Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
In this debut, Elderhill delivers a detailed guide to planning and performing the perfect pagan dinner party. Looking for a way to bring good health and happiness into a home, or find a soul mate, or simply welcome the spirit of new beginnings? According to Elderhill's offbeat cookbook, readers can do it all simply by making dinner. The author explains simple recipes and rituals that call upon--or rather, invite to dinner--various pagan entities responsible for physical and emotional well-being. According to the book's introduction, the Friends of Euphrosyne, a secret society that worshipped the nominal Greek goddess, continued to observe paganism despite the European witch hunts. The coven practiced and recorded their rites until the 17th century, when they mysteriously disappeared--but not before disseminating their book of wisdom. This modern version of the Friends' book aims to bring its old rituals back into practice. Elderhill includes hand-drawn 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. Readers will also need to compile several items most likely not stocked by local supermarkets or drugstores: crystals, peacock feathers (and meat), horse-tail hair, and, preferably, well water. However, the rest of the preparations are easy--and require relatively common household items. There are also tips for storing good "energy" in water and leftovers. A cookbook that aims to bring positivity and delicious food into readers' homes--and potentially a pagan deity or two.
