Notes about this book

  • MaryMM on August 24, 2017

    This was one of my first cookbooks along with the first two Julia Child books. I still use it. I am beyond thrilled that it has been re-released. Mine is so written in and dog eared I may have to buy the new edition. What a treasure.

    Probably has the BEST recipe for Caesar Salad known to mankind!!

    used, online. The photos of menus make it a true time capsule: Bookbinder's, a banquet at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Luchow's ... Delighted to see it's in Indexing Now (as of late August 2016), but it's a big one, so will take a while. Update: released January 2017, to acclaim in the forum.

    I've made quite a bit of recipes from this book in the past and it's always been wonderful.

    ...a perfect title; story time from the Prices' travels; recipes untouched by time; and no end of absurd, wonderful photos.

Publishers Text

The actor Vincent Price and his wife loved food and were invited to eat all over the world. Here are recipes from restaurants the world over (often with menus reproduced), color photos of the places and special dishes-some with Vincent in them, and delightful stories of their experiences. This is a detailed portrait of world famous restaurants that includes menus, pictures and recipes from them, as enjoyed by Vincent Price and his wife Mary. Contents include: "Famous Specialties of the World's Foremost Restaurants Adapted for the American Kitchen" with recipes such as " Scampi Auroroa" from Harry's Bar, Venice, Italy; "Luchow' s German Pancake," Luchow's German Restaurant, New York." Luxurious padded decorated covers, useful information on all endpapers, attached silk bookmarks. Many menus of famous restaurants are included, fascinating in themselves, showing that you could buy a bottle of 1937 Echezaux for $55 back then!
