239 pp, 10" H. B&w and colour photographs, drawings. "(A) mixture of delightfully written anecdotes covering Roald Dahl's family upbringing, his youth and early days in Africa, and his happiness at home with Liccy, his wife, and their numerous children, grandchildren and friends. For this extensive family, there is no more enjoyable way of relaxing than sharing good food and wine. The meals they enjoy together round the old pine farmhouse table at Gipsy House are either fine examples of national dishes of their heritage - Norwegian, French, British, etc. - or favourite recipes that have delighted three generations of discerning eaters. Many recipes have acquired a particular significance for the Dahl family over the years, and these are introduced with reminiscences rich in nostalgia and humour. This book has many sections. The text has been written by Roald and Liccy Dahl, their children, close family and friends. The illustrations are by Quentin Blake, photographs by Jan Baldwin and all the recipes have been cooked by Josie Fison. The recipes are for all occasions, covering family birthday parties, Christmas and Easter celebrations, Roald's passion for chocolate, onions and wine, his enthusiasm for gambling and gardening and finally, a Dahl-style chapter: Hangman's Suppers - contributed by Francis Bacon, P.D. James, John le Carre, Peter Ustinov and others. It is a medly of great reading and good cooking." Light remainder mark on bottom of text block. Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling, one small tear archivally taped.
