1960s cookery - Vincent Price

I love poking about on the web. I found this site:


I remembered dimly that Vincent Price had published a "treasury" of recipes. The title was: A Treasury of Great Recipes: Famous Specialties of the World's Foremost Restaurants Adapted for the American Kitchen, by Mary and Vincent Price.

The web site I am pointing to consists of recipes used by people who had the book. I find it interesting, although I would never smother a chicken with 1/2 C of red currant jelly. Have a look at the Mushrooms in Cream though. Simple, rich and probably quite nice.

I have had fun looking at these old recipes, and reading the comments of people who are still making them. Enjoy!

If you want more, try this site too: http://www.cookingvincent.com/recipes/ There is another Price cookbook out there titled: Come into the Kitchen Cookbook.
