From Willy Wonka's nutty crunch surprise to the mound of spare ribs consumed by Hansel and Gretel in Rhyme Stew, food has been an essential ingredient in Roald Dahl's writing for children. Felicity Dahl has created a practical guide to making some of the dishes which appear in Dahl's books.

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.

Review:

"Dahl, one suspects, would have been tickled . . . deliciously playful." --Publishers Weekly

"So much fun to look at." --Booklist

"Some of the recipes, despite their titles, produce good tasting, recognizable dishes. Others are works of art . . . a reminder and celebration of his outrageously imaginative books that so many children love." --School Library Journal
