>> 2009 has been a big year of change for Sophie Dahl — she got engaged to jazz musician Jamie Cullum in March, and now the rumors that she is getting her own cooking show have been confirmed. Dahl published her first cookbook, Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights: Guilt-free Eating with Abandon, last year; her upcoming show, which is as-yet-untitled, will air next year on BBC Two in the UK, featuring a mix of recipes from the book and Sophie revisiting "treasured and nostalgic" places which relate to the recipes.
The show, which will consist of six episodes, each with a different theme, is being produced by Jamie Oliver's television company. “Cooking often serves as an emotional barometer, and with this show we will run the gamut — from a solo dinner that suits melancholy to a homecoming feast for 20,” Dahl elucidated. “It’s cooking with an anecdotal thread — irreverent, unpredictable and not without flaw.”
