Sophie Dahl may have made her name modeling, but these days, she's devoted to writing--no surprise as she is the granddaughter of author Roald Dahl. Dahl the younger recalls that The James and the Giant Peach author loved food but couldn't really make it for himself. "He could do basics, and used to make a delicious sandwich for us when we were children, involving crispy bacon and marmalade," she says.
