A periodic recipe sharing thread held on TORn's Message Boards


Middle-earth Recipes, a recipe-sharing thread, ran on a roughly monthly basis from October 2008 to September 2009. The recipes being shared each month would be inspired by a different Middle-earth location that followed the route of the Fellowship. In each thread, the next month's location was posted so people could be thinking ahead about recipes suitable for that location. 1


The idea was conceived by ringbearer9, simplyaven, Jazmine, somuchmore, and SirDennisC in a thread ringbearer9 had posted asking for 'Shire Recipes' and they shared in leading the discussions. 2

In January 2009, the idea of publishing the recipes was broached and contributors were asked to indicate whether they were agreeable to having their recipe included in such a publication. People were also asked to credit their recipes if they were taken from a cookbook or website. 3
