The Wizard's Cookbook: Magical Recipes Inspired by Harry Potter, Merlin, The Wizard of Oz, and MoreThe Red Dragon Inn is near the coast, whose high cliff s are home to a vast colony of dragons. All the paladins, rogues, mages, and druids who have tried it are of the same mind: it is best to think twice before picking a quarrel with a dragon in its lair. A look of sympathy passes between them, when one relates how things got a little too close for comfort. That’s why the inn’s jolly cook has created this recipe that is both sweet and fiery. Everyone agrees that in addition to being delicious and comforting, his soup is also ideal for exploring forgotten underground passages or facing a night full of darkness and terror.
