Are you a die-hard Potterhead with a passion for cooking? Or are you planning a party for a fan?


  1. Read the books. You can't make a meal if you don't know what you're basing it off of.
  2. Plan the table. Wizard families do not fit a certain stereotype or lifestyle, but it's good to incorporate medieval and/or non-conventional items. Try adding candlesticks and a dramatic table runner, or use an old bottle as a vase for a Weasley-ish touch.
  3. Start with an appetizer. Consider all of the foods mentioned in the books. A safe bet is rock cakes, a la Hagrid. Bake biscuits, and add currents or raisins. For a touch of authenticity, burn the cakes slightly, so that they are hard to chew.
  4. Think about the main course. Wizards eat many of the same things as muggles, but there are some definite dishes. Bouillabaisse was served at the feast for the schools in the Triwizard Tournament. Try a meat pie or Yorkshire pudding, if you're adventurous. Pretty much anything mentioned in the books is fair game.
  5. Make a memorable dessert. Many desserts are mentioned throughout the series. In Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, the Sorting Feast featured "Blocks of ice cream in every flavour you could think of, apple pies, treacle tarts, chocolate eclairs and jam doughnuts, trifle, strawberries, gelatin and rice pudding." Also consider the candies of the Wizarding World-- Chocolate Frogs and Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans can be purchased, but they can also be made. Try making Sugar Mice out of marshmallows, or use Jelly Babies as Pepper Imps. Be creative!
  6. Consider the drinks. Everyone's favourite go-to is butterbeer, but there are many more options. Try serving spiced pumpkin juice (it can be purchased online) or a pot of tea. For the adults, try mixing whiskey with hot sauce to create something akin to fire whiskey.
