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 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

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 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

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

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...

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.  Except maybe I will, in a...

Vincent Price’s Chicken Sweet and Hot

Vincent Price’s Chicken Sweet and Hot

Aaarg!  I think this has immediately become my favourite of all movie star chicken recipes.  Apologies to Elizabeth Taylor who was previously the holder of the title for * best movie star chicken recipe ever * (as her Chicken Steamed in White Wine is...
Vincent Price’s Barbecued Double Hamburgers

Vincent Price’s Barbecued Double Hamburgers

Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

Ooh, I think I have perfected the non-cup measurements, for this best of all cakes.  I misread my scribbled post it note, stuck on the page of The Treasury of Great Recipes, from when I made it last time.  I used a lot more flour than in theory I should...
Vincent Price’s Crostata Di Mele (Apple Tart)

Vincent Price’s Crostata Di Mele (Apple Tart)

The Muswell Hill and District Horticultural Society Summer Show was loads of fun.  It’s not as mad as the Spring show, as there are less cooking categories, nevertheless there was some bonkers last minute rushing around yesterday morning to get...
Vincent Price’s Toad in the Hole

Vincent Price’s Toad in the Hole

Vincent Price’s Baked Whole Sea Bass

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the Mersea Island fishermen sell some of their catch directly from the quayside between 2.45 and 4.30pm.  So we bundled down there to get ourselves some fresh fish. There were some lovely looking flat fish such as lemon sole, dabs, an...

Vincent Price’s French Bread

Vincent Price’s Coq Au Vin Rouge a L’Avergnate

“That is chicken supreme”, said Mr R about this dish, and he also pointed out that there’s no need to panic about it, if you have left it overnight in your fire escape. I shall explain.  I made this on a Saturday as I had 5 guests coming for dinner...
Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

The name of this cake doesn’t do it justice.  If I had the power to go back in time, I might suggest to Mary and Vincent that it should be known as “The Price’s Divine Pineapple and Macadamia Nut Cake”.  It’s my favourite film...
Vincent Price’s Scotch Shortbread

Vincent Price’s Scotch Shortbread

I was single for 8 years (with some little hiccups along the way) so I do know what it’s like when Valentine’s Day is on the horizon and you haven’t got a significant other.  But this year, as last, I do have a lovely Valentine and I’m...

Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

My life has been changed forever by this book, I hope… A fair bit of toot and 30 books have left the building already, and there will be more sliding out the door over the next 6 months.  For that’s how long the process is going to take methinks, but...
Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

It’s the One Reeler Film Club at the Cinema Museum tonight so I have made a cake.  It smells and looks delicious but I’ve never made it before so I’ll have to wait until tonight to find out how it tastes.  If it is good, I will return and...

These are BRILLIANT! I’ve been meaning to have a go at these for years, and I finally got around to it. Partly because a little jar of these have been earmarked as one of my competition prizes. They will be heading to the States sometime soon. I gave a little jar to...
Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

Vincent Price’s Saffron Rice

I like a rice you bake in the oven, especially when it is baking hot in the kitchen.  Mine gets very hot and steamy if there are lots of things on the hob and at the moment in the UK we are having a HEATWAVE.  It’s lovely. For the book group I had made the...
