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 н ...more
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 t

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 ...more

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 максимал

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
Aug 19, 2011 Jonathan rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
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 recip

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:

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' ...more
Изпълнена с изключителното чуство за хумор на сър Тери Пратчет тази книга е поредното добро намигване към нашите порядки и етикет. Може да те разсмее до сълзи или пък да те разплаче до смях. Решила съм да пробвам да приготвя някоя от рецептите и да видя какъв ще бъде крайният резултат.

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!

Recomendado para los muy fans de Pratchett y del Mundodisco.

Las recetas son geniales y algunas hasta parecen comestibles y todo (excepto las recetas de los enanos -_-)

En la segunda parte del libro, Tata da un sinfín de consejos de etiqueta para múltiples ocasiones y de como comportarse con todas las criaturas del Mundodisco.

Много мила и топла книжка за доброто старо време. Бих се престрашила да опитам някоя рецепта, макар че съм голям карък в кухнята.
Може би някой ден...
Не съжалявам, че малко подраних с нея (понеже трябва да си прочел още някоя и друга книжка за Света на Диска, за да си напълно наясно с напълно всички герои, които така отдадено са предложили своите рецепти).

A fun book, with lots of special guest recipes by various Discworld characters. Some of the voices aren't quite up to Sir Terry's level, but it's still good fun.

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.

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.
Ty recepty jsem si tak úplně neužila, myslím, že na mnohé z nich jsem ještě příliš mladá. Zbytek knihy je však plný mouder a poměrně vtipný. Bohužel nejzajímavější pasáže jsou cenzurované.

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 is Nanny Ogg’s Cookbo

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 Pratch

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.

Ich hatte viel Spaß mit Nanny Ogg, ein Schmunzeln war eigentlich ständiger Begleiter. Auch die Zeichnungen haben mir sehr gut gefallen (am tollsten ist ja die mampfende Katze auf der letzten Seite). Ein paar Rezepte fand ich zwar rein vom Durchlesen weniger nachkochenswert (gibt's das?!), aber ich habe mir auch einiges kopiert, um es mal auszuprobieren. Auch fand ich manche Witze zu platt und manche Anspielungen habe ich bestimmt nicht ganz verstanden, da fehlt mir noch ein bisschen Scheibenwelt ...more

Suroviny jsou dostupné i u nás, takže se i vy můžete o zázračném účinku stařenčiných jídel sami přesvědčit. Bohatě ilustrovaná kuchařka je doplněna mnoha dalšími informacemi, například o stolování trpaslíků i trollů, o filosofii vaření. Přemýšlíte o vhodném dárku pro slečnu či dámu? Už nemusíte.

I received this book as a gift last year, and I understand it had to actually be shipped from Britain - apparently there is no market in the US for funny cookbooks based on fantasy-fiction characters. Besides me, that is.

Anyway, I read more than halfway through it last year and then misplaced it in a pile of other books, and only re-discovered it this week. Finishing it made a great way to procrastinate this afternoon.

Shelves: fantasy-sf, humor, cooking
This is not really a cookbook. The text may, from time to time, arrange itself into recipe-esque formations containing ingredient lists populated by items with descriptions that resemble what you might define as "food," but I repeat: this is not really a cookbook.

Inside the book is a collection of nice-to-know, but not essential-to-own, Discworld trivia. The writing is meta-fan-fiction, an author's attempt at poking at himself from the outside-in. It was an amusing read, but my hopes were dashed

So funny and naughty and sweet--purportedly penned by one of the delightful witches in the funny fantasies I love by the recently (and too, too early) deceased Terry Pratchett. For me, to read Terry Pratchett is to feel that there is sanity and fun in the world, a zany commonality that overrides craziness and our differences. Oh, Terry, Terry, won't you come back?

Since Sir Terry died on March 12 of this year at age 66, after valiantly carrying on for years with early-onset Alzheimer's, I have re

This book is an odd one, because it’s a real book that’s based on a fictional book, which appears in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series. Nanny Ogg’s Cookbook is ostensibly a collection of the witch’s recipes, but I have to admit that I didn’t try any of them.

But they are, at least, all possible, and there’s some additional writing on the Discworld here that you won’t find anywhere else. Unfortunately, the very fact that you won’t find it anywhere else means that I felt compelled to read this, wi

Ако можех да избирам свят, в който да живея, това щеше да е Света на Диска и, по възможност, щях да направя леля Ог своя приятелка. Първо, защото никак не е зле да познаваш вещица и второ, защото леля Ог е точната вещица, ако имаш нужда от закрила и забава (никой да не казва на баба Вихронрав!)

Като оставим настрана това, че са поднесени като на шега, то спокойно може да се каже, че в книгата всъщност присъстват доста прилични рецепти, които могат да бъдат

Sir Terry Pratchett sold his first story when he was thirteen, which earned him enough money to buy a second-hand typewriter. His first novel, a humorous fantasy entitled The Carpet People, appeared in 1971 from the publisher Colin Smythe.

Terry worked for many years as a journalist and press officer, writing in his spare time and publishing a number of novels, including his first Discworld novel,
