The delectable Sophie Dahl brings her culinary prowess to LifeStyle FOOD with a six-part cookery series, The Delicious Miss Dahl, marrying her talent for storytelling with fresh, enticing recipes.
Initially known for an international modelling career, Sophie turned her focus to writing and is now a best-selling novelist and columnist who has written widely about her passion for food and cooking.
For Sophie, food and emotion are inextricably linked. Each episode, therefore, is themed around an emotional thread including romance, nostalgia and escapism. With food as the centrepiece, she revisits treasured places, revealing the personal resonance behind each of her recipes.
From the stony Sussex beach she played on as a child, to a hidden urban cemetery and its messages of enduring love, Sophie reflects on moments in her life that have shaped her approach to food. Sophie's quirky and unique approach to cooking makes this series a real feast - earthy, funny and, above all, straight from the heart.
In loving mood and inspired by the romance of train stations and graveyards, Sophie talks us through her perfect dishes for the three stages of romance.
It’s a melancholic day and there’s no getting away from it. The only option is to feed this melo-dramatic emotion with dishes that could cheer up Eeyore. Starting with bubble & squeak cakes served with red onion gravy and a languid fried egg, the joyous indulgence begins.
