Product Description

Amazon Review

Feeling hungry? How about some Snozzcumbers for a snack, or a Fresh Mudburger for dinner? Or perhaps you're in the mood for Stink Bugs' Eggs. Fans of Roald Dahl will recognize his peculiar culinary inventions from his many books--now these dubious delights are collected together in Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipes, a compendium of dishes that sound worse than they really are. Stink Bug Eggs, for example, are really devilled eggs with some food colouring and a special, added ingredient (parmesan cheese or asafetida) to make them particularly aromatic. Mr Twit's Beard Food consists of mashed potatoes, hard-boiled eggs, mushrooms and cocktail franks cunningly arranged. Each recipe is simple to make, many are delightfully disgusting to contemplate, but all are easy on the palate. Roald Dahl himself would have been delighted to eat these ravishingly revolting recipes. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Excellent book, Bruce Bogtrotter's Cake is the best chocolate cake I have ever tasted! It is also very easy to make, an added bonus as it disappears so quickly.

Use it with my class of KS2 class and they absolutely love it! Some of the recipes are a little complex and take a lot of further planning and preparation but are very fun! Everything so far has turned out to be rather delicious and has been great to try things out of the normal and with links back to Literacy of Roald Dahl topic it makes it an overall winner.
