Make Asparagus Soup with Sophie Dahl

Make Asparagus Soup with Sophie Dahl

Welcome to the Dahl House

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.

Available online at amazon.com. For more detailed instructions, recipes, and pictures from Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights, check out our photo gallery.
