If you have ever wanted to see what an Elevenses meal would be like, this recipe book is for you. Dive in and prepare your po-ta-toes like Middle Earthers would, whether boiled, mashed, or stuck in a stew.

Find something delicious to eat in Recipes from the World of Tolkien, whether for breakfast, second breakfast, elevenses, luncheon, dinner, supper, or afternoon tea. What food lover could resist a dish from a universe with seven meals a day? As a lover of both breakfast and potatoes, I myself am drawn towards the Traveller’s all-in-one Breakfast in a Pan, but there’s something in there for every Tolkienite to enjoy.

Perfect for a LOTR-themed party, or just for everyday if you're a big Tolkien lover!
