If you fancy tucking into a steaming hot bowl of Princess & the Pea Soup, curling up by the fire with a cup of tea and a slab of Hansel & Gretel's House Gingerbread or tickling your taste-buds with a dollop of Tinkerbell's Trifle, then Fairytale Food is for you ...
... Once upon a time, a young(-ish) maiden decided she was fed up with cooking the same old beans on toast and pasta bakes every night; she longed for some magic in her cooking. So she left her cosy cottage (flat in West London), pen and paper in hand and set off to find inspiration in the land of fairytales. For months and months she toiled visiting our best-loved characters; some were wonderfully sweet and generous, others were a bit grumpy and a little scary, but they all gave her ideas, tips and the confidence to create her very own delicious recipes.
Put a bit of magic into your cooking with these recipes inspired by some of our most-loved fairytales.

A charming book with lovely recipes - Lorraine Pascale
We've been checking out some fab baking and cookery books this month and one that's caught our eye is the upcoming Fairytale Food by Lucie Cash. If you love to cook and like the idea of a quirky recipe book, then read on! - Trashionista
Fairytale Food is a real delight… There are lovely illustrations throughout the book, which will have the grandchildren fascinated - Choice
Are you looking for a gift for someone who enjoys cooking and who has an interest in fairy tales? If so, this book could well be your perfect answer. It has over sixty recipes - none of them at all complex - and they're all associated with favourite fairy tales.... there are lavish illustrations by Yelena Bryksenkova of scenes from the tales and I didn't find a double page spread which didn't have some entertaining embellishment. It's also a bonus that there's a gentle humour in the illustrations... it could bring a smile (and something tasty to eat) to your lips - or those of someone who would love this as a present - Bookbag
Recipes such as Princess and the Pea Soup should get your little ones excited for dinner - Sunday Times
Bring new magic to mealtimes… Recipes from Fairytale Food by Lucie Cash (think Three Little Pigs in Blankets and Snow Queen Cookies) are all you need to hold you own sleepover - Marie Claire
Fairytale Food is a cookbook with a difference. Each chapter is inspired by a different fairytale and the book is guaranteed to captivate old and young alike. And it is beautifully illustrated by Yelena Bryksenkova… There are lots of yummy treats to choose from - Sun
What a wonderful idea! Lucie Cash's recipe book will strike deep into the hearts of budding princesses (and grown ups who can't resist the lure of folktales). Inspired by classic fairytales, Cash creates recipes such as The Princess & The Pea Soup and Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs Salad which are, in their own right, delicious and perfectly achievable quests for small chefs. A magical addition to any bookcase - Easy Living
Bored with eating the same old thing every day? Rediscover the magic of cooking with this gorgeously illustrated tome, featuring such culinary delights as Princess and the Pea Soup, a Hansel and Gretel gingerbread house, “good fairy” cakes and a killer “goblin granita” cocktail. To the kitchen, Cinderella! - InStyle magazine
I was enchanted... The name itself made me happy as I opened up the cover. Once the binding was creased, the pages within held even more wonders... This will be such a fun cookbook to use in the future with children. I can just imagine creating tea-time treats as we dress up according to the menu of the day! - tasteofwonderland
it’s jam packed with really good recipes, all based around traditional fairy tales (and many involving edible glitter!). As well as wanting to spend hours in the kitchen creating magical food, I instantly fell in love with the illustrations by Yelena Bryksenkova and I got even more excited to see you could buy postcard versions - thelinencat
Fairytale Food is the most beautifully illustrated cookbook. It is illustrated to feel like a traditional fairytale book, but instead of stories you find recipes... It would be great to make or bake some of these recipe with your children. Great for a rainy-stuck-at-home day. Start by reading the fairytale, draw some pictures of the characters, then make or bake a dish. Finish the day by taking about the fun you had and make sure to read the story again at bedtime. - Baby.co.uk
