Our customer reviews

As an avid Harry Potter fan and something of a gastronomer, I was pretty excited about this book and it is a nice addition to my collection but I felt it lacked creativity in the recipe department and was very much for an American audience... possibly children. What I loved: The author has painstakingly gone through each of the Harry Potter books and referenced every mention of food with a recipe. There are also some interesting historical notes about the origins of certain recipes. What I didn't love: As an Australian and as a foodie, I couldn't help but groan as the author explained the bleeding obvious, a biscuit is a cookie, toffee is like taffy and so on. My annoyance peaked with her note on porridge: "it's actually a real food that real people in the UK eat!" I wasn't sure who this book was aimed at, it quite often seemed to be talking to a child audience (I mean, for heaven's sake, who doesn't know that porridge is a real food?) but the recipes certainly aren't child-levels of ease. The biggest let down for me though? No pictures.show more
