For Vincent's 100th Birthday Lets Cook Up Something Special.

For Vincent’s 100th Birthday Lets Cook Up Something Special.

Along with being an amazing actor, an elegant man, Vincent Price was a wonderful Cook.  I thought what better way to celebrate Vinnie’s birthday than getting his fans to cook up one of his favorite recipes.  This one was taken from his cookbook, “A Treasury of Great Recipes.”  He presented me with this book in 1965.  It was written with his wife, Mary.

One can almost hear his voice as he describe this dish.

Welsh Rabbit

serves 4

“There has been a tremendous amount of argument about whether this dish is called “rarebit” or “rabbit”.  We go along with those students of the language who say that originally it was a wry joke, like Scotch woodcock.  The poor Welshman’s rabbit was only a piece of toast under cheese sauce and the poor Scotsman woodcock was also mere toast under an egg sauce. Some literal-minded fellow must have said, ‘Shucks, that ain’t no rabbit, but it’s a” rare bit,” and a new word and the argument were born.  This is a good dish whatever you want to call it, only what ever you call it, please make it with beer instead of with milk.

1. Remove crusts from: 4 thick slices bread. Toast and keep warm.

2. In a double boiler, over very low hear, melt: 3 tablespoons butter. Add: 1/2 pound grated cheddar cheese.

3. Stir with a wooden spoon and add, a little at a time: 1 cup beer or stout that is at room temperature or warmer.  Stir continually till smooth.

4. Add: 2 beaten egg yolks. Keep stirring and do not let the rabbit boil or simmer or it will “string” and get lumpy.

5. Season with: 1/2 teaspoon paprika, 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard dissolved in 2 teaspoons beer or stout, a few grains cayenne pepper, and 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce.

PRESENTATION

When rabbit is warm and smooth, pour at once over slices of toast, each on its own plate.  If you have kept stirring steadily over low heat the rabbit will be satin smooth and creamy.”

Bon Appetite Mr. Price

  1. Our local group of horror fans celebrated Vincent Price’s 100th birthday by showing THE TINGLER in Percepto. It didn’t quite work as planned, due to the small electric motors not shipping in time, but everyone still had a great time. Tonight we’re showing HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL in Emergo.

    Long live William Castle!

      I love that you have a local horror group. How many of there are you? Is their anything I can do that would make your viewing of House on Haunted Hill more enjoyable?

  2. Patrick Power says:

    Oh, you know I will. I can never say enough about myself. LOL

  3. Patrick Power says:

    I think I want to try and make this recipe and enjoy it with friends while watching The Tingler, since it made so many people ‘rabbit” in the theater. LOL

    • William Castle says:

      I’ll post some other recipes soon. I hope you are having the adventure of your life. Tell me all about ite.

  4. James Nichols says:

    Sounds quite easy and tasty, a fitting tribute to one of my other favorites! This one’s for you, dear Vincent!

    • William Castle says:

      Your the best James. Let me know if you make the recipe.
