Celebrate Vincent Price at MetroFresh

By Alexa Lampasona
MetroFresh will be honoring the famed actor, Vincent Price, this Sunday with the wine dinner “Cooking for Vincent” featuring Vincent Price’s signature collection. While some may know Price from his career as an actor in horror films, he was also a wine connoisseur and the first spokesman for the California Wine Institute.

Price’s daughter, Victoria, takes this dinner to both the James Beard House in NYC and Edgar Allan Poe Museum, and the final stop is here in Atlanta. MetroFresh’s owner Mitchell Anderson is a dear friend of Victoria and Vince. He assisted Victoria in caring for Vince during the final days battling Parkinson’s disease. The dinner is cleverly named “Cooking for Vincent” as an homage to Anderson’s time cooking for Vince while he was in New York acting alongside Neil Patrick Harris in “Doogie Howser.”

The evening includes a five-course meal with wine pairings that are inspired by Vince’s book, “A Treasury of Great Recipes.” Anderson and Victoria will share stories of Vince throughout the meal. More information is available on the event page.
