A fun, new cookbook!

HarryPotterCookbookbfLOYes, I know – exactly what I need, right? Still, when Rich’s brother emailed me about it I was intrigued. Then, finding ourselves at Borders with a 40% off coupon – well – who could resist?

I DID find a typo – and in a headline, too!
On page 63, Kreacher’s French Onion Soup (which actually looks quite good) is titled ‘Kreaher’s French Onion Soup’.

Hmmm. My old proofreader Manya would NOT have let that slip through.

Slap-dash editing aside; this is a fun book, and I’ve found quite a few tempting tasties to try – the almond-ginger-peach treacle tart for one, and Dudley’s Knickerbocker Glory for another. There is also a recipe for pumpkin pasties, but you are on your own if you’d care to sample that – pumpkin is right up there with anise and dill on my list of ‘foods I loathe with every fiber of my being.’

02GuinnessStewPotbfLOWith the weather definitely feeling more autumnal, I am also likely to try the Beef and Guinness Stew – maybe pairing it with one of Rich’s Guinness Cakes for dessert. A bit of each, some popovers and a nice red wine – sounds like dinner to me!

Don’t forget! It’s your last day to vote on whether or not I dare to defy logic and make the deviled macaroni and cheese casserole. Review the recipe and vote in the comments, or feel free to email me and offer up your opinion.

Even better, if you’d like to wangle an invitation to dinner for the unveiling – write and ask – we’ll see what can be worked out. The recipe claims to be easy on the budget (13¢ per serving back in the day) – could be just the thing for feeding a crowd 😉
