“They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, which just goes to show they’re as confused about anatomy as they are about everything else, unless they’re talking about instructions on how to stab him, in which case a better way is up and under the ribcage.

Now Nanny Ogg, one of Discworld’s favorite witches, is handing down some of her tasty and, above all, interesting recipes. In addition to the delights of Lord Downey’s Mint Humbugs and Spicy Spotted Dick, Mrs. Ogg imparts her thoughts on life, death, and etiquette (“If you go to other people’s funerals, they’ll be sure to come to yours”), all in a refined style that should not offend anyone.
