My heart nearly burst with pride this morning when I got an email from my mum praising my pastry! I’d taken up some mini apple pies I made to a Vincent Price recipe last time I visited and she said, “We had your tartlets yesterday, they were really nice, were they a SSS recipe? Lovely short pastry. We had them warm with some cream.” SSS is the official shorthand for Silver Screen Suppers! As my mum taught me all about pastry making when I was just a nipper, this was high praise indeed.
I was thrilled to meet Vincent Price’s daughter last week at the Abertoir Horror Film Festival and have written all about it over at the Vincentennial Cookblog. What a week it has been. I met 3 idols – Leee John from Imagination, Victoria Price and the local Muswell Hill “chewing gum artist”. All lovely, lovely people. It is indeed a charmed life when, like Vincent and Mary Price we set out to be “collectors of experiences”.
