Anyway, we do not live in a perfect world and it is foresighted and useful for a young woman to become proficient in those arts which will keep a weak-willed man from straying. Learning to cook is also useful. Nanny Ogg, one of Discworld's most famous witches, here passes on some of her huge collection of tasty and interesting recipes. In addition to such dishes as Nobby's Mum's Distressed Pudding, Mrs. Ogg imparts her thoughts on such matters as life, death, and courtship, all in a refined style that should not offend the most delicate of sensibilities. Well, not much. Most of the recipes have been tried out on people who are still alive....

    Преди дни изгубихме един от най-бляскавите умове на фентъзито, ако не и на литературата въобще – за незапознатите нещо като Стивън Хокинг на фентъзийния жанр, споделящ в огромна степен и съдбата на най-великия учен в три космоса околовръст. Каква ирония е най-чистите интелекти, които разбират вселената, живота и всичко останало напълно буквално и ясно като майски ден, да бъдат покосявани от болести на ума и тялото, деградиращи човешките им превъплъщения до тромави телесни черупки, недостойни и неспособни да носят гениалността в една шепа плът и кости. Дядо Тери ни остави богат завет от усмивки и изръмжавания , ярки образи и свръх свежи лафове, и основите и духа на цял поджанр, влюбващ в книгите сума ти поколения деца и позакъснели с материала възрастни. В негова чест, и с много сълзи на очите , се заех с един странен експеримент на словото, трибют към най-опасната по толкова много начини вещица баба Ог – развратна, разгулна и лакомия до шия, но справедлива и по пратчески възможно най-добрата балансьорка между свръх консервативната Вихронрав и ню ейдж модерната Чеснова.Още от първите страници ни посрещат хаотично налепени бележчици от маково-зачервени и хипер изплашени скромни редактори, на които им предстои да издадат творенията на леля Ог, повечето от които явно трябва да правят компания на онази толкова специална книга, която обичайно кисне в огромна кофа с лед и не бива да бъде поглеждана дори с крайчеца на окото, иначе да му мислите, ако ви се пазят разни работи като невинност и духовна чистота. В наглед скромничкия сборник с рецепти, съвети за общуването и поведението на маса, всъщност избухва цялата вселенска, юбер динамична разноликост на настроенията на една вещица, която каквото и да прави, все ще е хубаво, иначе – фрас, прас, и обърканите жаби на тоя свят току- виж се увеличили с още няколко събратя. Въпреки сериозните опити на Ог рецептите даже стават за ядене, след като от тях са трагично премахнати разни работи като арсеник, миши опашки и очи от тритон, и е вкарана в работа мерителната система на грамовете вместо универсалната „малко-мъничко-ей тонинко“, широко използвана в пасторалните общности. И даже джуджешката кухня е тук в отделен абзац, но за съжаление приготовлението ѝ няма да изисква дългогодишни посещения при зъболекаря и гастрото в опити да ви остържат ченето от някой камък, ами гранобитните ястия са се трансформирали в доста прилични печива и кейкчета за чайче.Виж откъм съвети за градинарството леля Ог бива достатъчно изчерпателна да вземете да се сдружите с някой градинар, а за сватби и погребения основно описва етикета на другите към всяка случайно навъртаща се вещица , но пък за любовната страна на нещата няма грешка – от стандартното ухажване в селските общества и критериите за избор на булка, младоженек, кумове и шаферки, до конкретното поведение зад завивките, което обаче е окепазено от няколко възмутени редакторски бележки на прежълтелите от толкова много интимна информация кротки градски издатели, неподготвени за пратческия вариант на нюансите. Между другото в аранжировката на храната доста внимавайте, особено ако имате нещо продълговато, две кръгли неща и нещо което се плиска навсякъде около тях като яйчен крем например, че… Ами представете си го, и аз съм свенлив интелектуалец, ще. Ще ми се да можеше да има повече такива книги, в които зад едно се крие съвсем друго – вълнуващо, неочаквано, и нахилващо до зад ушите, но е вече твърде късно.Липсвате ни, сър Пратчет, дано Смърт да е бил добър към вас, все пак бяхте единствения му истински приятел…

    Sometimes you just have to lighten things up, y'know? As if the jokes-as-philosophy book wasn't light enough.There have been quite a few spin-off books from Pratchett's Discworld series in the years that he's been doing them. Various maps, the Science of Discworld books, plays, films and now this. And I think we can all agree that spin-offs are never quite as good as the original.Oh sure, there are laughs to be had - it is Nanny Ogg, after all. If you don't know who she is, then you need to go through a few of the books in the Witches track of the Discworld series. If you don't have time for that, then let me sum it up for you.In the mountaintop village of Lancre, people still do things in the old ways. They have no real need for modern contrivances or newfangled ideas or, well, change. So in that way, they still see the need for witches where the rest of the world has decided that they're really nothing but interfering old biddies. Of course, they would never say so to their faces....Lancre is the home to three witches. At least, there used to be three. One of them decided to trade it in to be a queen, leaving the elder witches to look after Lancre on their own. Granny Weatherwax is the elder of the two witches, and she is everything you expect in a witch. She's hard as nails, brooks no nonsense, and is the scariest thing in the mountains. She lives alone in her isolated shack, and takes great pride in people knowing that she was one of those people who didn't care what people thought.At her side is the more amiable, but no less powerful, Nanny Ogg. She's usually described as having a face like an apple left in the sun for too long. Unlike Granny, she's a matriarch, the head of a vast family of Oggs, and lives among the people. She has an infectious laugh, chats on and on, and is always ready to try new things.So, of the two, Nanny Ogg is the one who would naturally want to write a book.It's a cookbook, certainly, and contains a great many recipes. I may try some of them sometime, actually, as they are real recipes. The fictitious publishers take great pains to remind us that many of the original ingredients are either inedible or offensive, so while the dishes contained therein many not be authentic, they at least will probably not cause you any discomfort. The recipe I am most eager to try out is Mrs. Whitlow's Artery-Hardening Hogswatch Pie, although the Patrician's recipe for bread and water is tempting, as is Leonard of Quirm's method of making a cheese sandwich.There is a back half of the book as well, dealing mostly in the realm of etiquette and proper behavior. It's very amusing, and covers every situation from weddings to birth to death to visitations by semi-sentient scarecrows. What you really take away from it is that you should certainly be polite to everyone, and you should be especially polite to any witches you might come across. If you know what's good for you, anyway.I will be the first to admit that I'm a huge fan of Pratchett and his Discworld, but there are bigger fans than myself, and it is really for those people that this book was written. For some readers, the original books will never be enough, and they will clamor for any additional content to make the world they love more real. Thus things like the Harry Potter spin-off books, the Dark Tower companion books, and the various additional Discworld texts. If the original books were deficient in some way, if they added extra depth and substance to the characters, then I would collect them all.But this book doesn't really add anything to the Discworld because that world is already vivid and deep, a living world that the novels have brought to life over the last 25 years. I don't need a recipe book to tell me more about Nanny Ogg, and this recipe book doesn't tell me anything about Nanny Ogg - or any other Discworld characters - that I didn't already know.This book is an entertaining gimmick, and I hope that the rabid fans who love this kind of thing have found it to be the kind of thing that they like, to paraphrase Lincoln. But it doesn't inspire me to buy any more non-novel Discworld books. But that's just me.

    I would say a "Must Have" for any Discworld fanatic, but unfortunately it's not a "Must Have"... what it is however is a very fun, whimsical cookbook assembled by our favorite dirty minded witch of Lancre - Nanny Ogg. Though this book does contain recipes (and most of them appear fairly legit) the reason to buy this book is for the old fashioned wisdom that used to come in cookbooks. The more of the Discworld books that you have read, the more you will recognize the names and people mentioned in the recipes. Everyone from the Patrician, to Nobby's Mum, to The King of Lancre have contributed their favorites (Even CMOT Dibbler has contributed his "Sausage-inna-bun recipe). There are also a series of "Ethnic" foods from Klatch, Quirm, Lancre, and many other of the Discworld lands including multiple Dwarven recipes which (include the ever popular "Dwarf Bread.") Throughout the cookbook you will find not only recipes, but also Nanny's quips, and advise, as well as notes from the "editors" who are very concerned about Nanny's tendency towards the vulgar. It is safe to have around the house because the kiddies won't get the references as Nanny always states them with double meaning and a wink. At the end of the book there is a section on life and etiquette which is absolutely hysterical. Having just been married two years ago, the section on weddings nearly had me in tears, specifically the instructional part about how to have the obligatory wedding fight among the guests. Note to those of you wavering about the purchase of this book. It's cute, it's funny, but it is by no means a novel. If you plan to sit down with it and read it as a book, you will be done in less than an hour and will probably be disappointed. If you are the type who has a few "Discworld junkie" friends, this is the perfect help to any party... you can all get together and make dwarf bread and see who's flies the farthest. This would also make an excellent gift for a Discworld fan. If you are planning to put it in your kitchen with the rest of your cookbooks, I would advise getting the hardcover version.

    OMG! This needs to be rated PG-17 -- Strawberry Wobbler?!?! If I made this dish, my husband would have a stroke. This is Nanny Ogg at her naughty best, with apoplectic notes from the editor and the publisher. I sniggered and snerked all the way through.

    Леля Ог си е леля Ог.. дори и "редакторите" едвам успяват да я усмирят и да цензурират част от по-пикантните съвети. Разбира се, от всяка вещица има какво да се научи, но тя за разлика от баба Вихронрав например, е и глава на огромно семейство, така че може да се похвали с доста повече опит в... хм, някои сфери на живота. Смехът е гарантиран, удоволствието също.. за ядивността на рецептите нищо не мога да кажа, защото не съм се престрашила да ги пробвам. Предполагам, че за да се наслади максимално на книжлето обаче, би трябвало човек да е прочел поне няколко книги от серията за вещиците от Света на Диска и да е запознат с основни герои и събития.ПП: Не мога да скрия разочарованието си, че в раздела за етикецията и по-специално празненствата, не намерих извадки от популярни песни като "Таралежът никогаш не мож го избъзика". Вероятно е била трезва, когато се е занимавала с писане.

    Blbůstka pro pravé fanoušky Zeměplochy, kteří mají přečteno vše potřebné na pochopení vtípků. Pro ostatní to musí být dost bizarní kousek, což se mě naštěstí netýká. Nápad je to dobrý a některé kousky opravdu pobavily. Vždy, když kniha přešla v čistou Zeměplochu - pilulky ze sušených žab, Zatracený hlupec Johnson, etiketa u nemrtvých... - bylo to super. Jak se to začalo blížit "Zemneploše", kniha ztrácela šmrnc a originalitu. Každopádně hezká jednohubka, které snad jen chybí ony "cenzurované" části :)

    As expected, hilarious. Also beautifully illustrated :-) I had a kick reading the recipes, and will likely try a few! The part on etiquette is also quite informative, if I may say so myself :D

    Nanny Ogg, Witch of Lancre of the Discworld, all-round purveyor of rude songs and logical common sense, has many pieces of advice to offer us, alongside rather questionable but do-able Discworldian recipes for the least delicate connoisseur of cuisine.I do feel bad for only giving this 2 stars, but my reasons are thus: whilst it gave me incredible joy to read something from the P.O.V. of Nanny Ogg (any of the witches would have done) and whilst there were infrequent titters at the shameless joy Nanny gets from a bit of hanky-panky and fun, it felt a bit like what it is: a little spin-off from a very successful series. Now, don't get me wrong, I love Terry and Discworld and I own all the spin-offs and have read them and read them and read them because adoration is unquenchable, but when you consider it as a book and only a book, it falls short of the mark. The humour was definitely there, but it was sparse and often a little lacklustre. There were nice insights to the characters of Discworld, but I feel a bit cheated because they were a little tame.It was so enjoyable to read, and I don't doubt I will be making the Strawberry Wobbler at some point in the future, but as a book and only as a book, it was just okay.Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Pinterest | Shop | Etsy

    There are several reasons why I love this book. 1. It's a first person perspective of one of my favourite Pratchett characters, Gytha 'Nanny' Ogg. A bawdy, friendly, matriarchal figure who is just beautifully written for. 2. Many of the recipes are provided by other Discworld characters and gives a little additional background and insight into these people, which might otherwise seem a little superfluous shared in the novels themselves. 3. It's a cookbook, so there are actually some decent recipes in there. A few of them are 'adapted' from the original Discworld recipes due to the shortage of certain native ingredients on boring, old Earth. And also certain physical laws which tend to be a teensy-bit more malleable on Discworld. 4. The illustrations provided by Paul Kidby - http://www.paulkidby.com/ - are just wonderful. He's the second official illustrator for the Discworld novels after the passing of Josh Kirby, and there is one particular illustration of a man/rambler meeting a troll for the first time and offering his hand (an insult about the troll's mother in the physical language of the trolls) that just cracks me up every time I see it. There are lots and lots of lovely little touches that you pick up on having read the Discworld series, but it would also be a nice gentle introduction to the humour and characterisations if you have never read any of the books before. If this book doesn't raise a little chuckle or two as you read through it, I would be very surprised.

    There are recipes in this book, but I don't know if the food's actually edible. I think so, though. The recipes are, however, not the reason why I bought Nanny Ogg's Cookbook. I bought it because I love Nanny Ogg. She's one of my favourite characters, not just from the Discworld novels, but all in all. The book is filled with little tips based on her wisdom of life. And boose. And men. We also gets some information about the undead: "At first glance this appears very simple. Nearly everyone you meet is 'undead'. That's why they're called alive. But infact we're talkin' about people who ought to be dead but ain't." Zombies, for example:"They're dead, but they wont lie down [. . .] It is not good manners to make cutting remarks like 'Isn't there something you be doing? Like lying down?' and certainly not 'Decompose yourself.' "The book remains true to the Discworld style, and I really enjoyed it. A bonus is that it's filled with Paul Kidby's illustrations, which I love.

    A hilarious compilation of recipes, Discworld gossip and folklore featuring Nanny Ogg, one of the Discworld's most notable witches. Most of the recipes actually look quite good, although I will need to do some conversions as they're written in UK measurements--which is only to be expected, and I will have to pick up some frogs so I can not add them to the Frog Pills. From the delectable sounding "Sticky Toffee Rat Onna Stick" to the "Knuckle Sandwich" and "Mrs. Gogol's Clairvoyant Gumbo," there's a good variety of sweet, savory, meat and meatless dishes, including my favorite simple recipes "Bread and Water" and "The Librarian's Recipe For Banana."This will be staying on my Keeper shelf with the rest of my Discworld collection--and I do intend to open it again and actually try some of this stuff. :)

    Not only a great read...but has some legitimately tasty recipes included. I mainly bought the book because, well. Because I but EVERY T Pratchett book. Figured it would be an entertaining read, and honestly only made the first recipe as a way to kill a rainy afternoon.Shockingly, while they aren't going to end up on a 4-star menu, there ARE some really tasty recipes to pick from. I now own 2 copies - one to read, and one that is starting to look a bit battered from various culinary splashes.

    Much obliged for an authoritative explanation of roast figgins. Must try the recipes for Sergeant Angua's vegetable stew and that Unseen University faculty favorite, Wow Wow sauce (first locating a thaumatologically inert glass bottle and stopper, of course). Etiquette tips on how to entertain duchesses, witches, and that gentleman who drops weasels down his trousers for a living should come in handy!

    I just started reading the Discworld series and I'm enjoying it so much I had to get this cookbook to immerse myself into the world. Hilariously funny humour and anecdotes as well as some good advice with a chuckle. Some of the recipes are naughty but actually sound like they'd taste pretty good. It's all in the aaaaa..... presentation. Need to do some conversions though since it is from the UK and is in metrics. The strawberry wobbler will need a modified presentation if you're going to serve it to the kids! Look forward to making some of them soon!

    This is the first and only book I've read about Discworld and so I should not judge the series or the author from just this. But it really was not all the that good. A book of recipes by the character, Nanny Ogg. It also expounded on other traditions of Discworld. I might have to read something from that series before judging this book as only being ok.

Toto je ďalšia z tých bonusových kníh, ktorú by si mal zadovážiť, každý fanúšik zeměplochy a, keď nadíde čas, aj skúsiť niektorý z preslávnych receptov stařenky Oggové.

    I thought I had read all the Discworld books! Well, I’ve read all the Discworld novels, it turns out. There are other Discworld books out there—faux-nonfiction set in-universe to fulfill that weird sector of the book market where the books are essentially merchandise for other books. It’s a weird sort of metamarketing that I’m never sure what to make of, despite owning a whole bunch of “companion books” for some of my more expansive geeky canons.One of these amusing extras isNanny Ogg’s Cookbook, in which a collection of recipes serves as an understructure for a whole lot of jokes. An odd thing about this book—besides its content—is that it seems to have been accidentally published with all the notes between the publisher and the agent left in. Most of these notes are arguing about what is and isn’t appropriate to publish, since Nanny Ogg generally offends people’s delicate sensibilities, and apparently her previous books had made the publisher’s wife laugh. The text itself also contains a number of allusions to leaving out certain “active” ingredients, such as arsenic, and some others which are unnamed. Since Discworld does not follow in the fine old fantasy tradition of loading itself up with lots of food porn, the way that ASoIaF and Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings and Redwall and basically all of the others do, instead preferring to dwell on the disgustingness of literally everything in Ankh-Morpork, the editors of this book have apparently had to alter the recipes quite a lot so that they become decent recipes that regular humans on Roundworld would ever eat. The caveat here is that the Roundworlders who do decide to make these recipes have to be British or at least be able to cook in British, because most of the measurements are given in metric and some of the ingredients are either named differently or are things I’m not sure we have in the US. I’m pretty sure “bicarbonate of soda” is baking soda, but I don’t know how much butter is 500mg and I don’t know what suet is. (OK, Google tells me it is “hardened beef or mutton fat” and how do you cook with this and WHY do you cook with this?) Nanny Ogg appears to have collected these recipes from a number of notable personages in the Discworld, and so there appears Lord Vetinari’s recipe for bread and water, which involves a billion taste tester and several years of political manipulation, and Leonard of Quirm’s recipe for cheese sandwiches, which involves inventing all sorts of machines for making bread and cheese and then ordering some pizza. (There are also quite a number of regular recipe for curries, various English country dishes, candies, and things with names like “bananana surprise.”)While I think I have to give the copy I read back to the friend I borrowed it from, I fully intend to borrow it back and try out some of these recipes just as soon as I learn to cook with the metric system.Originally posted at http://bloodygranuaile.livejournal.co....

    Continuando na minha tradição de começar o ano lendo Pratchett (esse é o quê? O terceiro ou quarto ano consecutivo?), o primeiro livro a sair da estante no alvorecer de 2012 foi o livro de receitas da tia Ogg. E que livro, pessoas... que livro...Para quem não conhece (embora a essa altura não acredito que algum leitor do Coruja que não conheça), Gytha Ogg é parte da respeitável trindade de bruxas de Lancre que aparecem em Estranhas Irmãs, Quando as Bruxas Viajam e mais uma pá de livros de Pratchett ainda não lançados em português. Ela é a pessoa mais próxima da poderosa Vovó Cera do Tempo, já enterrou mais de um marido, tem um monte de filhos (cujas esposas têm verdadeiro terror dela) e um gato – Greebo – que ela considera uma coisinha fofa, mas é uma das criaturas mais ferozes e mortais do Disco.O livro começa com uma troca de memes entre os editores que, já vacinados contra o repertório humorístico de tia Ogg, revisam o texto para ter certeza que a esposa de um deles não vá encontrar motivos para rir histericamente dos comentários altamente ambíguos da bruxa (sem sucesso, adianto logo), para, em seguida, se desdobrar entre receitas colhidas de todos os pontos do Disco (algumas incluindo ingredientes peculiares, como o arsênico do humbugs de menta de Lorde Downey, presidente da Guilda dos Assassinos); conselhos para a vida e instruções de etiqueta.É claro que não-iniciados no mundo do Disco não terão o total benefício de ler Nanny Ogg’s Cookbook porque, para entender a graça por trás de algumas receitas, é necessário conhecer o personagem que está por trás delas – e o contexto em que estão incluídos. Pontos extras valem para quem reconhece alguns dos pratos mais exóticos, como o molho Wow Wow passado de geração em geração na família do Arquichanceler Mustrum Ridcully e que é usado em Hogfather para curar a ressaca do Oh, Deus de todas as Ressacas.Não obstante, embora tia Ogg tenha realmente uma mente bastante poluída e não seja lá a especialista em etiqueta que acredita ser, muitos de seus conselhos e lições têm um bom fundo de verdade e bom senso.Seja como for, é um livro bem divertido – não experimentei nenhuma das receitas porque elas precisariam de algumas adaptações para funcionar em nosso mundo (nem todas, mas a maioria...) e não sou exatamente uma sumidade na cozinha (para não dizer que sou um desastre). Acho que vou levar o livro para o Dé quando for para Fortaleza no final do mês e verei se ele topa fazer algum prato típico do Disco para mim...É tão bom ter amigos que sabem cozinhar...

    This book combines two amazing things, Terry Pratchett's beloved witch and cooking. 4.25 stars is probably a better rating but this will have to do. I laughed and enjoyed this cookery book.
