Lord of the Rings Scholar to Write Hobbit Cookbook

New, 1 comment

Tolkien scholar Astrid Tuttle Winegar got a book deal with Quirk Books to write A Hobbit's Cookbook: Eleventy-one Sweets, Snacks, and Savories Inspired by Middle-Earth. The "unofficial culinary journey" will not actually be exclusive to hobbits but will also feature foods for "elves, orcs, and even Gollum." Gollum eats? Okay.

Anyway, recreating Hobbit food is not a new thing — Austin's Alamo Drafthouse throws a Lord of the Rings feast every year during which they serve all seven traditional hobbit meals while showing all three movies. And Georgeanne Brennan/Jabberwocky have The Unofficial Hobbit Cookbook coming up as well. Soon you'll be able to make first breakfast, second breakfast, elevensies and all the other meals at home: the book should be out in the Fall of 2012.
