Roald Dahl's Completely Revolting Recipes: Roald Dahl

I adored George’s Marvellous Medicine when I was younger. I was even inspired to make my own gluggy, disgusting concoction/medicinal brew from the contents of the family pantry. Unfortunately I didn’t have a grandmother crotchety enough to deserve it!

Roald Dahl’s Completely Revolting Recipes makes you realise how much food appears in his books, from wormy spaghetti (The Twits) to Hot Ice-Cream for Cold Days (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory).

While the names of the recipes in this book are silly and revolting (Boiled Slobbages anyone?), the recipes themselves are easy, creative and delicious. The spiral-bound format is handy, the contents well organised, and the many recipes are laid out very colourfully and attractively with Quentin Blake’s trademark illustrations. A delight for Roald Dahl fans, and budding cooks alike!
