Food charm

Food-related charms are a category of charm related to the magical preparation of food.


Helga Hufflepuff was noted for her skill in food-related charms[1], and many of her recipes were still in use at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1990s. Molly Weasley was also an expert at food-related charms, to the point where her son Ron was under the impression she could create good food from nothing (a magical impossibly, in actuality). Hermione Granger, despite being well versed in a number of spells, was not particularly good at this sort of magic, which led to some difficulties during her, Ron, and Harry's hunt for Horcruxes.
