      A friend and former student of mine just published the book described below on Kindle. She started this project about 15 years ago when she was enrolled in a Tolkien class of mine. She's a wonderful cook and I have tried several of these recipes-- all of which have been scrumptious!

      It is currently published only on Kindle, but Kindle has an app that can be used on most tablets and all PCs and cell phones. Also, if you need a last minute holiday gift, you can send a Kindle publication as a gift through Amazon.com with no shipping and it will be there in time. 

      So, to finish the plug, the link is below with only a part of its description!

      Cooking for Halflings & Monsters: 111 Comfy, Cozy Recipes for Fantasy-Loving Souls [Kindle Edition]
      by Astrid Tuttle Winegar and illustrated by Geneva Harstine

      In Cooking for Halflings and Monsters: 111 Comfy, Cozy Recipes for Fantasy-Loving Souls, Tolkien scholar Astrid Tuttle Winegar has created 111 original recipes to inspire you. Lovingly illustrated and written with dry humor throughout, this charming cookbook is sure to delight you and your family, friends, and whoever else is a lucky part of your community. So crack open a beer, rustle up some "Gündürnüb's Grüb," and come along on this epic culinary journey. Your quest for delicious recipes is complete! 

      This cookbook consists of eight chapters, each imagining a restaurant (inn, cafe, or bistro) which caters to particular archetypal characters in the fantasy genre. But don't worry—you simply need to love comfort food to enjoy all the recipes within! 

      "Halfling Hideaway" is the perfect cozy spot for characters small of stature, yet big of heart. Here, you can enjoy Stout & Sturdy Chicken & Dumplings, Six of One Half a Dozen Soup, and Nutty Honey Bars. 

      "The Inn of the Doughty Hero" provides hearty food for the hero on the move. This is the place to bring your freshly acquired game and any sort of fruits or vegetables you've managed to forage during your journeys in the wild. Beery Beef Stew, Cress Composition, and Healing Chocolate Chai will fortify you for your next outing. For now, stay and eat—and you might consider washing your hair and clothes for a change... 

      "Council Catering" helps you develop a sophisticated menu to help convince your heroes to risk their lives fulfilling dangerous quests. Order your impressive Celebration Cake here.
