The Delicious Miss Dahl…
I don’t know very much about Sophie Dahl, apart from the obvious fact of her being a certain authors granddaughter. I knew she had been a model, but she has never been a centre of interest for me.
Well I recorded this on Tuesday night, and today I finally got round to watching it.
To be quite honest I was pretty fed up of hearing all the bad vibe about it. Something about her kitchen not actually being her kitchen. And her strutting around trying to seduce the audience HELLO it’s television?
Regardless of that. TV is TV. And the majority of TV is fake. Studios, costume etc. It doesn’t take a whiz kid to work out that all the aesthetic put together was to make the show more appealing for the viewers.
I do enjoy cookery programmes and I did very much enjoy this episode named ‘Selfish’. It was creative and the chocolate pots in particular looked scrumptious!
The quirky titles and illustrations are completely after my own heart. I LOVE things like this. I loved how the recipes were on such cute pieces of card.
The kitchen is so shabby chic. It is a dream. It’s so girly but nice girly. Not pink in your face, it’s just beautiful, with a vintage feel. Ahhh and the shelf that was just full of books and random artefacts!
Despite what the critics are saying. I enjoyed this programme, and I enjoyed watching Sophie, she was friendly and quirky and I strongly disagree with people who are saying nasty things about her.
Note to self: series link! && I am hoping there will be an equally as adorable book to go along with this series.
