There’s something irresistible about watching thin, beautiful people stuff their faces full of grub.
Which explains our love for Sophie Dahl, the former hotshot model-turned-chef whose unabashed love for all things delicious inspired her new cookbook, Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights.
In today’s video, the lovely Brit — whose knack for writing might come from her grandfather, Roald Dahl — teaches us how to make an unbelievably tasty and simple asparagus soup with Parmesan. And you won’t believe there’s no cream involved.
Other recipes from the book include rice pudding with peach puree, pasta puttanesca, fish soup, Eton mess with rhubarb, and flourless chocolate cake. Charming/funny stories abound.
Talk about having yours and eating it, too.

Blind dating. Speed dating. Online dating. You’ve tried everything in your shameless quest to find the perfect man.
So you’ll totally relate to When in Rome. The new film stars Kristen Bell as an ambitious, relationship-challenged New Yorker who takes a whirlwind trip to Rome. There she defiantly steals coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of the men who threw them in.
Her new suitors include a sausage magnate (Danny DeVito), a street magician (Jon Heder), an adoring painter (Will Arnett), and a self-admiring model (Dax Shepard). But when a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) pursues her with equal zest, she’ll have to determine if it’s the work of the coins or the real thing.
Which is still easier than online dating.
