Honoring Vincent Price
We are honoring Vincent Price with two special Cleveland events. He made an enormous impression on the world through his movies, his very recognizable voice, his love of art, and his passion for cooking. Vincent was classically handsome, with an elegant demeanor and well-known gentle spirit.
Vincent Price is best known perhaps as a classic macabre movie actor. In actuality, he was also a culinary artist and a profound Yale-educated art historian. He wrote several cookbooks and art history books and lectured around the country.
As an avid art collector, he started the Vincent Price Art Museum in Los Angeles, to which he donated most of his art collection. He felt passionately about the arts and was an advocate for artists. He said, "Art is the visual experience of man made exciting by talent...and the talent belongs to that rarest of all individuals, the artist."
Please join us at the events below to honor this extraordinary Renaissance Man.
Monday, June 22, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Enjoy an intimate and formal Vincent Price Wine Dinner at the Luxe Kitchen & Lounge in Gordon Square (6605 Detroit Rd., Cleveland). The dinner will celebrate the 50th anniversary of “A Treasury of Great Recipes“ by Vincent & Mary Price. Luxe will create a five-course dinner from the cookbook and offer limited edition Vincent Price wine. Special guest, Victoria Price, will talk about her father's passion for the culinary arts.
