Free Book (Kindle/nook) - The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook

The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook Presents: A Magical Christmas Menu: From Cauldron Cakes to Knickerbocker Glory--More Than 150 Magical Recipes for Muggles and Wizards, by Dinah Bucholz, is free in the Kindle store. This appears to be a reduced size edition of The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook ($8.62). There's no description yet on the free edition, but the size is less than half that of the more expensive edition.

Book Description (Hardcover)
Bangers and mash with Harry, Ron, and Hermione in the Hogwarts dining hall.

A proper cuppa tea and rock cakes in Hagrid's hut.

Cauldron cakes and pumpkin juice on the Hogwarts Express.

With this cookbook, dining a la Hogwarts is as easy as Banoffi Pie! With more than 150 easy-to-make recipes, tips, and techniques, you can indulge in spellbindingly delicious meals drawn straight from the pages of your favorite Potter stories, such as:

* Treacle Tart--Harry's favorite dessert
* Molly's Meat Pies--Mrs. Weasley's classic dish
* Kreacher's French Onion Soup
* Pumpkin Pasties--a staple on the Hogwarts Express cart

With a dash of magic and a drop of creativity, you'll conjure up the entrees, desserts, snacks, and drinks you need to transform ordinary Muggle meals into magickal culinary masterpieces, sure make even Mrs. Weasley proud!

Now also free @ B&N. These are 16 recipes excerpted from the full book to make up a special Xmas menu promo, according to the description.

I read the reviews for this during the night. Evidently it is for basic items, such as mashed potatoes. Things that can be had in any cookbook. There is some sort of 'lead in' writing for each recipe, trying to tie in to the HP world.

Yeah, that pretty well sums it up. I can't speak to the full book, but this "selections from" freebie was pretty basic. It's a "Christmas Menu", so it's designed to be an entire dinner menu. I wasn't impressed enough with any of the recipes to try making anything here.

EDIT: Here's the recipe list from the TOC

Appetizers
Cornish Pasties
Creamy Onion Soup

Entree
Classic Road Turkey

Side Dishes
Fluffy Mashed Potatoes [this happens to be my mother's recipe...]
Classic Gravy [also my mother's recipe]
Brussels Sprouts with Chestnuts
Glazed Carrots
Easiest Cranberry Sauce
Irish Soda Bread

Desserts
Christmas Pudding for Kids
Rhubarb Crumble with Custard Sauce
Christmas Trifle
Pumpkin Pie
Peppermint Humbugs
Hot Chocolate

Sounds like a fun idea--too bad the recipes aren't more interesting!

Maybe for me they're more interesting as they are completely different from the Dutch kitchen...
