Middle-Earth Menu: “Oin’s Chicken Walnut Puffs” by Astrid Tuttle Winegar In The Hobbit, Oin wears a brown hood and does not play an instrument. After the Battle of Five Armies, however, he apparently accompanied Balin to Moria. Unfortunately for Oin, he then became a victim of the dreaded Watcher in the Water.

Middle-Earth Menu: “Dori’s Salmon Tartlets”

“Dori’s Salmon Tartlets” by Astrid Tuttle Winegar And now we will continue with the savory dishes served at Bilbo’s grand, but down-to-earth, tea party for his dwarf friends. Dori wore a purple hood and played the flute. Perhaps he performed in a trio with Bifur and Bofur (both of whom wore yellow hoods, incidentally), who both played clarinets. Dori is ...

Middle-Earth Menu: “Nori’s Nutmeggers”

“Nori’s Nutmeggers” by Astrid Tuttle Winegar The purple-hooded Nori is another one of those expendable dwarves. Robert Foster’s Complete Guide to Middle-earth sums him up as a member of the House of Durin and a member of Thorin and Company. That’s it. He apparently plays the flute. I believe he does not have any lines, but you can correct me ...

Middle-Earth Menu: Ori’s Cinnamon Sticks

You might remember that Balin was featured in my last post. Balin was a kind dwarf who became rather friendly with Bilbo Baggins. He wore a scarlet hood and played a large viol. Relatively long-lived, he knew both Thrain and Thorin; eventually he settled in Khazad-dum where he became king. Unfortunately, he was killed by Orcs there—the Fellowship sees his ...

Tolkien Cooking: New Fangled Mince Pie

Remember when the Dwarves invade Bilbo Baggins’cozy home and demand all sorts of food-stuffs from his probably-too-full pantries? Bofur asks specifically for some mince pie with cheese. Most traditional mince pies are small and utilize apples and LOTS of booze. I decided to update the concept and came up with this extremely rich and intense version of a mince pie ...

"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 ...
