Sophie Dahl’s Eton Whores And 9/11 Cricket

by | 1st, April 2010

SOPHIE Dahl hs written Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights. It’s a cook book to go with her cooking show. The Telegraph digests and features Dahl in conversation:

She wasn’t inhibited by having a celebrated literary grandfather, Roald Dahl, from writing her own books…

She’s made of solid stuff. But not of her food is:

Too much rosewater in the rhubarb Eton mess, she warns, produces an effect “like walking into a bordello”.

And then she is in New York. It is 9/11:

“I was anxious and frightened but there was not a great deal I could do except make another cup of tea and scrabble through old evening bags for a cigarette. Friends came over and we sat in silence and shock, watching the news. In the silence afterwards, you heard crickets. You heard birds. I remember thinking: we may never in our lifetime hear silence in New York again.”

So. Not all bad, then. Al Qaeda did it for Gaia…
