Boggis was a chicken farmer. He kept thousands of chickens. He was enormously fat. This was because he ate three boiled chickens smothered with dumplings every day for breakfast, lunch and supper.

Here we go! First post for 2015 (and the first post in almost two months-whoops)!
A lot of you are in the US, UK or Canada, and since it’s your winter time, I’m sending you this super comforting food. It’s chicken and dumplings, from Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr. Fox. For most of Roald Dahl foods, I tend to start with a sketch book, but as this is a simple meal, I looked to the cookbook, ‘Roald Dahl’s Revolting Recipes’, put together by his wife Felicity.
It’s a playful book, pulling out some of our favourite foods from his stories–Snozzcumbers to Frobscottle and Bruce Bogtrotter’s Cake. And it was just what I needed to get my inspiration flowing again for this coming year.
