Vincent Price’s Menu

9 May

For my birthday a few years ago the lovely Jessica May ebayed me a copy of A Treasury Of Recipes by Vincent and Mary Price. It’s been one of the prides of my book shelf since, and occasionally we try out a recipe.

I recently mentioned it to some folks, who, understandably, immediately began referencing ‘eye of newt’ as a key ingredient – really though it’s a fascinating book, and an interesting bit of culinary archeology. I believe it was written near the end of Mary and Vincent’s relationship, and its easy to imagine their storied history spread across the international menus within.

    That’s quite a treat, especially the peek into the Price’s own home. I’m not sure what I expected, but it certainly wasn’t that.

      Their kitchen (middle-top shot), somehow manages to be both inviting and menacing at the same time.
