Food is meant to be enjoyed, and Sophie Dahl would have it no other way. Growing up in a family of true food lovers, she began cooking at a young age and never looked back. Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights presents nearly one hundred of her tried-and-true recipes, organized around the four seasons and using the freshest ingredients available. Accented with her stories about how she came to know these foods and why she loves them, Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights provides a complete picture of what a meal should provide. From lemon-scented summer stews, to crisply burnished pies, to salads and soups for breezy lunches, to decadent desserts, Sophie Dahl cooks food that is indulgent, delicious, and wholesome.
Sophie Dahl began her career as a model, but cooking has always been her first love. She was contributing editor for Men's Vogue for three years and now works for, among others, both the U.K. and U.S. editions of Vogue, the Guardian, Waitrose Food Illustrated, and The Times. After an eight-year sojourn in New York, Sophie now lives in London.
Former-model-turned-writer Sophie Dahl's cookbook, Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights, not only offers yummy, seasonal recipes, but also offers an insight into Dahl's own relationship with food. Dahl has written for Vogue, The Guardian and The Times of London. Host Liane Hansen speaks with Dahl, who is also the grand-daughter of the writer Roald Dahl and actress Patricia Neal.
