Francesco Palmieri

The Orange Squirrel Restaurant - Bloomfield, NJ

In addition to his horror film mastery, legendary actor Vincent Price was also a true gourmand, co-authoring with his wife A Treasury of Great Recipes, a cookbook/guide to their favorite restaurants. In honor of its 50th anniversary, Price’s daughter Victoria and acclaimed chef Francesco Palmieri will celebrate the King of Horror’s legacy by drawing from the tome to call forth gastronomic ghosts of kitchens past.
