Gene Tierney’s V-8

Here's a suggestion of a beverage to accompany Gene Tierney's Leaning Tower  of Tuna (aka Tuna Salad Royal).  A refreshing glass of V-8. I stumbled across a V-8 ad featuring Gene whilst writing the previous post and that of course, sent me down a huge research rabbit...

Joe Santos’ One Hot Italian Night

Joe Santos’ One Hot Italian Night

I do love a recipe with a weird title, and this one was rustled up on One Cold British Night to much acclaim.  I had a DINNER GUEST.  This is such a rare occurrence in pandemic times that I was excited for days beforehand. There is a feeling here in the UK at the...

Marsha Hunt’s Ham – With Love

Fancy a boozy breakfast?  I can recommend this bonkers recipe. I do so love a recipe with a weird title and Marsha is in Murder, She Wrote so this was a MUST for the forthcoming Murder, She Cooked book. I also love a recipe that is effectively a menu too.  Everything...

Shelley Winters’ Caesar Salad

Shelley Winters’ Caesar Salad

I am a sucker for a Caesar and have tried a few movie star versions.  Grace Kelly's was so good it was Recipe of the Month way back in April 2019, Ruth Roman's method calls for coddled eggs and Jessica Walter's garlic oil required a bit of forward planning.  And so it...

Gloria Stuart’s Huacamale

Gloria Stuart’s Huacamale

Avocado on toast, 1930s style!  This is a brilliant way of using up an avocado that is past its best. Shove it through a sieve then mix some other stuff into it. You can either make it quite runny and use it as a salad dressing or, do as I did, make it a bit thicker...

Supper with the Stars – the book is out!

The book is out and it is GORGEOUS! We just couldn't be prouder of it.  Peter has done an amazing job with all the film reviews and co-star biographies.  He had a great vision for how the book would look and he's totally made that happen. Ben Wickey's illustrations...

Dinner and a Movie – Tales From The Crypt

Una Stubbs’ Home-made Muesli​

I don't think I have ever republished an old post, but I was sad to hear yesterday that Una Stubbs had passed and I remembered this one about her muesli recipe.  First published in 2019.  There are some combinations of words that are nice to say together and for me,...
