A Harry Potter Movie Night, complete with a movie, british food, and a HP painting.
My tribute to HP:
Not bad for a novice…
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone:
Review: This movie doesn’t need a review. It’s a GIANT book series and an even bigger movie franchise. If you haven’t seen it yet, you’re the only one. Git it together! It still amazes me that these guys were around ten years old, and were able to pull this off. This is a 5 star movie if I’ve ever seen one. And that’s all I have to say about it.
Rating: 5 stars out of 5.
All of these items were mentioned in Harry Potter at some point and are british specialties.
Treacle tart: I thought this recipe sounded awful before I made it. I was not wrong. It’s a super strong-tasting molasses pie. Not good.
Crumpets: It’s a much more doughy form of a pancake? Not bad, but really it’s just a fancy pancake.
French Fancies: Spongecake with many layers of icing. The trick with this one is trying to get the right consistancies for the icing. It took me a few tries. Really sweet, but in a good way. The cake absorbs the icing (Like a sponge!).
Sticky Toffee Pudding: A “pudding” made with dates? I didn’t think I’d like this one, but it was my favorite. You can’t really taste the dates, and the toffee is so good.
And no Harry Potter movie night would be complete without BUTTERBEER.
The recipe is accurate, but it wasn’t a huge favorite of mine. If you’ve had it and liked it, this is THE recipe.
