Nanny Ogg's Cookbook

Nanny Ogg's Cookbook

a beautifully illustrated collection of recipes and reflections on life from one of the most famous witches from Sir Terry Pratchett’s bestselling Discworld series


Steel yourselves - Nanny Ogg is passing on some of her most interesting recipes and her most refined wisdom.

'Probably the best and certainly the tastiest of the Discworld spin-offs' - The Times

'They say that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach which just goes to show they're as confused about anatomy as they gen'rally are about everything else, unless they're talking about instructions on how to stab him, in which case a better way is up and under the ribcage.' Nanny Ogg

Nanny Ogg, one of Discworld's most famous witches, is passing on some of her huge collection of tasty and above all interesting recipes. But in addition to the delights of the 'Strawberry Wobbler' and 'Nobby's Mum's Distressed Pudding', Mrs Ogg imparts her thoughts on social etiquette, life, death, courtship, children and weddings, all in a refined style that should not offend the most delicate of sensibilities. Well, not much...

Jam-packed with recipes favoured (or not!) by the great and good of the Discworld, full of Nanny Ogg's unique wisdom and way with words, and peppered with apoplectic notes from the editor and the publisher, this is a treasure trove of literary, culinary and comic delights.

A must- purchase for any fan of the legendary Sir Terry Pratchett.

*Most of the recipes have been tried out on people who are still alive.
