Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Tawny granola

    • Melanie on March 07, 2014

      Very easy and flexible recipe. Love using whole almonds in this recipe.

  • Squid salad with chargrilled peppers and coriander/cilantro dressing

    • aberne on July 27, 2012

      This is really delicious. Be sure not to put too much squid in the pan at once, otherwise it goes all rubbery and watery. Quite simple, and great with crusty bread to sop it all up.

  • Baked eggs with Swiss chard

    • Melanie on March 07, 2014

      The recipe serves 2 however I greedily ate this all by myself. If this was served with toast though it should definitely be shared! I read "chopped" onion as diced however if I had paid attention to the photo I would have used sliced which I think would work better. I substituted feta for the goats cheese.

  • Pear and ginger muffins

    • Melanie on March 07, 2014

      I made lots of substitutions however the end result was still lovely. Recipe suggests using pear puree however I quickly pan fried 2 chopped pears to use as a replacement. In addition I replaced the spelt flour with 3/4C plain flour & 1/2C wholewheat flour; substituted half the honey for brown sugar; and used 2 whole eggs instead of 4 egg whites.

  • Scrambled eggs with red chillies and vine tomatoes

    • Melanie on March 07, 2014

      Nice to eat on a cold morning, serve with wholegrain toast. Recipe suggests roasting small vine tomatoes before scrambling the eggs however I was too impatient for this. I pan fried a roughly chopped large tomato with the olive oil and emptied onto a plate before cooking the chilli and adding the eggs into the pan to scramble.

  • Grilled bananas with Greek yoghurt and agave

    • Melanie on March 07, 2014

      Delicious with honey for breakfast (skipped the rum).

  • Cinnamon roast peaches with vanilla yoghurt

    • Melanie on March 07, 2014

      Yum! Definitely be greedy and eat two of these.

  • Baked apples

    • Melanie on March 07, 2014

      Small red apples worked well. To serve, I added a few spoons of ricotta, sprinkled over the leftover topping and spooned some of the cooking water over the top.

  • Lemon Capri torte

    • Astrid5555 on October 28, 2012

      Expected a fluffy cake as pictured in the book, however turned out disappointingly dense. Lemon lovers will nevertheless like it.

  • Cardamom rice pudding

    • Melanie on March 07, 2014

      This was quite delicious - sort of like an Indian pudding and sweet but not overpoweringly so. I made a couple of changes by using ground cinnamon, ground coriander, currants and chopped almonds.

  • Banana bread

    • Melanie on March 07, 2014

      Tastes great straight out of the oven with lashings of butter. Make sure the bananas are mashed very well. If you have any left after two days it still tastes lovely.

  • Orange yoghurt and polenta cake

    • Melanie on March 07, 2014

      Very easy to put together, interesting texture - I was a fan.

    ...such a beautifully styled and photographed book. I love the British and slightly Scandinavian aesthetics... It is seasonal, light yet hearty, healthful and did I say beautiful?

Publishers Text

A lusciously photographed collection of 100 recipes-indulgent but balanced food that celebrates the simple joys of cooking and eating--liberally spiced with the misadventures and travels that inspired them.

World famous model, actress, and writer Sophie Dahl loves food, and in this lush book, she shares secrets from her kitchen in funny stories and favorite recipes for each season. The granddaughter of Roald Dahl and actress Patricia Neal, Sophie lived out her teens and 20s under the public spotlight as the first famous anti-waif model--and then as a full-waif model. Since then, she has left modeling (and dieting) behind in favor of writing and cooking, as she conveys so beautifully here--with wit and humor.

In Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights she includes recipes from sophisticated crab and fennel salad, to her dad’s chicken curry, to what she serves her famous musician boyfriend for breakfast. Try her mama’s baked acorn squash and the delicious student-days favorite “Paris Mash,” and don’t even think of skipping a decadent dessert like Chocolate chestnut soufflé.

Sophie has a common-sense attitude, and serves up dozens of dishes that celebrate the joy of cooking, serving, and--most of all--eating great food. Original and intimate, Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights is full of wonderful anecdotes and delicious recipes, lush photography, and Sophie’s own whimsical line drawings.
