Greetings, readers! I am delighted to announce a very special contest. Friends of the blog over at Second Breakfast have announced the release of cookbook that is near and dear to this bear’s heart. The book is called Recipes from a Halfling’s Pantry (lots of these) by Amalia and Amy Young Miller. After having the privilege of an advanced reading, I can personally attest to the many delicious treasures to be found within its pages.
I have a free copy of this ebook available to one lucky reader. This contest is simple, leave a comment about your favorite food or food-related incident from any of Tolkien’s works. No description or narrative is needed, even if you just want to cite the book and sentence in question, that is fine. Since this is an ebook, there is no added cost for delivery, so I definitely encourage all of my international readers to participate.
The contest will run for the week, with a deadline for submissions at midnight on Friday, February 20th. For anyone who can’t wait to get their hands on these delicious recipes, the book is available for purchase immediately. As a special bonus, readers can purchase the ebook until Friday on a pay-what-you-want basis. After Friday it will be available at a fixed price so take heed and do not ignore that grumble in your tummy. This book truly is a labor of love, and one that any fan of Tolkien and food can deeply appreciate. I encourage all who enjoy good Tolkien-themed food to support a friend and purchase your own copy. Good luck, and may all of your Middle-earth adventures, culinary and otherwise, be filled with joy.
