Filled with recipes and stories to make you laugh and blush plus etiquette on how to deal with dwarves, trolls, undead, etc. rules you never knew existed, and rules that don't apply to Nanny Ogg. This is a must have for fans of the discworld series (if you haven't read them first you probably won't understand why this book is so funny) You'll love making all your favorites like dried frog pills, rat onna stick, sausage inna bun and strawberry wobbler.

I really do love this cookbook. I was going to get it anyway just because it is Terry Pratchett, but the recipes are delicious and I enjoyed making them. There are a few that are a little difficult to make on a practical day to day basis (like the mushroom ketchup) but some of the others are easy to make and very yummy and satisfying. Try Nanny Ogg's special nibbles and Chocolate Delight with special secret sauce.

I really didn't expect there to be any useful recipes in this, but a lot of them look very good. I will be skipping the banana soup though. I love the little notes from the "publisher" Goatburger to the "overseer" Thos. Cropper, and the rules of etiquette suit me just fine. A lovely light read and possible source of some nice English recipes.

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.

LOVE it! It's one of my favorite books and not just because I wish I could live on Discworld (although, I do). It's full of fun, interesting (and most are actually edible) recipes and lots of pithy sayings from inhabitants of Discworld. I used the recipe for Sheeps Eyeball's at a Halloween Party with great success. :D

Read it for the recipes, read it for the entertainment value, read it for Nanny Ogg's advice on manners, life and love. The recipes are all in metric measure, but then, you didn't necessarily buy it for the recipes, now did you?Not my favorite Pratchett book, but maybe it will move up the list once I've tried the Strawberry Wobbler....
