Roald Dahl Cookbook: Willy Wonka's Nutty Crunch Surprise
The first in this series of posts was for Zodiac Chocolate Cake from the Mary Poppins in the Kitchen. Today, I chose another 'children's cookbook' Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipes (Viking, 1994). Illustrated by Quentin Blake with photographs by Jan Baldwin. Recipes compiled by Josie Fison and Felicity Dahl.
According to Felicity Dahl, "Treats were an essential part of Roald's life--never too many, never too few, and always perfectly timed. . . Revolting Recipes is an interpretation of some of the scrumptious and wonderfully disgusting dishes that appear in Roald's books."
Roald Dahl is one of the most beloved storytellers of all time. His many popular children's books include Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, The Witches, and Matilda. He died in 1990.
Quentin Blake has illustrated more than a dozen of Roald Dahl's Books, and he has collaborated with authors Joan Aiken and Russell Hoban, as well as illustrated his own picture books. He was honored with the OBE in 1988.
