Kickstarter to Fund Middle-Earth Cookbook

cgpoirier writes "We all know hobbits love their breakfast. And their second breakfast. And elevenses. And lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, and supper. Shire grub seems largely inspired by traditional British items like scones and jam, sausages, mushrooms, whipped cream and berries, seed cakes, bread, cheese, fruits, and of course ale — food that Tolkien himself loved to eat.

Then there’s more esoteric fare from other corners of Tolkien’s world, like lembas, an elvish “waybread” much like cowboy hardtack. A few nibbles of lembas and an elf, dwarf or Númenórean could be sustained for days on the tough road to his or her next quest.

But how, exactly, might you make all that Middle-earth food here on Regular-earth?

A fellow in Arlington, Massachusetts, is eager to find out. He has launched a Kickstarter campaign to answer such questions as: What ingredients went into Bilbo’s pork pies? What did Sam’s coney stew contain? (Hint: rabbits.) And, and I quote from the Kickstarter website, “If Balrogs had wings, what would they taste like?”"
