Product description

Review

“Readers will be itching to get into the kitchen--and out to the table--but will also be called to a more mindful way of cooking throughout, one based on sustainability, simplicity and love.”
—Shelf Awareness, 4/13

“Fans of stylish, anecdote-wielding celebrity chefs will find plenty to love in this collection, which favors vegetables, grains, legumes, seafood, and dairy.”
—Library Journal, 2/15/12

“In Very Fond of Food Sophie shares a world where everything (including the food) is pretty but not overly precious. Her cooking style is relaxed and easygoing, her recipes approachable, wholesome, and interesting. This is a book that makes you feel like being in the kitchen, making lovely food, is exactly where you want to be.”
—Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day
 
“Devour this book. Take it to bed with you and flip through it as you would a treasured novel. Sophie Dahl’s words speak honesty and humility, love and malady. It’s the sort of cookbook that will make you fondly think of your grandmother and have you checking the fridge for leftover beef stroganoff. An absolute treasure of a book.”
—Joy Wilson, creator of Joy the Baker

About the Author

Sophie Dahl began her career as a model, but writing was always her first love. In 2003 she wrote an illustrated novella called The Man with the Dancing Eyes, which was a Times bestselling book. This was followed by a novel, Playing with the Grown-Ups, published to widespread praise by Bloomsbury in 2007. Dahl is a contributing editor at British Vogue. She has also written for US Vogue, Waitrose Food Illustrated magazine, the Observer, the Guardian, and the Saturday Times Magazine, among others.
 
A devoted eater and cook, she wrote a book chronicling her misadventures with food, Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights, published by HarperCollins in 2009, which was her second Times bestseller. Following on the success of Voluptuous Delights, Dahl wrote and presented a popular BBC2 six-part cooking series, The Delicious Miss Dahl, which aired in numerous countries all over the world.
 
Dahl lives in England, where she continues to work on her journalism, fiction, and baking. Visit www.sophiedahl.com.
