Review for: Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipes
Recipes compiled by: Josie Fison and Felicity Dahl
Illustrator: Quentin Blake
Photographer: Jan Baldwin
First Published: 1994
Introduction from Felicity Dahl, 1994. Roald and Felicity Dahl came up with the idea of "a book for children, based on the many wonderful and varied foods that appear in his books.", shortly before Dahl died. Roald Dahl encouraged (challenged) his second wife to find a way to produce this cookbook. And she did.
Baldwin's photos and Blake's images merge to humorously illustrate the recipes, with Blake incorporating some of Dahl's iconic characters. But it's just the recipes. No funny anecdotes. No book excerpts. Just the recipes.
This edition is a paperback of around 60 pages. As such, it is a book that will struggle to last the test of time, if frequently used, and will struggle to be used, flat, in a working kitchen with children. The recipes range in skill from a novice Peach Juice and Stink Bugs' Eggs to working with hot sugar in marshmallow or toffee, and deep frying doughnuts and onion rings. As such, this isn't a cookbook you would hand to a child and say "Go for it!". Many, if not most, recipes will require some adult supervision.
Note oven temperatures are in Farenheit, measurements/quantities are in ounces, inches, sticks, and include Rich Tea biscuits, Rice Krispies, semisweet chocolate, confectioners' sugar. New chefs may find the conversions and language difficult, and require extra forethought and support.

Read information about the authorRoald Dahl was a British novelist, short story writer and screenwriter of Norwegian descent, who rose to prominence in the 1940's with works for both children and adults, and became one of the world's bestselling authors.
Dahl's first published work, inspired by a meeting with C. S. Forester, was Shot Down Over Libya. Today the story is published as A Piece of Cake. The story, about his wartime adventures, was bought by the Saturday Evening Post for $900, and propelled him into a career as a writer. Its title was inspired by a highly inaccurate and sensationalized article about the crash that blinded him, which claimed he had been shot down instead of simply having to land because of low fuel.
His first children's book was The Gremlins, about mischievous little creatures that were part of RAF folklore. The book was commissioned by Walt Disney for a film that was never made, and published in 1943. Dahl went on to create some of the best-loved children's stories of the 20th century, such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and James and the Giant Peach.
He also had a successful parallel career as the writer of macabre adult short stories, usually with a dark sense of humour and a surprise ending. Many were originally written for American magazines such as Ladies Home Journal, Harper's, Playboy and The New Yorker, then subsequently collected by Dahl into anthologies, gaining world-wide acclaim. Dahl wrote more than 60 short stories and they have appeared in numerous collections, some only being published in book form after his death. His stories also brought him three Edgar Awards: in 1954, for the collection Someone Like You; in 1959, for the story "The Landlady"; and in 1980, for the episode of Tales of the Unexpected based on "Skin".
