In celebration of the noted actor, author, art lecturer and gourmet - and his silver screen endeavours - Supper with the Stars continues Vincent's culinary journey in a fun and inventive way: fusing fantastic food with film history.Fifty-two recipes from the kitchens of some of his legendary co-stars have been paired with dishes of his own, allowing you to make the meal and revisit a classic Vincent Price movie at the same time.

Plus, horror icons, comic heroes and British greats, such as Boris Karloff, Terry Thomas and Dame Diana Rigg.
