This has been in the diary for months and it finally arrived! Hitchcock night!!
Below are a few photos from tonight.
My Hitchcock themed cake.
A few props from the evening.
Everyone brought a prop and Tom and Jo were the ‘lucky’ winners of the ‘Birds’ mug and Bate’s Motel toiletries. I particulary loved the step ladder which was either Vertigo or 39 steps (minus 37).
For dinner we served ‘Birds’ or sticky chicken drumsticks cooked in the slow cooker following this recipe.
We served these alongside ‘Psycho’ knife blade potato wedges and salad.
For the potato wedges I cut 1 potato per person (+1) into eight and drizzled in oil, salt and pepper before cooking at 180°c for around 45 minutes or until crispy on the outside but soft inside.
We watched Frenzy, Rope and Strangers on a Train and were all astounded by Hitchcock as usual. One of the main things I took away from my film degree was that Hitchcock was and always will be a British legend.
The next night will be a John Hughes movie night so I guess that will be breakfast goodies followed by a pink cake with 16 candles. Let’s hope we’re not home alone!
