About the Author

Sophie Dahl began her career as a model, but writing was always her first love. In 2003 she wrote an illustrated novella called "The Man With The Dancing Eyes", which was a Times bestselling book. This was followed by a novel, "Playing With The Grownups", published to widespread praise by Bloomsbury in 2007. Dahl is a contributing editor at British Vogue and is a regular contributor to US Vogue and to Waitrose Food Illustrated magazine. She has also written for, amongst others, The Observer, The Guardian, and The Saturday Times Magazine.

A devoted eater and cook, she wrote a book which chronicled her misadventures with food, "Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights", published by Harper Collins in 2009, which was her second Times bestseller. Following on the success of Voluptuous Delights, Dahl wrote and presented a popular BBC2 six part cooking series, "The Delicious Miss Dahl" which was sold to numerous countries all over the world. Dahl lives in England where she continues to work on her journalism, fiction and baking.

Format: Hardcover
I love this book! I received it as a gift and thought, whilst it is pretty, I probably would not use it due to my already vast collection of cookery books.

I read this in bed at night as it combines a sweet and interesting narrative with food - my two favourite things. And the food! The recipes are wonderful, so different to those in my old favourites, Nigella and Jamie. This has lifted me out of a food rut and encouraged me to try something different. None of the ingredients are difficult to source. Not a disappointing recipe so far.

Of course, there are shades of exasperation when reading this book - Sophie is ridiculously beautiful in all of the pictures and talks of a life that could have come straight from her grandfather's stories - who wouldn't want to be her, just a little? But I overcame my jealousy with the first bite of one of her recipes. Don't be distracted by envy...

I was given Sophie Dahl's first recipe book, Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights, for a gift several months ago and loved it. She offers recipes that give that genuine home-cooked authenticity with a hint of nostalgia. When I saw this latest offering was coming out and the low price I decided to pre-order it. It arrived today and it's as lovely as expected, I've already got too many recipes that I'm salivating to try as soon as possible.

I love cookery books that are great just to read as well as functionally great to create tasty home-cooked meals from. This is such a book, it's beautifully presented with wonderful photography from Jan Baldwin. Even the pages are made from a lovely thick paper which is apparently sustainably sourced and is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council - it feels good quality anyway!

The book is themed on the seasons and start with Autumn which is then split into breakfasts, lunches and suppers. The rest of the seasons follow in order and are also split into the same three categories. There is a final section dedicated to puddings too. At the start of each season there is some preamble from Sophie which gives some insight into her life as well as linking how much food and the enjoyment of good food is integrated into her lifestyle. Many of the recipes also include some snippet of why she's included it in the book. It's just such a nice book to read.

Although I'm a meat eater, I live with a non-meat eater and both of Sophie's book are great for us because they offer a wide range of recipes - there is a good mix of non-meat, meat and seafood options here so foodie veggies and pescatarians (veggies who also eat fish/seafood) will have plenty to enjoy.

Highly recommended to those who enjoy the whole experience of choosing what to cook, cooking it and then eating it!

Sophie Dahl's new recipe book is a delight - delicious, wholesome and seasonal recipes. It is beautifully written - warm and engaging and the presentation is unsurprisingly pretty and elegant - just like the woman herself! It's a great reference book for the kitchen or an attractive and entertaining coffee table book. I highly recommend it.

I was bought Sophie's first book as a gift, and whilst I like it, I can't say I have made much from it. So when I first noticed there was a second offering from Miss Dahl, I certainly didn't have it on pre order. I usually avoid cookery books from celebrities who have had no culinary training whatsoever but have somehow managed to get a book deal based on good looks/acting ability/famous relatives - need I say more. I have so far managed to avoid Gwyneth Paltrow (please), same goes for Lorraine Pascale (sorry) but I do have Fay Ripley's first book (not bad) if only for the fact that she seems like a normal mum without being ridiculously beautiful with it. Good for her.

So on to Miss Dahl's (or should I say Mrs Cullum's) latest publication. I really wanted to hate this book - I mean come on, a stunning ex model who now thinks she can cook her way into our hearts and all because she is of famous descent, not to mention more than a little photogenic. And don't even get me started on the 'I want it' house she lives in, in the 'I can't afford it' part of London - arghhh (and yes I know it wasn't her actual kitchen/house/garden that was used for the filming of MD'sVD but I am quite sure her real house is even nicer)! But before you pass this book up in favour of one of the many new books conveniently published at this time of year, please hear me out.

Season to Season is actually a really interesting book, captivating and beautiful with its sumptuously printed thick paper and stunning photography. A lovely surprise.

As you would imagine it is split into seasons, which I don't normally like, however I can forgive it, because of the very many, simple but different and look like they are going to work recipes.

If you are like me and love to read cook-books like other people read fiction, then this is the book for you. It is absolutely beautiful; the food styling is lovely, photography inspiring and printed on great quality recycled paper. The book itself is set out in seasons again which I like and full of recipes for lunch, breakfast and supper. I have Sophie's other book too and personally, that one was better in my opinion, with regards to tempting me to try the recipes. The baking section in this one is a little disappointing compared to Sophie's last book. Well, I guess this one is actually Desserts, whereas the last book was more geared towards ' bakes'. Either way, there are too many ice-cream / parfait recipes. This is England, I want good old fashioned apple pie and scones. There are also A LOT of fish recipes and both books steer too much towards vegetarianism. Now I know Sophie is a vegetarian, however, she does not sell her books as 'vegetarian recipes' so she should include a bit more meat based recipes. Lovely soup recipes though, all her recipes that I have tried so far work, and are easily adapted to suit whatever you have in the cupboard. Beautiful books to snuggle into a sofa with, on a boring Sunday evening and pour over recipes to your hearts content.
