Though we Muggles will never get to taste life in the wizarding world, we must console ourselves with sampling the food Rowling writes about so lovingly. In this class, we will learn all about cooking in a magical way: by recreating some of the best dishes Hogwarts and the Wizarding World have to offer.
Meets for 45-60 minutes once per week for 8 weeks.
Each school year at Hogwarts begins with a celebratory meal in its cavernous Great Hall. No doubt those magnificent meals left an indelible impression on a young Harry, who hungered for more when living with his Muggle relatives: a feeling of kinship and of family that he clearly lacked; a desire to know his clouded past, which had been carefully and deliberately hidden from him at all costs by his duplicitous uncle and aunt, the detestable Dursleys; and most of all, a desire to realize who he truly is, living in two diametrically opposed worlds, the unimaginative Muggle world and the enchanting world of wizards, his true home.
In this class, we will recreate some fantastic recipes from the movies and books. Custom recipes will be shared, and we will immerse ourselves in the Wizarding World of culinary delight!
