"Kids Love It" Purchased on Mighty Ape

It has some amazing recipes which bring back alot of memories and that was forgotten until now. I am glad I brought it. It will also be one of our family favourites.

"Perfect nerd cookbook"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Everything about this book is great. The recipes are all really easy to follow and in sensible catergories. The measurements are American so they have to be converted but, with the internet having converters everywhere, that's not really much of a problem. Really cool to have the book and chapter of where the food is referenced above the recipes too. Basically a really nifty cookbook that any Harry Potter fan would love.

Purchased on Mighty Ape

First of all, I opened the parcel and this book is hard cover, not paper back which is an awesome added bonus!

It looks amazing,and so do the recipes, however they are in American measurements so need to be converted.

I bought this as a secret santa gift, but now I think I'll buy myself one too!

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Good for any fan of the movies or books. And in some cases of the recipes you can alter the recipes.

"So excited" Purchased on Mighty Ape

I bought this book as a gift for a friend but when I got the chance to look through the recipes it caught my interest, I cant wait to borrow it back so I can do some cooking! all the recipes come with a description of when in the harry potter series they are used and it almost makes you feel apart of the magic.

"Love this"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I have found the bok really enjoybable. I'm not much of cook but the little tidbits linking Harry Potter meals & food as comfort with the history of English cuisine was fascinating. The recipes are written for Americans so be prepared to get out your conversion charts.

“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

“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

“With this cookbook, dining a la Hogwarts is as easy as Banoffi Pie. With more than 150 easy-to-make recipes, tips, and techniques, you can indulge in spellbindingly delicious meals drawn straight from the pages of your favorite Potter stories.” –Maria's Space blog

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

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!” –Pink Apron blog

I love this kind of thing. The cookbook features delicious-sounding dishes that you could easily whip up in your own kitchen.” –Food Lush blog
