Sophie Dahl is a novelist, model, and granddaughter of children's book author Roald Dahl—and now she has a cooking show—that's actually much more than a cooking show, says Eater. "Dahl takes it so very far: Her recipe box is sorted by categories like Stressed, Romantic, Celebratory, and Melancholy, and in completely non-food related segments, she espouses how romantic train stations are and walks wistfully through graveyards, saying 'I think people might that wanting to spend time in a graveyard for the romance of it is a bit ghoulish and Wednesday Adams, maudlin and sinister to some. I think it's totally fascinating.' And then she'll finish each show by reading poetry to you." [Eater]
