    What would you say if I told you that you could make treacle tarts, pumpkin juice, and meat pies that would put the Hogwarts Great Hall to shame?

    You would say "wicked," obviously.


    The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook is filled with all of the delicious, magical recipes from your favorite wizarding world — and don't worry, they're all perfectly safe for Muggles.

    Let your mouth water at the thought of lemon drops, cauldron cakes, and pumpkin pasties, all listed with easy-to-follow instructions and context from the Harry Potter books themselves.

    For example, the lemon drop recipe above may list how to make these sweet candies, sure. But it also makes a reference to a conversation between Harry and Professor McGonagall in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secret, which is what makes this book so darn cool.

    Plus, the recipes in this cookbook are VAST. They offer everything you could possibly want on any given day, focusing on a banana bunch of English foods that range from savory to sweet.,

    Like French onion soup. Yum.

    And all the students from the Slytherin, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff houses (aka Amazon reviewers) have spoken — and they love this cookbook more than Ron loves Hermione.

    "I LOVE THIS. I'm no master chef, but this cookbook might change that: I might even become a master wizard chef! Anyways, the recipes are phenomenal. The book has a bunch of cute references, and my younger siblings go crazy whenever I make something from this book. I most recently made the meat and potato pies, which can be found on page 44." —Tigerlily

    "I absolutely love this book! It's incredibly fun and whimsical to read through, and the actual pages themselves are made to look as if they are from a tattered spellbook." —anavringrrl

    "So. Much. Fun! You can tell a lot of work went into putting this book together. My husband and and I made a meal together and we had a great time (all whilst listening to the Harry Potter soundtracks). He made the roast chicken, I made the pumpkin pasties, and both turned out great! We can't wait to try the next dish and dessert!" —T.H.Ratledge

    "There are a LOT of recipes in this book. What I like about it is that every recipe comes with an excerpt on where the dish can be found in the Harry Potter books, like I love the recipe for marshmallows and lemon drops!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+.

    Me, when a hater tells me I'm probably too old to be spending my Friday night drinking pumpkin juice:
