How to Put Together a Hobbit Menu

There is only one way to get ready for the premiere of The Hobbit this weekend: Host a marathon viewing session of The Lord of the Rings. And in order to sustain the energy required for the 11+ hour viewing party (extended edition, of course), it’s essential to embrace the day and Eat Like a Hobbit. Hobbits prefer six meals a day, seven if they can get it, and  I say, why not? Just be sure if your guest list is at 13 that you find a 14th guest.

Now let’s get started:

Breakfast: Scones and Jam

The Unexpected Party at the beginning of The Hobbit is rich with food ideas: “A big jug of coffee had just been set in the hearth, the seed-cakes were gone, and the dwarves were starting on a round of buttered scones.”

There’s varying opinions on how to make seed-cakes, but scones are easy enough. Serve Alton Brown’s scone recipe with raspberry jam for another nod to the book. Set out meats and cheeses as well for continued munching throughout the day.

Get the Recipe: Scones

Second Breakfast: Grilled Strawberry Shortcake With Lemon Cream

When Pippin and Merry begin to grumble about the chances of Aragorn knowing about second breakfast is exactly the time to serve it. Go for Kelsey’s Grilled Strawberry Shortcake and hopefully you’ll remember the taste of strawberries come the third movie.

Elevenses: Lembas Bread

As your journey continues into The Two Towers, I advise pausing to consume homemade Lembas bread. A quick Google search for “lembas bread recipe” turns up several options, but I recommend our sister site Food.com’s lembas bread recipe.

Luncheon: Fish and Chips

Though Gollum wouldn’t approve, a serving of “lovely big golden chips with a nice piece of fried fish” should suit everyone’s lunchtime needs just fine.

Afternoon Tea: Honey Cakes

Any fan of The Hobbit will remember Beorn, the shape-shifter who could turn into a large black bear. It should come as no surprise, then, that the food he provided Bilbo, Gandalf and the dwarves involved honey. What better way to start the movie fest than with Honey Cakes? As they are almost as filling as Lembas, the meal should get you through to supper. I recommend also serving coffee or mimosas at this point, as it’s said that honey cakes can make one thirsty.

Dinner/Supper: Pork Pies

It’s important to remember what this viewing party is about, so let’s end the meal with another throwback to the The Hobbit. During the Unexpected Party, the dwarf Bombur calls for pork pie. Serve with a salad, for balanced eating.

What else would you serve at your Hobbit/Lord of the Rings party?

An alternate (though significantly less authentic) game plan  would be a quick trip to Denny’s for their Hobbit-themed menu.
