Product Description

Imported from USA


"If your kids love Harry Potter, nothing is going to inspire them to get in the kitchen like this cookbook.
Some of the best parts of the Harry Potter books are the rich descriptions of the holiday feasts at the Great Hall. With
this book, your kids can make Harry's favorite dessert (treacle tart, of course). They can make the mince pies that Mrs.
Weasley sends Harry every Christmas, and the pumpkin pasties from the Halloween feast scene I loved reading as a kid.
They can even make Mrs. Dursley's pudding—the one Dobby destroys in the beginning of The Chamber of Secrets. As long as
you don't mind your kids going down the weird meat-pie, haggis, and Scotch collop–filled path that is the world of
British food, this book is sure to be a hit."


"Cooking dishes from popular fantasy books—from Harry Potter to A Game of Thrones to the Twilight vampire tales—has
become a pastime for fans seeking to immerse themselves in their favorite fictional worlds. Literary foodies are trading
tips on how to cook eel pie and nettle soup, sharing ideas on blogs, YouTube and Twitter, and occasionally scoring
cookbook deals. The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook, which came out last year, has sold more than 150,000 copies."

—The Wall Street Journal

"Manage all your kitchen mischief, such as Cauldron Cakes and Molly’s meat pies. We won’t tell if you pretend your
mixing bowl is a cauldron."


"This book could rightly be regarded as something like a portkey; to open it is to at once be transported back to a
living world of … culinary delights. A pleasant stroll down memory lane with old friends. It’s a walk worth taking for
many reasons, not least of which is the abundance of good eating to be shared along the way."

—Flavorful World

"If your loved one in a whiz in the kitchen, they’ll love the Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook. This top-rated cookbook
has recipes for all the classic Harry Potter treats, from Treacle Tart to Pumpkin Pasties. Maybe if you’re lucky, the
recipient will share the magical results with you!"


"Includes recipes for the fictional foods from the series, like cauldron cakes and treacle, and is a fun way to get kids
interested in Harry Potter also interested in food."

—New York Magazine

"Maybe you already have all seven volumes of Harry Potter, but do you have the unofficial cookbook? Featuring delicious
recipes from the wizarding world, including Cauldron Cakes and Butterbeer, it's the only guide you need to throwing the
ultimate Hogwarts-style feast."


"The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook is filled with all of the delicious, magical recipes from your favorite wizarding
world — and don't worry, they're all perfectly safe for Muggles. Let your mouth water at the thought of lemon
drops, cauldron cakes, and pumpkin pasties, all listed with easy-to-follow instructions and context from the Harry
Potter books themselves. For example, the lemon drop recipe … makes a reference to a conversation between Harry and
Professor McGonagall … which is what makes this book so darn cool. Plus, the recipes … offer everything you could
possibly want on any given day, focusing on a banana bunch of English foods that range from savory to sweet."


"The food in the Harry Potter series has had us drooling for over a decade … but now you can finally make your own! The
Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook will have you performing absolute magic in the kitchen … . These easy-to-follow recipes
are apparently delicious and don't require you to be a master chef either, meaning this is an essential book for
yourself and for any budding chefs in the family. Time to dust off your cauldrons and get cooking!"


"A truly brilliant idea that combines a beloved children's literary classic with an old-fashioned recipe book. Designed
to look and feel more like a literary companion with excerpts from the books providing context for each recipe … your
little wizard will be able to serve up a pint of freshly made pumpkin juice, then imagine he's sitting down to a feast
in the Hogwarts dining hall."
