Real-Life Recipes from A HOUSE DIVIDED Series

With each volume of A House Divided, a captivating and creative fantasy graphic novel series, Haiko Hörnig and Marius Pawlitza have invited readers to make some creations of their own.

The books follow Henrietta Achilles, a big-hearted orphan who inherits the sizable and magical estate of her uncle, a notorious wizard. While Henrietta finds all sorts of motley creatures camped out inside the house, some of Henrietta’s most memorable encounters involve food and drink, from an early squabble over a hot quiche onward. Fittingly, each volume of the series includes a recipe as well, giving readers the steps to fictional culinary concoctions such as Swain’s Quiche, Moira’s Magical Dragon Blood Punch, and Henrietta’s Farewell Cake. When you collect the entire series you can make a complete meal using these recipes.
