The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook - A Magical Mystical Meal

On my day off I sometimes like to indulge in a little thing called the Food Network. Yep, I like watching chefs cook delicious mouthwatering meals that I then crave for the rest of the day. Torture, you say? Well, maybe a little bit. But I just can’t help myself. As I spent my day drooling over a plethora of delightful dishes, I was reminded of a book I have that brings me back to a world which I’m sure almost everyone is very familiar with; the wizarding world of Harry Potter.

I was given years ago a Harry Potter cookbook, which I found to be surprisingly good.  Not only does it give you English favorites like pasties and shepherd’s pie, but it also provides awesome renditions of the magical snacks such as butterbeer, treacle tarts, and cauldron cakes read about in Harry Potter. I’ve tried making some of these recipes, and let me tell you they are pretty darn good. This is actually a really good cookbook all on its own, aside from its cool Harry Potter aspect. So, check it out, try out some recipes, and maybe even have your own Harry Potter party complete with magical witch and wizard snacks.

About Rebecca Lane

Rebecca Lane grew up in the hot desert landscape of Tucson, Arizona where she decided early on she wanted to write, if only to mentally escape her blistering surroundings. She has always been enamored of the arts and literature. As a child she often wrote short stories, and rewrote the endings of novels that she simply could not abide. She received her Undergraduate degree from Sarah Lawrence College in New York, where she was lucky enough to also spend a year studying at Oxford University. While she began her journey dreaming of the day she would sing opera in a large Manhattan theater, she found in the end she could not stand waitressing and simply could not give up books and her hopes of someday writing them. She is currently working as a freelance writer/editor and earning her Masters in English and Comparative Literature from Columbia University.
