Food and Drink


"The dishes in front of them filled with food as usual. The house-elves in the kitchen seemed to have pulled out all the stops; there was a greater variety of dishes in front of them than Harry had ever seen, including several that were definitely foreign.

'What's that?' said Ron, pointing at a large dish of some sort of shellfish stew that stood beside a large steak-and-kidney pudding.

'Bouillabaisse,' said Hermione.

'Bless you,' said Ron.

'It's French,' said Hermione. 'I had it on holiday, summer before last, it's very nice.'

'I'll take your word for it,' said Ron, helping himself to black pudding. " - Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger (GF16)

"At that moment, a voice said, 'Excuse me, are you wanting ze bouillabaisse?'

It was the girl from Beauxbatons who had laughed during Dumbledore's speech." - Fleur Delacour (GF16)

A traditional french fish stew, served when Beauxbatons visit Hogwarts for the Triwizard Tournament. (GF)



The French and English form bouillabaisse comes from the Provençal Occitan word bolhabaissa, a compound that consists of the two verbs bolhir and abaissar.
