Harry Potter loves British food which is easy to see in these 30 of his favourite recipes. Through their time at Hogwarts, Harry Potter and his pals have regularly eaten some of the classics of British foods, the good and the no-so-good - tripe, yuk.
Harry Potter's school food involves pies, puddings, tarts and cakes to fuel all those adventures and a tough game of Quidditch. Hearty British breakfasts after midnight escapades and delightful afternoon teas with Hagrid.
Though rich in classic... British food, Harry Potter's food does lack fish, vegetables and fruit but I don't think they mind so much with all the treats on offer.

The perfect tart for the sweet toothed at Hogwarts is a sweet, sticky Treacle Tart filled with golden syrup and black treacle- no wonder that Harry and his pals love it so much.
But this isn't the only pudding they love.
Spotted Dick Pudding, an apple pie or a big bowl of Bread and Butter Pudding, a wobbly Jelly, or a Trifle are all puddings eaten frequently and with relish.

All the wizardry, witchcraft and Quidditch at Hogwarts uses a lot of energy, so the food needs to be hearty and solid to fill them up, so pies, puddings and pasties are popular.
A Steak and Kidney Pudding, a big, fat Cornish Pasty or a huge steaming bowl of Shepherd's Pie will always do the trick.Continue to 5 of 8 below.

In British food, the main meal of the week and the same at Hogwarts is a Sunday roast. What better way to celebrate Sunday and a day from school with a full Sunday roast of Roast Beef and Yorkshire Puddings, crisp roast potatoes, and it would seem Harry and his friends even like Brussels Sprouts.

Whether the pupils at Hogwarts get to go home or stay at school for Christmas, there's one thing they will all share, a traditional British Christmas lunch; Roast Turkey, Brussels Sprouts, Bread Sauce and Roast Potatoes followed of course, by a flaming Christmas pudding.

Yukky Food at Hogwarts
It's not all yummy cakes and pies at Hogwarts. Occasionally the menu contains foods that Harry and friends are not quite so keen on. Tripe which is the lining of a cows stomach. Some people love it?
Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington may have thought offering maggoty Haggis to guests at his party, but it really is better eaten without the maggots.
