I was browsing through my local bookstore recently and I saw this book in the discounted section. It being of a fairy nature I of course picked it up.
It’s a fairy- themed cookbook. It has a brief introduction with a few fairy bios and some fairy decorating ideas before getting into some creatively constructed and displayed items of food that actually look like they’re be quite good to eat. Before each section of recipes begin there is a cool little 2 page spread with 4 or 5 food facts or very quick recipes with a fairytale related name. The sections are; ‘potions’- drinks, ‘little mouthfuls’- appetizers, ‘feeding the wolf’- small main courses. ‘cheesy treats’- dairy dishes, and ‘sweet delights’- dessert. The dishes themselves call for lesser used ingredients in an imaginative way. It’s really a fantastic, fun little book if you can manage to get your hands on it. It’s a tiny 157 page book that is about the size of my hand.
The difficulty might be actually getting a copy of this though. I managed to stumble across this in english, but it’s apparently a French book originally. So unless you speak French you may have issues in getting a copy.
Here is the french amazon’s page on it http://www.amazon.fr/cuisine-fées-comment-merveilles-magicienne/dp/2845672365
and there is a link to the google- translated version here
But it’s on amazon.com in English, though it looks as if it’s currently unavailable. http://www.amazon.com/Fairytale-Create-Wonders-Without-Magician/dp/B0016CCMFC/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1292394459&sr=1-1
