Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights by Sophie Dahl

Sophie Dahl, one of the most glorious women on the planet, shares delicious secrets from her slinky kitchen, funny stories and favourite recipes in a beautifully illustrated hardback. With delectable recipes for each season, this luscious abundant take on food will delight women everywhere. In this beautifully colour illustrated cookbook, Sophie shares 100 of her favourite recipes that show that healthy can be delicious and indulgent. Sophie lived out the latter part of her adolescence under the public spotlight as the first anti-waif model. Flirting with every food fad from Atkins to raw food, she experienced both misadventures and victories in her quest to have a healthy relationship with food. Now she reveals the recipes that allowed her to eat what she wants while being sylphy as a sapling. Sophie cooks with gusto and passion and here she takes us on a delicious journey through a wonderful collection of her favourite recipes for every meal and every season - from her Grandmother Gee-Gee's ginger parkin, to her dad's amazing chicken curry to what she serves her boyfriend for breakfast. Try out her mama's baked acorn squash and the delicious student-days favourite 'Paris Mash', plus childhood-fun puddings like Carnation milk jelly or decadent desserts like Chocolate chestnut souffle. Sophie reveals compassionate common sense about food, and serves up a lashing of healthy recipes that celebrate the joy of eating so you'll never want to diet again. Original, funny, intimate, and quirky with a bit of whimsy, this glorious book is full of wonderful anecdotes and delicious recipes, scattered with Sophie's own lovely Matisse-like line drawings that slope off the page.


Sophie Dahl began modelling in 1996, after being discovered by fashion maverick Isabella Blow. In 2003 her best-selling novella, 'The Man With The Dancing Eyes' was published. Dahl has been published in American Vogue, the Guardian, the Telegraph Magazine and The Spectator. Dahl lives in England after an eight year sojourn in New York. She is now a regular contributor to Waitrose Food Monthly Magazine.

I love cook books and for my birthday in May I had a gift card to amazon and spent some of it on 3 new cookbooks! This one was really enjoyable to read and I like how she's real. I also love how her recipes are very obviously well used. The way the instructions are written it's like she's talking to you. A lot of the recipes are very veggie as she is a veggie. She does cook meat for her family members and what not so there are recipes for meat. I love vegetables so I will be using this one a lot I think!! Again I haven't used it yet so I will let you know!!! Click here for her Peanut Butter Fudge recipe!! There are more videos on youtube of her BBC show The Delicious Miss Dahl!!
