioppino

If you have seen or read Julie and Julia you may remember that the Julia Child task that filled Julie Powell with the most fear was BONING A DUCK.  For me, the dish in the Cooking With Columbo book that most gave me the heebie-jeebies was this one, Cioppino....
Vincent Price’s Buckingham Eggs

Vincent Price’s Buckingham Eggs

I woke up craving these today, and luckily I had the wherewithal about the place to make them. I’m on a writing retreat this weekend. But a writing retreat in my own bed. Lovely. Not – actually – me. I consider Buckingham Eggs to be my ultimate...
Vincent Price’s Goulash

Vincent Price’s Goulash

I think we’ll be talking about Vincent’s Goulash recipe on the Museum of Soho radio show tomorrow from 10am, so I thought I’d put the recipe up. It is such a great thing to cook for Halloween – you can call it GHOULISH GOULASH. At the end of...

Vincent Price Buttermilk Waffles

Vincent Price Buttermilk Waffles

I can’t believe I’m only just now getting around to writing about these waffles as these were made YONKS AGO when my darling Caroline Frick was in the house, way back in April.  Over from Texas for a short visit, I set Dr Frick on waffle duty as she...
Vincent Price’s Le Gratin Savoyard

Vincent Price’s Le Gratin Savoyard

I made this dish recently because the caretaker of my building threw away my cauliflower. Yes, a perfectly good cauliflower. But I guess it was my fault. I’d put it out on the fire escape because my old dinky fridge was too full, and it was cold out there. When I...
Vincent Price Curry Demonstration Film

Vincent Price Curry Demonstration Film

I learned something fundamental last week. You cannot stir a curry with one hand and try and film it on your iPhone with the other. The saucepan spins and spins and spins!  Just like the little coloured spinning wheel of death I get on my computer screen all the...
Vincent Price’s Potato and Fish Chowder

Vincent Price’s Potato and Fish Chowder

I’ve been on a little holiday to Whitstable and very lovely it was too.  Four days in a fabulous and oh-so-peaceful little home from home, that was full of books and a beautiful orchid: It was a perfect place to write – and cook – and eat – and...

Vincent Price’s Beef and Cauliflower on Rice

Vincent Price’s Beef and Cauliflower on Rice

Vincent usually gets things absolutely perfect in his recipes, but this one was a bit screwy. Serves 6? Me and Vic ate the lot between the two of us! Perhaps we are just greedy…  Vic said: “Serves 6?  6 leprechauns maybe.” My ex is a...
Vincent Price’s Brunswick Chicken

Vincent Price’s Brunswick Chicken

More exciting news for Vincent Price fans! Some of you may know that Vincent and Mary’s Treasury of Great Recipes was reprinted and released in 2015 in a 50th anniversary edition. We had an amazing day here in London at Harrods for the book launch…...

Vincent Price’s Chicken Curry

For the Hedda Hopper night’s dinner, I was planning a whole feast of curries made with the lovely spice mixtures prepared before your very eyes at Rafi’s Spice Box in Sudbury. But on the morning of the day, an email popped into  my inbox...
Vincent Price’s Honey Buns

Vincent Price’s Honey Buns

There is something very appealing about the recipe title “Honey Buns”, so it was destined that I make them at some point, and make them I did, for the Muswell Hill and District Horticultural Society Spring Show.  Now then, the Spring Show was a LONG...
Vincent Price’s Hollandaise Sauce

Vincent Price’s Hollandaise Sauce

I’ve been trying to perfect poached eggs, Vincent Price style, throughout my holiday week.  We always treat ourselves to stonking great big brunches when we are in Mersea, like this: So every day I’ve been experimenting with Vincent’s method of...
Vincent (and Mary) Price’s Dark Mocha Cake

Vincent (and Mary) Price’s Dark Mocha Cake

This is probably the BEST movie star chocolate cake recipe ever, BUT, a word of warning, do not think you can get up early to make this, and still get into work on time.  That is not going to happen. Our much beloved work colleague Luke resigned recently, much to...
Vincent Price’s Fish Fillets Noord Zee

Vincent Price’s Fish Fillets Noord Zee

The lovely Peter Fuller has a fabulous new Vincent Price website and he asked me to write something about the glorious TV show that is Cooking Price-Wise, the series that my food hero presented on British TV in the 1970s. It was a really fun article to write, and for...
Vincent Price’s Bounty of Paradise Party

Vincent Price’s Bounty of Paradise Party

Vincent Price’s Croque Monsieur

Vincent Price’s Croque Monsieur

How was your Valentine’s Day?  I was single for 8 years, so know full well, that it is perfectly lovely to spend it all by yourself.  Now that I have the fabulous Mr Rathbone by my side though, I do like to pull out all the stops.  For breakfast I...
A Vincent Price Themed Party for Battenburg Belle

A Vincent Price Themed Party for Battenburg Belle

Do you have a freezer full of Christmas leftovers? For our work Xmas lunch, we went to The Queen’s Pub and Dining Room in Primrose Hill.  The turkey was really flavoursome, but the portion was massive, and there was no way I could eat it all, so I asked for...
Vincent Price Dinner at Abertoir

Vincent Price Dinner at Abertoir

Do you have a blog?  Are you thinking about it?  If you are, I would say DO IT, because magical things will start to happen.  During the Vincentennial year, when celebrations were going on to mark what would have been Vincent Price’s 100th...
Vincent Price’s East India Fish Curry

Vincent Price’s East India Fish Curry

My lovely chums David and Katy can get to my place “door to door on the 134” but we don’t see each other often enough.  Something to rectify in 2016 because I LOVE THEM.  They came round for dinner the other Friday and I vaguely remembered...

Joy, joy, joy!  Blog posts have popped up all around the world from the folks who joined in with the Treasury Cookalong.  It brought many a tear to my glass eye!  So much wondrousness! The cookalong was organised to celebrate the launch of the 50th...

Vincent Price’s Flan

Vincent Price’s Flan

An underwhelming name, for a seriously delicious pudding…  This was the final course of my Mexican Extravaganza last Sunday and a huge hit.  Everyone had a second slice. I mangled it a bit, getting it out of the flan pan. The term “flan...
Vincent Price’s Mexican Creamed Corn

Vincent Price’s Mexican Creamed Corn

This may well be my number one favourite of ALL Silver Screen Suppers dishes.  I absolutely ADORE this stuff and can eat it by the ladle-ful.  Recipe is at the end of this post.  I cannot recommend anything else you will find here as highly....

Vincent Price’s Barbecued Double Hamburgers

Vincent Price’s Barbecued Double Hamburgers

I had a lovely day off yesterday, spending it baking like a lunatic for today’s Muswell Hill and District Horticultural Society Autumn Show cookery contest.  I made 8 cakes!  Admittedly, 2 are for the cake stall, but I’ll have 6 in...
