Have you ever fancied having a Harry Potter feast similar to the ones you’ve read about in the Harry Potter series?
I don’t know about you, but I don’t have house-elves slaving away in the kitchen. So, when I throw a Harry Potter feast, it’s pretty much on me to figure out what to serve and how to make it!
And so, in the spirit of making your life easier and your feast more magical, I’ve got some wonderful Harry Potter recipes I think you’ll love!
What food is served at Hogwarts?
Throughout the Harry Potter series, we hear many wonderful descriptions of the food served both in the magical community and in the muggle community.
From the food Aunt Petunia makes, but Harry doesn’t always get to eat. To the candy from the trolley on the Hogwarts Express when Harry is introduced to all the wonderful candy treats of the magical world. I have to say, the recipes in Harry Potter all seem mouth-watering!
And then, there are the phenomenal feasts that take place at Hogwarts! It starts with the Welcome Feast on the first night of school. After a long trip northward on the Hogwarts Express, and then across the cold lake to the castle. By the time the students actually make it to the Great Hall and the sorting is finished, they are ready for some food!
We also hear about the Halloween feast, the Christmas feast and the Last Day of Term Feast. Each of these is laden with delicious-sounding foods.
The traditional Hogwarts feast includes foods like roast beef and roast chicken, boiled and roasted potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, peas, carrots, and gravy. There is always an overabundance of food and choices of food!
What are Harry Potter’s favorite foods?
In case you’re wondering what Harry’s favorite foods are, here’s how it went for him at the Welcome Feast on his first night at Hogwarts.
Harry’s mouth fell open. The dishes in front of him were now piled with food. He had never seen so many things he like to eat on one table: roast beef, roast chicken, pork chops and lamb chops, sausages, bacon and steak, boiled potatoes, roast potatoes, fries, Yorkshire pudding, peas, carrots, gravy, ketchup, and, for some strange reason, peppermint humbugs...
Harry piled his plate with a bit of everything except the peppermints…
Harry helped himself to a treacle tart…Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
What do you serve at a Harry Potter party?
But, here’s something I’ve noticed. When we muggles try to throw a magical Harry Potter feast, we tend to focus on foods like pumpkin pasties, treacle tarts, chocolate frogs and butterbeer. Which I happen to think are way more magical than a roasted chicken!
So, in the spirit of giving you what you want, here are some wonderful Harry Potter recipes that will be perfect for your Harry Potter feast!
