Harry Potter Book Night


Yesterday, February 5th, was the first ever Harry Potter Book Night. Given that around here there were no events planned, I decided to organise our own Harry Potter Book Night with a very special dinner and movie session. Here is the menu: 


Harry Potter Party Decorations - Quidditch Players Pie - Harry Potter inspired food
Quidditch Players Pie: As you know, quidditch players need a lot of energy to play this fascinating sport. So the best way to get this energy is with a good old pie. I found this recipe on Smith Bites and added my own touches to make this fantastic pie. Basically it's made with beef, cooked carrots and onions simmered in an onion gravy and a layer of mashed potatoes on top. All baked in the oven for 15 minutes. 

The result was delicious and it gave us all the energy to play quidditch afterwards, eh..., I mean... to watch Harry play afterwards (yes, that's more believable). 

Cauldron Cakes - Harry Potter inspired food - Harry Potter Party
Cauldron Cakes: these are a firm favourite in the wirzarding world of Harry Potter. They can be bought from the Honeydukes Express trolley on the Hogwarts Express or at Honeydukes Sweetshop in Hogsmeade. 

I found this recipe in the amazing web Food in Literature and the result was a roaring succes. I could totally picture myself on a snowy day in Hogsmeade enjoying this chocolate fantasy. They were still warm inside when we ate them. Amazing!

On my next Bookish Recipe, I will share with you how I made these delicious cauldron cakes. Stay tuned!

Butterbeer - Harry Potter inspired food - Harry Potter Party
Butter Beer: a Harry Potter party would not be complete without Butterbeer. 

"Why don't we go and have a butterbeer in the Three Broomsticks, it's a bit cold, isn't it?"—Hermione Granger inviting Harry Potter to the Three Broomsticks Inn. 

This popular wizarding beverage is served at numerous locations in the wizarding world and has a very slight alcoholic content. Our favourite trio of wizards usually go to the Three Broomsticks to have a butterbeer. 

This recipe also comes from the amazing web Food in Literature and it tastes really good. Definitely a must have on a night like this. 

After enjoying this fabulous dinner (with my Hogwarts jumper), we watched Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, which was the perfect ending to this magic night. I hope you all enjoyed #HarryPotterBookNight!
