    What I would call old fashioned, fussy dinner party food. Well worth it for Roald's anecdotes which was the main reason I wanted to read the book, the chapter on chocolate was one of my favourites, very informative. Certainly not a vegetarians go to cookbook, with the likes of oxtail soup, jugged hare, roast partridge and pheasant etc, but I stick to the puddings and side vegetables.

    Ik heb dit boek al vrij lang. Het is een prachtig boek, zeker voor mensen die Dahl als schrijver waarderen. Maar ook verder: warme anekdotes, prachtige foto' s en vooral: maakbare recepten die uit allerlei bronnen afkomstig zijn en qua stijl behoorlijk variëren. Goed vertaald ook, daar mankeert het nogal eens aan bij uit het Engels vertaalde kookboeken. Je vindt het boek regelmatig tweedehands, ik zou zeggen: meenemen dat boek, het is iedere cent waard!

    What a lovely cookbook. It has charming stories in it about Roald Dahl, his family and friends and pictures, as well as, favorite recipes that are cooked by his family and friends. There are even some recipes from his childhood. Some of the recipes I've never seen or hear of before, such as, chicken and avocado casserole and almond soup. There are so many great recipes. Its definitely worth the money for this book.

    I love this book. It transports you into the Roald and Felicity Dahl's world - the kitchen garden, beautiful photos, recipes contributed by their family and friends. It's a peek into their household, into their traditions and their close, loving family.

    I have always loved Roald Dahl and read his books over and over and over again when I was a child. I clearly remember, aged ten, his death being announced on the tiny television in our dining room and weeping at the loss. This book, which Roald was working on with his wife Felicity when he died, was completed and released the year following his death in 1990. It is a book of family, history and heartbreak, but also of beauty, joy and celebration, all told though the prism of food.

It is a book of family, history and heartbreak, but also of beauty, joy and celebration, all told though the prism of food. A master of the English literary language, Dahl has filled the book with vivid descriptions of food he has eaten and loved. The recipes are elegant and seasonal, made from fresh, uncomplicated ingredients. It is carefully executed British farmhouse food with international flair. Every part of this book sparkles. The recipes, the stories, the memories, the emotions, the food ethos, the illustration, the photography, the graphic design, the descriptions, the imagery. I truly appreciate the heart-rending effort it must have taken for Felicity Dahl to finish this book and I am very glad that she did.

    I have had this book for years, and have tried quite a few of the recipes in there. There is a good balance between good old-fashioned Englishness and more adventurous, curious Norwegian recipes (Roald Dahl's roots are in the far north). Besides being a cook book, it also feels a bit like a diary, as you get little snippets of their family life and anecdotes concerning the various recipes. Most of the dishes are stunningly photographed and make you hungry just by looking at them. I will treasure I have had this book for years, and have tried quite a few of the recipes in there.

    Just lovely, we must remember a cook book is not just about the food it's a story, a journey a relationship. A cozy read
