As the students from the Cooking School for Delinquents already know, the class for Vincent Price’s Lamb with Onion Sauce is cancelled due to the fact that I am pretty sure this recipe is haunted.
While filming, from the very start, I had problems. My camera would say it was filming when it wasn’t and then not film when it said it was. As a result, I had to get creative and put together a fun yet spooky video that includes cooking dramatizations done by one pissed off foodie.
When I woke up at 4 am, another sleepless night, to discover what had happened with my camera and the footage I was left with… I almost threw in the kitchen towel. I was devastated. The recipe was so good though, I could not let it go. I am glad I stuck with it and hope you like the video I came up with.
And if you don’t believe me that weird crap was happening as a result of me making that recipe… We lost cable for 48 hours! Yeah, hit me where it hurts Vincent. In fact the cable guy had no idea what was wrong and it took forever to finally resuscitate the TV from the dead.
I also had my coffee Bodum explode in the kitchen, glass going everywhere. I am so lucky it did not go in my eyes!
While downstairs talking to Reg we heard movement in the kitchen. Reg, who is a bit of a skeptic, even admitted, “Maybe our kitchen really is haunted?”
Since I have uploaded the video, people have commented and written to me that they also had “technical difficulties” while watching it.
So class is cancelled. I can handle all the spooky stuff but would not want this to happen to any other student. I promise you, next time I will pick a recipe with less chance of creating this much supernatural chaos in the kitchen.

This is your best video yet!!! Yes, I’m sure you conjured up the spirit of Vincent Price and he proceeded to haunt your cooking school lesson. Perfect for Halloween!
And those mimed re-enactments were PRICELESS! I laughed so hard!

Thanks you SOOOOO much Debra! Yup, conjuring in the kitchen not so good when there are cameras involved. Vincent did add that Halloween touch to the video, whether I wanted him to or not.
🙂 Yay! So glad you enjoyed the re-enactments. Could you tell how thrilled I was to have to do them?! It was fun though.
Your feedback means so much to me. I worked so hard on this one! I hope people learn… Something!
Just curious, where did you get your copy of “A treasury of great recipes” ? It looks like it’s in great shape. Loved your video,it’s very funny 🙂

Tella, I got my second-hand off Amazon.ca. I was amazed at the condition! A total spooky kitchen treasure now. Thank you so much! For watching and commenting, I really appreciate that. I am glad the humour came through.
I found your picture of the Vincent Price book on Twitter. Would it be okay, if I used it on my blog (linking to you, of course)? I’m having a guest post soon where a fellow film fan wants to recommend the book as a Christmas gift. Your picture would be perfect for that.
