I am a huge Anthony Bourdain fan, and I love reading about his journey to discover food and all of the unseen and sometimes unsavory processes that go into getting it onto our plate.
To be honest most of Sarah Addison Allen's books feature food prominently in the story lines, everything from flower and herbs that can enhance certain moods, to cakes that can magically call people back home, these books always make me hungry!
Based on the popular TV show this book has so much more than recipes, it has science and history and stories and just all kinds of foodie goodness.
Butter Beer, Chocolate Frogs, Pumpkin Pasties, Fizzing Whizbees, Treacle Tart, food plays a huge part in the world of Harry Potter and is one of the many delectable details that makes this such a great series.
Fun little book full of stories and trivia about famous people and food, a perfect quick tidbit book for impressing friends and family at the dinner table.
