Have you ever dreamed of what Bilbo’s pork pies actually taste like? Does Sam’s coney stew sound wonderful? Do you share Gollum’s affection for sushi-grade fish? If Balrogs had wings, what would they taste like?
If you, like me, have ever spent long afternoons wondering about these important questions, this is the project for you. With the help of my friend, Corey Olsen (also known as the Tolkien Professor, and author of the recently-released book “Exploring J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit”“), I aim to write a 30-recipe book, which I will release in both print and free online versions, with recipes, pictures, cooking tips and tricks, and witty commentary from both Corey and myself on where these recipes originate from in Tolkien’s works. The online version will be available for anyone, anywhere – not just my backers but free for anyone to use!
. . . .
These recipes will cover different parts of Tolkien’s world – light and delicate Elvish recipes like lembas bread, stout roasted Dwarven fare, hearty Hobbit pies and stews, as well as a few oddball recipes like Balrog Wings.
