The Boris Karloff vs. Vincent Price Guacamole Smackdown

Halloween is almost here and I decided to throw a virtual party!

The Recipes

In this corner we have horror icon Boris Karloff who is best remembered for this roles in "Frankenstein", "Bride of Frankenstein", "The Mummy" and voicing "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas".

In this corner we have horror icon Vincent Price star of the classics "The Fly", "The Tingler", "House on Haunted Hill" and provided the iconic rap in Michael Jackson's hit song "Thriller".

Special Guest

Peter Fuller works for the Vincent Price Legacy UK and is the co-author of the upcoming book "Supper with the Stars with your Host Vincent Price", which he wrote with Jenny Hammerton of Silver Screen Suppers.

The Final Result

Take a look at this photo gallery to see how our efforts turned out!

The Boris Karloff guacamole was basic and tasted great. The onions and green chilis seemed to obliterate the taste of the sherry. Even though the thought of it filled many of us with horror, the mayonnaise gave Vincent Price's guacamole a creamy texture and the flavor was a bit more complex. It was a close call but.........the Guacamole champion is..........


A huge and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who participated on our panel today. It was so fun to have a virtual, international Halloween party!

Boris Karloff and Vincent Price co-starred in a pair of Roger Corman horror films in 1963.
