Recipes Inspired by Beauty and the Beast
Celebrate this tale as old as time with dishes inspired by the fairy tale's French country setting, its enchanted castle and all your favorite characters. These recipes invite you to be our guest for a truly magical Beauty and the Beast party.
These sweet and simple treats represent the enchanted rose from the Beast’s castle, which counts down the time left for the Beast to find true love. Pile them under a glass cloche to add an extra wink to the movie.
Inspired by wise Mrs. Potts and her peppy son, Chip, these tender cookies are the perfect partner to a spot of tea.
We can’t help but think Belle would grab a crusty loaf of this fresh-baked bread to enjoy while paging through her favorite book in the square of her little country village.
This bright herbal tea, served up by Mrs. Potts, no doubt, is calming enough to soothe even the Beast’s hottest of temper tantrums.
Loaded with hearty potatoes, bacon and-of course-topped with plenty of eggs, this is the way we think Gaston starts every very-manly day.
At tea time or brunch, pay homage to the Beast’s enchanted rose with this unique and lovely honey made with real rose petals.
The castle servants welcome Belle with a huge dinner spread, including a bounty of pies and cakes decorated to impress. This pretty white cake is perfect for any celebration, and even includes a wink to the enchanted rose with the strawberry-mint adornment on top.
This extra cozy soup with a bubbling, cheesy top is the perfect way to warm up after a playful snowball fight in the castle’s courtyard.
At the end of the song “Be Our Guest”‘ champagne bottles pop, shooting bubbles across the dining room as Belle is welcomed to the castle. These fun champagne gelatin treats might make for a little easier cleanup after the celebration.
Crepes are a classic French dish that are like very thin, delicate pancakes. We wouldn’t be surprised to see them piled high and filled with bright strawberry and lemon flavor at one of Belle and the Beast’s breakfasts.
While singing “Be Our Guest,” Lumiere nudges Belle to “Try the gray stuff, it’s delicious!” And while this chocolaty dessert isn’t quite gray, we’re sure it’s just as good as the mousse-like treat offered on his tray.
The baker in Belle’s village may have his own version of this beautiful French pastry, but we’re willing to bet this buttery homemade version is just as delicious.
