Time to delve in and explore the food mentioned in the second book of the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
Pudding with whipped cream and sugared violets: There are many descriptions for pudding, but from what we can gather, this type of pudding would be a dessert made of flour, but could be baked, boiled or steamed (Think the pudding in A Christmas Carol). If you think otherwise, let me know!
Loin of roast pork: The British are known for their roasts, and who we can thank for the ‘Sunday roast’. A pork loin is the meat from the top of the rib cage.
Bread slices and lump of cheese
canned soup (with vegetables in): The pitiful dinner Aunt Petunia gives to Harry, who shares with Hedwig.
marmalade: A fruit preserve usually spread on toast, made from the juice and peel of citrus fruit. Orange marmalade is quite common.
strawberry and peanut butter ice cream: A delicious ice cream that comes from Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlour in Diagon Alley.
treacle pudding: A steamed sponge cake with treacle cooked on top (you may also know treacle as molasses), and served with hot custard.
pumpkin juice: Looks like I’m giving you a sneak peek of a recipe to come! In Universal’s Island of Adventure, pumpkin juice tastes of warm apple pie.
custard tart: A sweet pastry tart filled with custard then baked.
chicken and ham sandwiches
kippers: Kippers are herring that have been cut head to tail so they lay butterfly style, and are salted or pickled, then cold smoked. Certainly not for the faint of heart!
eggs and bacon
treacle fudge: Fudge made from treacle (molasses)
shepherd’s pie: A meat pie baked with a crust of fluffy mashed potato.
