Although The Witch's Cookbook: 50 Wickedly Delicious Witchcraft-Inspired Recipes probably wasn’t written for Halloween, it is a cookbook filled with mouthwatering recipes with names related to witchcraft, and has plenty of ideas for those who like to celebrate that holiday. Fortuna Noir , the author, identifies as a nonbinary witch, and has included recipes celebrating her witchcraft skills and beliefs. This cookbook has recipes that are actually good year round and are very appealing. There are several that are already in my queue.

The recipes are written in the traditional manner and are easy to follow. Whether cooks know anything about witchcraft or not, they will most likely find something that they want to cook. It seems that the actual dishes have very little to do with witchcraft, and the author has simply named them so they sound “witchy.” There are beautiful photographs of almost every recipe, and the dishes range from breakfast dishes, lunches and dinners, appetizers, and desserts. There are only 50 recipes, but they are worth trying. Most of the recipes call for mainstream ingredients available at most grocery stores. A few, like black rice ramen and black rice can be easily found at a favorite Asian grocery store.

Because most of us want to think there is magic in our world, this is a fun cookbook to put on the cook book shelf. It is also a fun cookbook to get ideas for this year’s Halloween BOO-ffet or get together.
