The stunning model-turned-author (and granddaughter of beloved author Roald Dahl), Sophie Dahl, debuts her second cookbook, Very Fond of Food: A Year in Recipes, in the May issue of Brides. You can win one of twenty signed copies of the stylish collection of simple and seasonal recipes by visiting our registry page. Good luck!

We asked the recent bride (Dahl married musician Jamie Cullum back in 2010) to share her top registry picks with us:

Nouvel Studio Twist Glasses, $24 each. "These remind me of what you'd be sipping lemonade out of while floating around your garden wearing broderie anglaise"

Shun Reserve Meat Cleaver, $180. " I think everyone should have one of these-anything in the kitchen that seems scary is actually quite fun."

Johnson Bro. "Desert Rose" Dinnerware, $120., "My grandmother, who I've written about often, had china that was similar to this."

Baby Chicken, from $55. "I'm actually scared of birds, but the idea is to have fresh eggs and raise chickens-in reality it would be me running in my nightie flapping around."

For more brilliant registry ideas and from Sophie Dahl, be sure to pick up the May issue of Brides (pg. 174) on newsstands everywhere April 24th. And head over to your nearest bookstore to pick up Very Fond of Food, or find it online.
