revolting recipes

much to our delight, we found these three cookbooks at the library a couple of days ago. Daisy can't stop looking through them. The first thing she wants to make is Strawberry-Flavored Chocolate-Coated Fudge from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. In the description it says, "Makes enough for 10 greedy children". She adores Roald Dahl stories just like her mother.

Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham Cookbook. Includes recipes such as Yots in Pots, Schlottz's Knots, Who-Roast-Beast, Moose Juice and Goose Juice and much much more.

Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipes. This book features recipes based on the names given food from many of his books such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr. Fox, the BFG and many others. For example, from James and the Giant Peach, he included the recipe for Crispy Wasp Stings on a Piece of Buttered Toast, which is basically carmelized shredded coconut piled on top of buttered cinnamon-sprinkled toast.

Roald Dahl's Even More Revolting Recipes. Pretty much disgusting. I love Quentin Blake's illustrations. Quentin Blake authored a few cute books himself. My favorite is Zagazoo. It's out of print now. We have it at our library, otherwise you have to buy it of Amazon or something. Which I might do.
