About the Author

Sitting in a hut at the bottom of his garden, surrounded by odd bits and pieces such as a suitcase (used as a footrest), his own hipbone (which he'd had replaced) and a heavy ball of metal foil (made from years' worth of chocolate wrappers), Roald Dahl wrote some of the world's best-loved stories including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Twits, The Witches, The BFG, Fantastic Mr Fox, James and the Giant Peach and lots more. Quentin Blake is one of Britain's most successful illustrators. He has illustrated nearly three hundred books and he was Roald Dahl's favourite illustrator. He has won many awards including the Whitbread Award and the Kate Greenaway Medal and taught for over twenty years at the Royal College of Art. In 1999 he became the first ever Children's Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted in the New Year's Honours.

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.

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.

One of my favourite recipes is the rose-petal sorbet - a Charlie's Chocolate Factory confection come to life, and which any rose grower will find irresistible!

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