Book Description

Oct. 30 2001 Red Fox Picture Book
From Willy Wonka's Nutty Crunch Surprise to the mound of mysterious spare ribs consumed by Hansel and Gretel in RHYME STEW, food has always been an essential ingredient in Roald Dahl's writing for children. Now there's a unique cook book which Dahl fans will devour. His wife, Felicity Dahl, has created a practical guide to making some of the scrumptious and wonderfully disgusting dishes which appear in Roald Dahl's books. In ROALD DAHL'S REVOLTING RECIPES there's something intriguing for every occasion, from a simple lunch to a birthday feast. Everyone will relish cooking and eating these amazing recipes whether it be Stink Bugs' Eggs, The Enormous Crocodile or Bruce Bogtrotter's sensational chocolate cake! Quentin Blake's wickedly funny illustrations capture Dahl's sense of fun perfectly and Jan Baldwin's photographs offer a tantalizing promise of the treats in store. ROALD DAHL'S REVOLTING RECIPES is a unique book which Dahl fans of all ages will devour. It is the ULTIMATE treat.

Product Description

From Amazon

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 all 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 deviled eggs with some food coloring 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. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Hungry? Perhaps a serving of "Scrambled Dregs" or "Hair Toffee to Make Hair Grow on Bald Men" will hit the spot. Recipes for these and the additional delicacies mentioned in the late Roald Dahl's (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) work are hereby adapted for the home kitchen, thanks to the author's widow. Dahl, one suspects, would have been tickled: the offerings are heavily weighted on the side of sweets, and the order of presentation defies adult logic. True to the book's title, there are some recipes of questionable kid appeal (the green pea soup from The Witches; or cod, scallions and spices spread on bread and fried, identified as "Mosquitoes' Toes and Wampfish Roes Most Delicately Fried"). The graphics, meanwhile, are deliciously playful: Blake's inimitable, droll drawings interact cleverly with Baldwin's food photography. For example, cartoony characters clad in pajamas snooze on a silhouetted photo of "Eatable Marshmallow Pillows." Despite the child-oriented tone, a number of recipes require adult participation by virtue of cursory directions or tricky maneuvers (e.g., ensuring that mixtures boil to specific temperatures). All ages.

By A Customer
Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipes is a great book. And, the best thing about it is, the recipes aren't revolting! If you get this book, I would recommend the recipes you try first are Frogscottle or Hot Frogs. I guaruntee there are recipes that everyone will like in this book. Also, all of the recipes come from books that Roald Dahl has written.
