If you, like me, have someone in your life who loves the works of J.R.R. Tolkien then you are going to want to check out this new cookbook. Recipes from the World of Tolkien is a wonderful book that allows you to immerse yourself in Tolkien’s legendary fantasy world with recipes that are inspired by its places and characters.
From breakfast to second breakfast and even elevenses there is sure to be something to appeal to everyone’s tastes, whether that be for an elf or an orc! You won’t ever have to wonder what Lembas Bread or Beorn’s Honey Cakes tastes like, you can now make them yourself, along with The Prancing Pony’s Potato and Garlic Soup and The Green Dragon’s Mushroom and Leek Pie.
The book includes beautiful illustrations and artwork as well as short explanations of the role that food plays in Tolkien’s books. Recipes from the World of Tolkien by Robert Tuesley Anderson includes over 75 recipes and because it will take you on a journey through Middle-Earth it would make a welcome addition to any Tolkien fan’s bookshelf.
Recipes from the World of Tolkien is available from book stores and online retailers for a recommended retail price of R445.
