When I volunteered for the Vincent Price Blogathon I had grand plans of throwing an elaborate dinner party with many dishes gleaned from Vincent’s fabulous cookbooks. Remember the days when you could have chums over for food and fun?

I could have kicked off proceedings with a Vincent Price Cucumber Crocodile as I so often do…

Or created a sumptuous menu following one of Vincent’s International Cookery Course LPs

But of course, we are living through strange days and the chance to whoop it up with a big bunch of buddies seems a long way away at the moment. Instead, I made a video talking a little bit about Vincent’s brilliant cookbooks and demonstrating how to make one of Vincent’s concoctions, a Pink Tonic (see video at the bottom of this post).

In the video I share BIG NEWS with the world! Peter Fuller of The Vincent Price Legacy UK and I are very excited to announce that we are working on this…

Oh great joy!

Now may seem a strange time to be putting a call out for test cooks, and I am aware that certain ingredients may be difficult to obtain, but hey, we must all be resourceful at this time! Choose yourself a recipe, see how many of the ingredients you can beg, borrow or steal and join us for fun times in your own home cooking for one, two or a few family members. Let’s do it!

Skip over to this dedicated test cooking page to see what recipes are up for grabs. EVERYONE is welcome, whatever your talents in the kitchen.

Simply leave a comment about which recipe you would like to test and I’ll send it over to you by email.

Until then, make yourself a Vincent Price Pink Tonic or two!

I’ll be having a few pink tonics as I read through the many Vincent Price related blog posts that are going to be popping up over the weekend. Thanks to Gill of Realweegiemidget Reviews and Barry of Cinematic Catharsis for organising this tribute to the great Vincent Price.
