My mom has me searching for Vincent Price's cookbook. She claims that once it existed as a "book on tape"/audio book. I have found the actual book, but she insists on the mythical audiobook. I get that vincent price reading an audio would be pretty cool. But am I the only one who thinks an audio cookbook might be silly?

Look for The Beverly Hills Cookbook read by Vincent Price on Audio cassette 1980.

I have just read your post of Oct. 28, 2007 regarding the VIncent Price cookbook on tape. They really do exist. I have them. It is called the Vincent Price International Cooking Course. It consists of lessons 1-6 in one book with 6 tapes and lessons 7-12 in another book with 6 tapes. So your Mom is not crazy. Contact me for additional info if you wish.

I would like to find a cookbook that my sister had when she was a newly-wed, about 1960. The cookbook has been lost. She thinks it was Better Homes & Gardens, but not sure. It had celebrities recipes, Frank Sinatra's meatballs was one.

You know the format...members of the church gave up favorite recipes, so names are included in book. Soft cover with color picture of vegetables in a red colander. and these words: Favorite Recipes Cook Book, compiled by the Women of the First Baptist Church, Hartwell, Georgia" Inside is Copyright date of 1978, Cookbook Publishers, Inc., 13550 W 108th Street, Lenexa, Kansas 66212 There were multiple printings from earliest in 1975

Mine is from a very small regional hotel chain in Petoskey, Michigan. It was originally self-published by Stafford's Bay View Inn in the early 2000s and has been out of print for several years, but Stafford's just reprinted them and I was lucky enough to get a copy this time around.

Hey thankyou!
I will check out One of my favorite cookbook authors' is Joanne Lamb Hayes. Her cookbooks are about WWII era cooking, I've loved everything in them so far, although the baking one is the most applicable to today's eating habits.

I am looking for the following since my grand daughter received an easy bake oven for Christmas:
Baking with Mommy Cookbook: Recipes for Kid-Size Ovens
Any ideas?

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 12, 2009 9:01:37 PM PST
No you are not silly. I'm having a brainwave that one could create an audio cookbook, alongside a very visual cookbook showing step by step instructions. Heck, why stop there, one could even do a video! One could use Picasa 3 software right now and create images, and for audio use podcasts, and for video have a website or use YouTube. From Picasa 3, you can create movies. Please email me if you think my idea has merit. I would love to brainstorm with others. ; )

I had this book - - The Mary & Vincent Price Cookbook. I gave it to my daughter a couple of years ago. I neer heard of the audiobook. Have you tried Better World Books? They have a lot of obscure things. I can't imagine an audio cookbook. I am very visual and NEED to see the actual recipe to absorb the directions. Too bad. the cookbook is do delightful.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 24, 2012 7:35:58 PM PST
Try googling this complete line of info or go to Better World Books???? Good Luck!
