V is for Victor and a Visit to the Dining Room at the P.A.W.S. Institute of Londinium


“Welcome, welcome! Come sit down. Take a seat. The pea soup will be ready shortly. And it’s truly scrumptious today.

I  am Victor and I am both your chef and your host here in the Dining Room at the P.A.W.S. Institute of Londinium. As you can see I am a rather small pig, but I have trained in the Culinary Magical Institute of P.A.W.S. in Paris and  I can produce a veritable banquet.

So start with the pea soup, stay for the shepherd’s pie, and make sure you leave enough room for pudding. Today’s selection is Headmaster Sprocket’s favorite, rhubarb crumble and custard.”

H is for Hugo Hogsworth


“Greetings I’m Hugo Hogsworth, the chef at the P.A.W.S. Institute of the Midwest. From since I was small I’ve adored cooking and food of course. I adore food too! My favorite things  to cook are pies – all sorts of pies, both sweet and savory.

I was given my shapeshifter charm – a small silver hog – by my father on the night before he passed away. It was he who also advised me to enroll in the  P.A.W.S. Institute for Culinary Magic just outside of Paris. There I learned to cook and discovered that my hog form gave me a special skill. I can find the most delectable truffles.

While I’m cooking I enjoying singing Gilbert and Sullivan and have been told that have a very pleasant voice.

Please come and visit me in the kitchen and dining room at P.A.W.S. I guarantee there will always be something delectable on the menu.”
