9780140378207: Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipes

From Willy Wonka's Nutty Crunch Surprise to the mound of mysterious spare ribs consumed by Hansel and Gretel in RHYME STEW, food has always been an essential ingredient in Roald Dahl's writing for children. Now there's a unique cook book which Dahl fans will devour. His wife, Felicity Dahl, has created a practical guide to making some of the scrumptious and wonderfully disgusting dishes which appear in Roald Dahl's books. In ROALD DAHL'S REVOLTING RECIPES there's something intriguing for every occasion, from a simple lunch to a birthday feast. Everyone will relish cooking and eating these amazing recipes whether it be Stink Bugs' Eggs, The Enormous Crocodile or Bruce Bogtrotter's sensational chocolate cake! Quentin Blake's wickedly funny illustrations capture Dahl's sense of fun perfectly and Jan Baldwin's photographs offer a tantalizing promise of the treats in store. ROALD DAHL'S REVOLTING RECIPES is a unique book which Dahl fans of all ages will devour. It is the ULTIMATE treat.

Review:

Feeling hungry? How about some Snozzcumbers for a snack, or a Fresh Mudburger for dinner? Or perhaps you're in the mood for Stink Bugs' Eggs. Fans of Roald Dahl will recognize his peculiar culinary inventions from his many books--now these dubious delights are collected together in Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipes, a compendium of dishes that sound worse than they really are. Stink Bug Eggs, for example, are really devilled eggs with some food colouring and a special, added ingredient (parmesan cheese or asafetida) to make them particularly aromatic. Mr Twit's Beard Food consists of mashed potatoes, hard-boiled eggs, mushrooms and cocktail franks cunningly arranged. Each recipe is simple to make, many are delightfully disgusting to contemplate, but all are easy on the palate. Roald Dahl himself would have been delighted to eat these ravishingly revolting recipes.

About the Author:

Roald Dahl (Author)
The son of Norwegian parents, Roald Dahl was born in Wales in 1916 and educated at Repton. He was a fighter pilot for the RAF during World War Two, and it was while writing about his experiences during this time that he started his career as an author. His fabulously popular children's books are read by children all over the world. He died in November 1990.

Quentin Blake (Illustrator)
Quentin Blake has been drawing ever since he can remember. He taught illustration for over twenty years at the Royal College of Art, of which he is an honorary professor. He has won many prizes, including the Hans Christian Andersen Award for Illustration, the Eleanor Farjeon Award and the Kate Greenaway Medal, and in 1999 he was appointed the first Children’s Laureate. In the 2013 New Year’s Honours List he was knighted for services to illustration.
