I got this a few Christmases ago from my sister in law, who also loves Harry Potter.

This is a great book, that's filled with very interesting, mainly English recipes. Some of them are a bit unusual, to someone like me, who's not used to eating them.

There are a well balanced mix of complex dishes as well as really basic ones. This book is good for novice and expert cooks alike. It would be an interesting book to use with a kids cooking class, to help them engage with learning recipes, and possibly trying new foods.

I also love the headers of the uses of food throughout the Harry Potter books. It's also got some great tidbits of history, and how food was introduced and used in the past. ( )

I can't cook a lot of recipes in this book, because they're meat-based. That's the problem with most traditional British foods. Still, some of them have been adapted so that even a vegetarian could make them. The only recipe I've tried so far is the Mince Pies which are DELICIOUS, and I don't even like pie!

Each recipe is preceded by a short summary of a Harry Potter excerpt. (Since this is an "unofficial" and unlicensed cookbook, no actual quotes are used, which is a little annoying.) But the best thing about this book are the little fun food facts that also accompany each recipe. For instance, did you know that if you eat a Mince Pie every day during the 12 days of Christmas, you'll have a good year?
