Vincent Price’s Cookbook Is Getting a New Expanded Edition
Those of you who know horror icon Vincent Price know that he was a big fan of food. In fact, the esteemed thespian had four cookbooks published, each of which offer wonderful and delicious recipes. Now, Calla Editions is reprinting an expanded edition of his fourth book, Cooking Price-Wise, that will include new contributions from his daughter, Victoria, as well as his son, V.B. There will also be baking recipes from Vincent’s grandfather, who apparently was the inventor of baking powder!
This new edition is already available for pre-order through Amazon and will come out October 18th.
Cheers to BrokeHorrorFan for the find!
Best known as a star of stage and screen, Vincent Price was also a noted gourmet whose enthusiastic promotion of home cooking included several cookbooks and a television show, Cooking Price-Wise. This charming book of Price’s favorite recipes is based on the Thames Television series he hosted in the 1970s, which showcased timeless international cuisine. Scores of easy-to-make dishes from around the world include soups, breads, main courses, sidedishes, and desserts that can be made from ingredients readily available in supermarkets and food shops. Fascinating food-related historical tidbits add extra zest to the newly typeset recipes and numerous color and black-and-white photographs that enhance this handsome collectible edition.
This special expanded edition of Cooking Price-Wise stands as a true family affair, featuring new contributions from the author’s children, including a Preface by his daughter, Victoria, and a Foreword by his son, V.B. An extensive bonus section, “The Culinary Legacy of the Price Family,” includes baking recipes from Vincent’s grandfather, the inventor of baking powder; journal entries from the author’s eye-opening trip to Europe as a 17-year-old; and a selection of family favorites from Victoria Price’s childhood. Plus, Victoria also provides a wealth of insights into the Price Culinary Legacy.
