The latest book from author and Witchcraft and Shamanism expert, Danaan Elderhill, The Magic Book of Cookery is all about planning and executing the perfect pagan dinner party. The book contains simple recipes and accompanying rituals that call upon – or rather, invite to dinner – various pagan entities responsible for physical and emotional wellbeing. The recipes and rituals in the book are based on those of the Friends of Euphrosyne, a witch coven that allegedly existed in the 17th century and had to invent new ways to practice magic without being detected. In doing so, they discovered that magic is best practiced in the spirit of joy, fun, and friendship.
However The Magic Book of Cookery contains more than just recipes. It also describes the secret gatherings and meetings of the coven, while sharing rituals, spells, and yes, delicious recipes, intended to make culinary gatherings spectacles of joy, camaraderie, and friendship. The book includes hand-made watercolor illustrations of deities and symbols, said to have been revered by ancient pagans, as well as translations of prayers said to summon and release each spiritual entity.
“There’s a good chance pagans will love The Magic Book of Cookery, but they’re not the only ones in for a culinary treat. The Magic Book of Cookery not only convinces readers that food is scrumptious and powerful, but its otherworldly abundance of mystical incantations and pagan rituals, as well as its ethereal design, add an extra dash of interest to this unique concoction.”
“I enjoyed the illustrations in the book. They’re gentle atmospheric watercolours in muted
colours, which really add to the feel of the book.” – Sue Magee, TheBookbag.co.uk
