There are so many wonderful aspects within the Harry Potter universe -- duh, there's magic! -- but one of the most satisfying things is the food.

Throughout the novels, author J.K. Rowling fabricates her fair share of magical creatures as well as delectable, wizardy food. Though we can't naturally bring about any fantastic beasts, with a little imagination and some flour, sparks can fly in the kitchen.

When planning the latest expansion to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Orlando, Senior Vice President of Revenue Operations at Universal Orlando Ric Florell and Executive Chef Jayson worked closely together to conjure dishes that were both authentic to wizards and delicious for muggles.
