Nanny Ogg's Cookbook

***** Nanny Ogg's Cookbook by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Briggs. Fantasy.

I suppose you could call this a cookbook, but it's much more
about Nanny Ogg than it is about the recipes. And let's face it--I bought it for the fantasy, not for the food.

There are "recipes" for a lot of the foods you'll find in the Discworld books: dwarf bread, rat onna stick, dried frog pills... You could even quite possibly make some of the recipes in here for a lovely Discworld party and invite some of your savvier friends.

But it's mostly lovely little tidbits about various Discworld characters--primarily Nanny Ogg, but a few other characters get some space here, too.

If you're familiar with the Discworld, you won't find it at all surprising that it's been heavily edited--they tried to take out the innuendos, but I think they found that was a losing proposition, and settled for taking out just the blatant stuff.

And if you're not familiar with the Discworld, and happen to find a copy of this at your library, go ahead and pick it up, and see if it doesn't just convince you that the Discworld is a place you'd like to visit.

My husband got it both for the fantasy and for the recipes. He's bought a giant bag of poppy seeds to try the dwarf bread.
Oh, fun! I hope you'll let me know how it turns out!
