Vincent Price's 'Treasury...'

Jean's picture

I just bought a nice leather bound "special presentation - Christmas" volume of Vincent and Mary Price's A Treasury of Great Recipes.  The $25 I paid included shipping and it's in very good shape for being published in 1965. 


Question--do any of you have favorite recipes from this book. I hardly know where to start.

Where did you find it? From what I have seen on some boards--maybe here, it is Highly collectible.

Ran across it from a book seller through Amazon, maybe, or AdAll. I forget. Anyway--DH says its Faux leather, but still, I've seen it priced so very much higher.  I couldn't resist.

Someone gave my MIL, who loathed cooking as well as books, a copy years ago. It was pristine the last time I saw it. Turns out she put it out one recycling day. Grrrrr. Absolutely the ONLY thing in her house I coveted besides some family pictures. I just hope someone had the sense to know what it was.

I bought that book over 20 years from a used bookstore on South Street in Philadelphia. I was in my twenties and had just started my cookbook collection which is now cookbook obsession. I still have it. I made my first Bolognese sauce from that book.

There was a thread were I posted my favorites, yes, here 'tis. Recently made the chicken cannelloni again and cut back on the amount of white pepper. Just knew you'd appreciate that. LOL

I've typed out your list and will tuck it in the book for future reference.

OMG, I own this book!  But I admit it - I just read it for nostalgia purposes (G).  The recipes themselves are extraordinarily old-fashioned and very, very European.  (G)  Love it, though.  I wouldn't part with this book for anything in the world.  Vincent Price is an actor I miss so much.
