A Tolkien-Inspired Cookbook

Although Thanksgiving is now behind us, hopefully you've still got food on your mind. If you're like me, then you've always wanted to cook up some dishes similar to those feasted upon in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. While there are many websites which offer creative recipe interpretations – my longtime favourite being this recipe for lembas bread from Council of Elrond – there is not yet an actual Tolkien cookbook available for us hungry fans.

Until now, that is.

With your help, Heath Dill of Massachusetts is hoping to publish (both in print and online) such a cookbook, titled Medium Rare and Back Again. He will be collaborating with his friend Corey Olsen ("the Tolkien Professor"), whose Tolkien Movie Marathon events he regularly caters at, to ensure that these recipes are as close as possible to what you might dine on in Middle-earth.

That being said, raising the necessary funds to research and write a cookbook is not an easy task. And that's why Heath needs your help! Even the smallest donation can go a long way – but if you can't donate, you can still contribute by spreading the word about Heath's campaign on Kickstarter.

Already Heath has raised over $6,000 out of the $10,000 needed to launch this project. There are still 23 days left to spread the word and make a donation, so if you feel so inclined, make a small donation and see this wonderful project come to life.
