  1. Oh my word! I too cant wait! I have that book and I love the way Sophie writes,my favourite piece in the book is when she describes 'musicians breakfast' she says"My beloved is a musician,this,a strong cup of tea and Miles Davis on the stereo,makes him a happy fellow of a morning" is'nt that just enchanting? Oh,the festooned garden is beautiful!

  2. Oh, you lucky people who get BBC 2! I've read Playing with the Grownups and also have Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights (been meaning to blog about it for ages), so you can see that I'm a big Sophie fan!

  3. I remember when she first came to the public's attention ten years ago. What a revelation; a model with a real female body. Anyone else recall the ridiculous flap over that YSL perfume ad, featuring her, naked? Then she caved to pressure from the size 0 Nazis and wham, there goes "voluptuous". So it beats me why she's doing a cooking show. It seems just a bit hypocritical when you've adopted unrealistic body image standards. Stick to what you know Miss Dahl; writing good books!

  4. OMG – I can't wait either!!!! I've had her book for ages, and absolutely love it as not only are the recipes SO make-able and, more importantly, SO eatable, it is also an absolute thing of beauty in it's own right, with absorbing narrative in between the sensibly seasonal layout of recipes. Perfect!! I have loads of cookery books from more, shall we say, serious chefs/cooks, but love her book all the more as it appeals exactly to my tastes and style of eating – I come back to these recipes more often than the others. And, I wonder if you noted this too Alison, her recipes also seem to coincidentally lean, rather conveniently for me, towards being naturally gluten/wheat free on the whole (aside from her love of spelt).I'll deffo be recording each episode to savour over and over again! I would much rather take cooking and eating advice from someone real, who has been-there-done-that as far as eating unhealthily, then dieted, then found that ideal place we should all aspire to – the happy medium of everything in moderation, and truly ENJOYING eating good, healthy and tasty food, as she explains so well in this book. Love her!!!!!

  5. My first visit to your blog and it is a treat. I think I must quit my job and be a full-time vintage housewife (I wish,I wish!).
