More About the Author

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Llandaff, South Wales, and went to Repton School in England. His parents were Norwegian, so holidays were spent in Norway. As he explains in Boy, he turned down the idea of university in favor of a job that would take him to"a wonderful faraway place. In 1933 he joined the Shell Company, which sent him to Mombasa in East Africa. When World War II began in 1939 he became a fighter pilot and in 1942 was made assistant air attaché in Washington, where he started to write short stories. His first major success as a writer for children was in 1964. Thereafter his children's books brought him increasing popularity, and when he died children mourned the world over, particularly in Britain where he had lived for many years.The BFG is dedicated to the memory of Roald Dahls eldest daughter, Olivia, who died from measles when she was seven - the same age at which his sister had died (fron appendicitis) over forty years before. Quentin Blake, the first Children's Laureate of the United Kingdom, has illustrated most of Roald Dahl's children's books.

If you like Road Dahl's writing, his wit - you must read this book, but try to forget his other books for a moment and enjoy these real-life stories and anecdotes written in the last stage of his life, all mixed up with recipes and photographs and comments. This is the last thing he wrote, and it must be appreciated and savoured! Dont expect just a plain cookbook.

Format: Paperback
This is not your regular cookbook. It is part memoir, part love letter to family members and part recipe book. His words and wisdom are warm and touching and, whilst many of the recipes seem to hark from another, slower era, it is a fascinating read, along the same lines as Jane Grigson or Elizabeth David. Deeply British.
