    Sophie Dahl began her career as a model, but writing was always her first love. In 2003 she wrote an illustrated novella calledThe 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 BritishVogue. She has also written for US Vogue, Waitrose Food Illustrated magazine, theObserver, 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 secondTimes 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.
    A stylish and charming cookbook from a rising food star that interweaves personal anecdotes about food and the good life with 100 simple and appealing seasonal recipes.

    Bestselling author Sophie Dahl offers up 100 wholesome recipes for health-minded home cooks who yearn for a bit of indulgence in her gorgeous second cookbook. Favoring natural sweeteners, minimal meat, and abundant produce, these dishes satisfy yet never feel ascetic. Recipes ranging from Roasted Pumpkin with Sauteed Greens and Toasted Cumin Dressing to Rhubarb Rice Pudding are organized seasonally, and the book finishes with a full chapter of luscious desserts. But the recipes are only part of the story--Sophie’s food-filled memories and musings on the good life make this a book to treasure for its writerly charms as much as for its advice in the kitchen.

    Very Fond of Food will enchant the eye with evocative photography and whimsical drawings; inspire the mind with witty recollections on family, travel, and romance; and captivate the palate with recipes that comfort body and soul. Sophie Dahl invites you into a delightful world where every meal is a story, and there’s always an excuse for cake.
