9780007261178: Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights: Guilt-free Eating with Abandon

Sophie Dahl, one of the most beautiful and stylish women on the planet, shares delicious secrets from her slinky kitchen. With 100 delectable recipes for each season, as well as funny and touching stories from her amazing life, this luscious and beautifully illustrated book is set to become a cookery classic. Sophie Dahl has been both round as a Rubens and as sylphy as a sapling, through trial, error and an episode in India which needn't be discussed in detail with anyone. She lived out the latter part of her adolescence in public, and so her puppy fat, which should have been a tender family joke, became fuel for national debate. At the time this was crippling to her, and one of the reasons she moved to another country. Flirting with every food fad from Atkins to raw food, she has had both misadventures and victories in her quest to have a sound healthy relationship with food. Now in her twenty-ninth year it is suddenly simpler: Sophie cooks and eats, and does both with gusto. It can be lonely and confusing navigating food, particularly with the standards of beauty and weight that are thrust upon us by advertisers. Sophie aims to debunk some of the horrible punishing diet myths, and replace them with compassionate common sense, anecdotal stories and a lashing of healthy recipes. This is a book that doesn't encourage guilt or monastic deprivation, but celebrates the joy in food and eating. Original, funny, quirky with a bit of whimsy, this glorious book is full of memoir, anecdote and delicious recipes, scattered with lovely Matisse-like line drawings that slope off the page.

From the Back Cover:

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.

About the Author:

Sophie Dahl began her career as a model, but writing was always her first love. In 2003 she wrote illustrated novella The Man With The Dancing Eyes, which was a Times bestselling book. This was followed by a novel, Playing With The Grownups, published to widespread praise by Bloomsbury in 2007. Following on the success of Voluptuous Delights in hardback, Dahl wrote and presented a popular BBC2 six part cooking series, "The Delicious Miss Dahl" which was sold to numerous countries all over the world. Dahl lives in England where she continues to work on her journalism, fiction and baking.
