"After a long winter's day, ever wish you could just cozy up in the Burrow and have Molly Weasley whip you up a little roast chicken with mashed potatoes? Now you can...with a bit of Muggle work. There are some delectable-sounding treats, including a lot of stick-to-your-ribs winter fare. It sure is fun cooking to these literary references. And if you have any plans to throw a Harry Potter theme party, this cookbook is a must-have."

--GeekMom

"Awesome gift idea for the avid reader who loves the Harry Potter series."

--The Greatest Gift Guide

"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

"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."

--Epicurious

--Bustle

"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!"

--Pretty52

"The Harry Potter series is filled with all sorts of fantastic magic, but some of the most memorable moments are centered around the fantastic edibles that J. K. Rowling created. Lucky for all of us muggles, Dinah Buchholz has penned The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook, a guide to recreating all sorts of witchy and wizardy vittles introduced throughout the series."

--Serious Eats

"The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook will help you make magic in the kitchen for wizards and muggles alike."

"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

"This cookbook is extremely comprehensive. With more than 150 recipes, it includes foods explicitly mentioned in the Harry Potter books. The author includes historical tidbits about the recipes. I love this kind of thing. The cookbook features delicious-sounding dishes that you could easily whip up in your own kitchen."

--Business Insider

"We love it!! In fact, we're such geeks, my husband and I planned our weekly date nights around this book. This book has everything Harry Potter. Not only does this cookbook have delicious recipes that make me feel like I'm in the Harry Potter story, but it cites each recipe from the book, so I know exactly where to imagine myself while eating these delicious treats. So...if you are geeky (like we are) and love good recipes (which we do), I highly recommend this cookbook!"

This was such a cool cookbook. I love that you can actually make the recipes. The aesthetic of the book is amazing, I love the uneven pages and how the book feels “old”.

Aries - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
I bought this book for a 10 year old and it is WAY too advanced. The author wrote the recipes as part of her own made up story which means there is a ton of text on each page instead of just the recipe. There are no pictures at all so the book is just black lettering. Technically this book has recipes that were mentioned in the books, but it is not a fun or appealing book.

Great cookbook! Recipes made simple. The pages are rough-edged, giving it an authentic look. I also like that each reside has a quote from the book where it is referenced. I just wish there were pictures!
