Dark Chococlate and Firewhiskey Caramel Tart – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: The Literary Kitchen #11

Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears.
“After all this time?”
“Always,” said Snape.”

Dark Chococlate and Firewhiskey Caramel Tart

Always! I think I will always be a Potterhead and would love the magical world that J.K. Rowling created, despite the bile inducing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, despite people telling me that they’ve moved over, despite the awful movie version of The Deathly Hallows. That reminds me, did you watch Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them? I loved the film and the adorable beasts. I would love to have my own Bowtruckle and a Demiguise to babysit me. I think I should try making demiguise shaped dinner rolls like Jacob Kowalski in the film. Also, I cheered and hooted at every Harry Potter reference in the film. Continue reading

Pumpkin Pasties – Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: The Literary Kitchen #9

“These hands have made over six million Pumpkin Pasties. I’ve got quite good at them. But what people haven’t noticed about my Pumpkin Pasties is how easily they transform into something else…”
– Trolley Witch, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

She picks up a Pumpkin Pasty. She throws it like a grenade. It explodes.

Pumpkin Pasties – Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: The Literary Kitchen #9

Isn’t the idea of turning Pumpkin Pasties into grenades a bit far-fetched? I mean, I know it’s a magical world and anything can happen, but let’s leave the food alone. What if the magic fails once in a hundred times and the pasties explode in your stomach! Anyhow, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has many such atrocious ideas, Voldemort and Bellatrix making a baby together being one of them. *Shudders* Continue reading

Felix Felicis – Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince: The literary Kitchen #6

“Oho,” said Slughorn again. Harry was sure that Slughorn had not forgotten the potion at all, but had waited to be asked for dramatic effect. “Yes. That. Well, that one, ladies and gentlemen, is a most curious little potion called Felix Felicis. I take it,” he turned, smiling, to look at Hermione, who had let out an audible gasp, “that you know what Felix Felicis does, Miss Granger?”
“It’s liquid luck,” said Hermione excitedly. “It makes you lucky!”
The whole class seemed to sit up a little straighter. Now all Harry could see of Malfoy was the back of his sleek blond head, because he was at last giving Slughorn his full and undivided attention.
“Quite right, take another ten points for Gryffindor. Yes, it’s a funny little potion, Felix Felicis,” said Slughorn. “Desperately tricky to make, and disastrous to get wrong. However, if brewed correctly, as this has been, you will find that all your endeavors tend to succeed… at least until the effects wear off.”
“Why don’t people drink it all the time, sir?” said Terry Boot eagerly.
“Because if taken in excess, it causes giddiness, recklessness, and dangerous overconfidence,” said Slughorn. “Too much of a good thing, you know… highly toxic in large quantities. But taken sparingly, and very occasionally…”

Not really Ginger Newts (Tibetan Kaptse) – Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: The Literary Kitchen #5

Not really Ginger Newts – Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: The Literary Kitchen #5

It’s been a while since I added a new recipe to my series. Well, travelling and a bit of work has been keeping me busy, but now I am planning to be more regular – both, with reading and cooking.

Earlier this year I read Harry Potter books, again, because there was no way I wasn’t making recipes from HP series for The Literary Kitchen. The only dish that stands out for me from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the Ginger Newts. Isn’t Professor McGonagall awesome and so cool? Even when she’s pretending to be cross with Harry? I personally would’ve loved a teacher like her. Continue reading
