Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone at Food 'n Flix
{I am hosting for August! Join Me!}

I am happy to announce I will be hosting the featured movie at Food 'n Flix for August.  

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is the featured film and from watching this many times previously, I remember quite a bit of food offerings.

 The Sorcerer's Stone is probably my favorite in the movie series although Prisoner from Azkaban is a close second.  The first movie shows the wonder of Harry's discovery when told he is a wizard.  He learns he isn't a second class citizen as he's been treated by Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon. ( Don't get me started on that spoiled brat Dudley), he learns about his parents and their love for him and he finds kindred souls at Hogwarts.  He experiences love and friendship. Yeah, the first movie is well done and follows the book very well.

Here is  slight preview in case you are scratching your head and thinking - Harry Potter and food?

“He had never seen so many thing he liked to eat on one table: roast beef, roast chicken, pork chops and lamb chops, sausages, bacon and steak, boiled potatoes, roast potatoes, fries, Yorkshire pudding, peas, carrots, gravy, ketchup, and for some strange reason, peppermint humbugs.” 

 “Blocks of ice cream in every flavour you could think of, apple pies, treacle tarts, chocolate eclairs and jam doughnuts, trifle, strawberries, Jell-O, rice pudding—“ -food from their first feast at Hogwarts.

There is undoubtably more so you'll have plenty of inspiration if you'd like to join the party.

 I've been a Potterhead since we first started reading the books and watching the excellent movies.  

There is ample time to join in if you are interested in this virtual movie party.

  1. I've always liked those feasts! I wrote a post about food in the Harry Potter books a long time ago, but not much about the movies:

    1. Mae, wevoived both the books and movies but I think the director of the first two movies was the best of them all. Let me check out your Potter post now. There is indeed much food in the series.

  3. It's been a very long time since I've joined a Food N' Flix. I've already seen this movie but enjoyed it so I don't mind re-watching it. I plan on linking up here and at F&F.
