A few days after the news broke that there will be a new Harry Potter book, Harry Potter is still all over the internet. Fans now know that in summer this year there will be a stage production – ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’, which is set 19 years after the last book. Here’s an official statement about it:
“It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.”
In response to fans who pleaded that a book version be released as well – hey not everyone has the broomsticks to fly to Britain for the play – it was then announced that on July 31st at midnight a script of the play would also be released.
A Trip To Harry Potter Land Through Food
We’ve already shared a recipe for the legendary Butter beer, which you can use to raise a toast to the news and for a Knickerbocker Glory, which was one of the first foods to make an appearance in the series.
Now, we’re super excited to share a recipe for a Hogwarts Express classic; Pumpkin Pasties. You may remember we’re first introduced to Cho Chang , one of Harry’s love interests when she asks for two pumpkin pasties and they continue to crop up in passing whenever the Hogwarts’ kids are travelling.
These pasties can be made with fresh or canned pumpkin.
