ABOUT THIS BOOK: When Hollywood legend and horror icon Vincent Price wasn't scaring audiences, he was often found at home sampling some of the many recipes he gleaned from his globe-trotting travels.
In celebration of the noted gourmet and his silver screen endeavours, Supper with the Stars continues Vincent Price's culinary journey in a new and fun way: fusing fantastic food with film history. Fifty-two recipes from the kitchens of some of his legendary co-stars have been paired with dishes of his own, allowing you to make the meal and revisit a classic movie at the same time.
The roll call of stars includes legends such as Bette Davis, Henry Fonda and Joan Fontaine; screen goddesses Ava Gardner, Jane Russell and Lana Turner; and Hollywood heavyweights Charlton Heston, Robert Mitchum and Charles Bronson. Plus, horror legends Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney Jr and Peter Lorre; comic heroes Groucho Marx and Terry-Thomas; British greats Diana Rigg and Peter Cushing, and many more.
From Vincent Price's screen debut in Service de Luxe (1938) to his cinematic swan song in Edward Scissorhands (1990), we've selected 52 films to accompany your two-course meal.
These include film noir, comedy, thriller and drama favourites such as Laura (1944), Champagne for Caesar (1950), Shock (1946), Dragonwyck (1946) and The Whales of August (1987). Plus, 20 years of chills and thrills: from House of Wax (1953) to Theatre of Blood (1973).
Over 100 recipes have been tested, reviewed and updated for the modern palate, and each one is great for both novices and the kitchen adventurous alike. Insightful biographies and film reviews accompany the recipes, and there are some movie-themed cocktails to add to your repertoire.
Written by Peter Fuller and Jenny Hammerton, with some delightful illustrations by Ben Wickey, and a Foreword by Vincent's daughter, Victoria Price, Supper with the Stars is a must-have for film fans and foodies alike.
This Edition includes a bookplate signed by both authors and Victoria Price.
