My darling readers, I bet you are wondering what is going to happen at Serendipitous Anachronisms, now that the France on Film Blogathon is over. Little did you know, I had another plot hatching, and it is thanks to Classic Movie Hub. Back in October, they had a brief essay contest asking people to name their favorite Vincent Price film, and I selected The Baron of Arizona AND WON! Well, thanks to Classic Movie Hub and the generous folks at Dover Publications, I am now the proud owner of the 50th Anniversary Edition A Treasury of Great Recipes by Mary and Vincent Price. So I am starting a new blog series called Dining with Mr. Price, because as you might have noticed or guessed I am a huge Vincent Price fan.
This new series is the perfect night in, dinner and a movie. I discuss a Vincent Price film and cook a meal from A Treasury of Great Recipes.
I will kick off the series with The Baron of Arizona based on a true story about James Reavis a swindler who with a false Spanish land grant, obtained a large portion of the American west (that is not a spoiler, that is American history). In the film, Reavis (played by Price) spends time in Spain, so I will cook Spanish dishes from A Treasury of Great Recipes including a paella!
This book is AMAZING! It features great recipes and vintage menus from great restaurants all over the world (Sardi’s, The Ivy, etc.). A Treasury of Great Recipes truly is a treasure, if you are into cooking, or Vincent Price, or both, you will thoroughly enjoy it.
Ciao for Now, Dearies!

This sounds great! I was tempted to buy the book myself and try out all the recipes.

It’s a fantastic book, if you are into cooking you will adore it. All the girls at my work were quite jealous.
It is an international delight featuring Indian, French, Mexican, English, Hawaiian foods… all sorts of great stuff! I can’t wait to test and share the goodies therein. 🙂
