One of the most revered and collectible cookbooks of the 20th century, Vincent and Mary Price's A Treasury of Great Recipes has stood the test of time. It now seems clear that one of the reasons this book has become a classic is not merely the recipes. This book captures an entire lifestyle -- the Postwar, globe-trotting, Pan Am, waiters in bow ties, gourmet lifestyle. This is a Mad Men book. No quick-to-the-table Betty Crocker conveniences here. Everything about this book screams "gracious dining." The Prices in their kitchen with gleaming copper pots. The reproductions of pages from vintage menus. The word "Luncheon." The two-color pen and ink illustrations. The padded leatherette binding with silk bookmark. This is not to say that the Prices are snobbish. They're cultured. And the scope and level of detail they bring to this book is loving and extraordinary.

From the Back Cover:
"Good cooking is where you find it," according to the authors of this unique collection, whose international smorgasbord ranges from the haute cuisine of Europe's finest restaurants to the juicy hot dogs at Dodger Stadium. In perhaps the first celebrity cookbook, famed actor Vincent Price and his wife, Mary, present mouthwatering recipes from around the world in simplified, unpretentious forms that anyone can make and enjoy. Selected from London's The Ivy, Madrid's Palace Hotel, New York's Sardi's, and other legendary establishments, the recipes are accompanied by witty commentaries, while color photos and atmospheric drawings by Fritz Kredel make this one of the most beautiful books of its kind. Includes a Retrospective Preface by the couple's daughter, Victoria Price, and a newForeword by Wolfgang Puck.
A Calla Edition, originally published by Ampersand Press, Inc., New York, 1965."
About the Author:
American actor Vincent Price (1911–93) was well known for his distinctive voice and serio-comic performances in horror films from the latter part of his career. He and his wife, costume designer Mary Grant Price (1917–2002), were avid art collectors and gourmets.
