A lusciously photographed collection of 100 recipes-indulgent but balanced food that celebrates the simple joys of cooking and eating--liberally spiced with the misadventures and travels that inspired them.
World famous model, actress, and writer Sophie Dahl loves food, and in this lush book, she shares secrets from her kitchen in funny stories and favorite recipes for each season. The granddaughter of Roald Dahl and actress Patricia Neal, Sophie lived out her teens and 20s under the public spotlight as the first famous anti-waif model--and then as a full-waif model. Since then, she has left modeling (and dieting) behind in favor of writing and cooking, as she conveys so beautifully here--with wit and humor.
In Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights she includes recipes from sophisticated crab and fennel salad, to her dad’s chicken curry, to what she serves her famous musician boyfriend for breakfast. Try her mama’s baked acorn squash and the delicious student-days favorite “Paris Mash,” and don’t even think of skipping a decadent dessert like Chocolate chestnut soufflé.
Sophie has a common-sense attitude, and serves up dozens of dishes that celebrate the joy of cooking, serving, and--most of all--eating great food. Original and intimate, Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights is full of wonderful anecdotes and delicious recipes, lush photography, and Sophie’s own whimsical line drawings.
