MOVIE BITES – QUIDDITCH PLAYER’S PIE

MOVIE BITES – QUIDDITCH PLAYER’S PIE
Musical pairing – The Quidditch Match by John Williams I am completely in love with the world of Harry Potter. I wear my Gryffindor scarf with pride. I pick up sticks when I’m on walks with my husband just to wave them in the air at him and say “Expelliarmus!” When we visited The Wizarding World of Harry Potter last October, I literally went running through the park like some sort of crazed madwoman just to get to the ride “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.” If there was an Olympic record for sprinting toward a theme park ride, I would be polishing the gold right now. So when I went search for Harry Potter-based recipes, I was excited to find so many. Quidditch Pie is one of the many culinary delights that I imagine Molly Weasley bakes in her charming cottage kitchen amidst all of her knitted potholders and dark wooden furniture. She uses magic. Anyone can be a great cook if they can wave a wand at their ingredients. The icing bags I was using were super thin.
