We’ve recently learned that “uncertain times” basically means you’ll be cooking a lot. Recipe ideas and quarantine cooking shows have popped up all over the internet from many sources, both reliable (Like Alton Brown’s Quarantine Quitchen) along with questionable at-home-cooks:
Some of us are clearly better prepared than others to be cooking at home every day. But now, no matter your skills in the kitchen you can feast more often than Ron Weasley without spending a single bronze Knut, silver Sickle, or golden Galleon.
You can download a free Harry Potter cookbook from amazon full of dishes inspired by J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world!
Harry Potter’s Cookbook: Magical Collection of Culinary Wonders comes from author Roy Murray. It is filled with 35 recipes “that are constantly enjoyed by the Magical folk attending Hogwarts.” There are traditional dishes, both savory and sweet, enjoyed by Muggles and wizards alike. That includes recipes for custard pie, sticky toffee pudding, chicken and ham pie, and steak and kidney pie.
The book also includes plenty of dishes inspired by the world of Harry Potter. You can learn how to make cauldron cakes, chocolate frogs, butterbeer, pumpkin juice, and exploding bonbons. (These quidditch goggles work great in the kitchen, especially with those more explosive dishes!) Bonus points if you stir with your wand while donning a magical Hogwarts robe!
Also, every recipe comes with an explanation for how it connects to the story.
Harry Potter’s Cookbook: Magical Collection of Culinary Wonders is a fun option to keep staying at home magical.
