Tolkien Cooking with Beorn: Little Bunny’s Bread and Honey

by Astrid Tuttle Winegar After the Troll encounter and a brief encounter with some elves, Bilbo, his companions, and their pack-ponies end up captured by goblins. Goblins apparently “eat horses and ponies and donkeys (and other much more dreadful things).” Now, I do have many delicious goblin/orc recipes, which I will post eventually. Fortunately for you, none of my Orc ...

The Controversial Tauriel: Peter Jackson’s Creation in The Hobbit Films

The Controversial Tauriel: Peter Jackson’s Film Addition to The Hobbit Canon by Astrid Tuttle Winegar Tauriel. Like her? Love her? Loathe her? Years ago when casting for the Hobbit films was first announced, my initial thought was “Who the hell is that?” I went to my various indices and guides, and discovered that I was right—this character didn’t exist in ...

Tolkien Cooking: Gandalf’s Cold Chicken and Pickles

Tolkien Cooking: Gandalf’s Cold Chicken and Pickles by Astrid Tuttle Winegar   I guess (mostly) all of us have a sweet spot for Gandalf in our hearts. He’s wry and witty; magical and majestic—the archetypal wise old man. If you had to hang out with such a person in real life, however, he might be kind of annoying. He’s certainly ...

Tolkien Cooking: Mr. Bungo Baggins’ Over the Hill and Across the Water Salad

“Mr. Bungo Baggins’s Over the Hill and Across the Water Salad” by Astrid Tuttle Winegar As promised, here is a healthy salad for Bombur. A nice short post this time, with relatively few ingredients—perfect for summertime! I’m imagining that Bilbo’s father liked to dabble in gardening and specialized in salad creations, so I’m naming this for him. Bungo built Bag-End ...

"Bombur's Pork-Pie"

“Bombur’s Pork-Pie” by Astrid Tuttle Winegar Poor Bombur. All he gets is abuse for his physical condition, even from LOTR characters such as Boromir who never interacted with him in Middle-earth. It’s a shame. I suppose I would say he is one of my favorite dwarves merely because of his appetite and his oh-so-apparent love for food and drink. He ...

"Bag-End Biscuits": A Hobbit’s Recipe

“Bag-End Biscuits”: A Hobbit’s Recipe by Astrid Tuttle Winegar I’m going to picture one of our favorite hobbits, Mr. Bilbo Baggins, reading his “morning letters.” He’s about to enjoy his day (his less noisy and more green day) when this incredibly annoying wizard intrudes, whose only mission seems to be destroying Bilbo’s cozy, complacent world. After this encounter, I imagine ...

Cheddar Sage Scones: Fantasy Treat Idea for Mother's Day

Cheddar Sage Scones: Fantasy Treat Idea for Mother’s Day by Astrid Tuttle Winegar Some of the Dwarves demolish Bilbo’s beautiful round seed-cakes (see my previous post) and are now “starting on a round of buttered scones.” The furious and “altogether bewildered and bewuthered” Bilbo now takes requests from all the Dwarves and Gandalf, who, Bilbo suspects, “Seems to know as ...

Hobbit Baking: "Beautiful Round Seed-Cake"

“Beautiful Round Seed-Cake” by Astrid Tuttle Winegar “Rifflo,” a.k.a. Mr. Steve Fitch, asked me (very nicely) to contribute the occasional recipe to Legendarium. So I would like to follow the story of The Hobbit first, then eventually get around to The Lord of the Rings. I may take detours to Narnia, Westeros, or maybe Hogwarts; I may even dally in ...
