About this event


Please join Catland & co-owner Melissa Madara in celebrating Melissa’s first publication, The Witch’s Feast : A Kitchen Grimoire; a magical cookbook celebrating the history & praxis of culinary magic, from the most ancient societies to today. Come meet the author, have your book signed, and sample a selection of delicious treats from Melissa’s own kitchen, featuring recipes from the book & beyond!

About The Witch's Feast:

"The Witch’s Feast considers the feast table as a meeting place between family and friends, between humans and gods. This decadent collection of enchanting dishes is an indispensable companion to kitchen witchcraft, revealing the storied history and seductive art of magical cooking. With witch, herbalist and chef Melissa Jayne Madara as your guide, explore five facets of the occult through food: traditional recipes, the wheel of the zodiac, devotional meals to the planets, seasonal feasts to celebrate solstices and equinoxes, and practical spellwork. Recreate a pagan feast of lamb roasted with milk and honey, with cheesecake baked in fig leaves for dessert. Celebrate a Gemini birthday with herbed fondue, followed by lemongrass pavlova. Align with the poetic pleasures of Venus with edible flower dumplings, or commune with Saturn over blackberry pulled pork sandwiches. Enjoy the vibrancy of the spring equinox with herb and allium quiche with a potato crust, radish salad with cherry blossom vinaigrette and jasmine tea shortbread. Share an evening of storytelling over mugwort and catnip divination tea, or embody an otherworldly spirit with ritual bread masks. Packed with ancient knowledge, practical advice and witchcraft expertise, this book will help you develop your craft through culinary creativity. Gather, share, and rediscover the most fundamental of human rituals: the divine indulgence of the senses and the soul."

Vegan & vegetarian options will be featured on the bake sale menu. This event will take place in Catland’s black box event space, with street access to the right of our 987 Flushing Avenue entrance.
