METROFRESH PRESENTS “COOKING WITH VINCENT,” DINNER HONORING LEGENDARY HORROR FILM STAR VINCENT PRICE

vincentNEXT Sunday

You knew his voice from the Michael Jackson “Thriller” video but did you know that spook star Vincent Price was a lover of food and wine – so much so that the California Wine Institute named him its first spokesperson? MetroFresh’s Mitchell Anderson knew him well – in fact he’s old pals with Price’s daughter Victoria, who will join him on Sunday, November 2 for “Cooking for Vincent” at MetroFresh.  Seating is limited to 50 guests so don’t miss this amazing night honoring the legendary actor, where Mitchell and Victoria will discuss cooking for him in his final days (we’ll also sip VP’s Signature Wine Collection). This the last in a series of “Cooking with Vincent” events including the James Beard House in NYC on Oct 30 and Edgar Allan Poe Museum on Nov 1. The dinners feature a menu inspired by the cookbook Vincent and his wife wrote 50 years ago, “A Treasury of Great Recipes,” paired with VP wines.
