As puff pieces go this pretty much takes the cake, er, Guacamole. A feature from a long ago time when readers needed to be informed what Guacamole was and how to eat it. Glad those days are over. What's interesting is the hit of Sherry Karloff adds to his Guac... need to try that. Need to buy some sherry. Wait, what exactly is sherry--how times have changed.

"Boris Karloff scares people for a living, though how such a gentle, distinguished looking man could frighten anyone seems a puzzle.

A grown up who remembers Frankenstein and his monster and other lurid movies might suppose that Karloff's favorite recipes would be compounded of wolf bane and bat-wings seasoned with salamander tails. Or at the very least, it would be an exotic mixture from the foggy moors of Transylvania.

Probably served by a spooky butler who mysteriously appears out of the wall surrounded by eerie wisps of ectoplasm.

Not so. Karloff began life as William Henry Pratt, and he loves fine foods.

Mexican food is the flavor of this veteran actor and of all his favorites the special one is Guacamole, an avocado-based sauce that he makes in a spicy tantalizing fashion.

Guacamole is served on a bed of lettuce as a salad or with fried tortilla wedges as an appetizer or simply as a sauce.
