About the Author

Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. His books continue to be bestsellers, despite his death in 1990, and total UK sales are 55 million worldwide! Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and best-loved children's illustrators and it's impossible now to think of Roald Dahl's writings without imagining Quentin Blake's illustrations.

Format: Paperback
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.

Great recipes, looking for some ingredients here that are in the book. It is nice to have a collection of material from Roald Dahl.

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.
