Found another great resource on medieval cooking, and thought it made sense to link to it here, so anyone looking for such info could find it in this thread.

Gode Cookery, with info on using trenchers, Cooking Oils, Breakfast (which was mostly bread, wine, and/or fish!), and a lot more info that I haven't even located.


Edited to add yet another resource on historical/reenactment cooking:Medieval Cookery. This one has recipes sorted by name, as well as country of origin, ease of cooking, and vegetarian/vegan cooking.

Justin Rhodes visited this awesome permaculture farm, Forest Gully Farms, and it has not only a really cool circular garden, complete with kiwi/grape arbors, and a forest to forage in that is complete with stream and waterfall, but it also has hobbit homes you can stay in!!! I'm in love!

There are few better resources than the Baroness' (Scraeling Althing: Ottawa, Ontario) excellent Big Buttes Book: Annotated Dyets Dry Dinner (1599), by Henry Buttes, with Elizabethan Recipes

Andrew Tuttle wrote:Im currently attending Alderleaf Wilderness college in Monroe WA.  Part of the curriculum is Permaculture.  For our design project my group has been given the task of creating a "Larpers paradise" permaculture farm.  I am currently compiling a list of foods eaten by Elves, Dwarves, and Orcs to be incorporated into our design. Im not a huge Tolkien buff and finding info online about this topic has been difficult. No this is not a joke.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Elves would be mostly vegetarian.  Every elegant presentation, but extremely light on meats.  I remember the Dwarves complaining about the lack n the books and movies.

Dwarves seemed to eat everything except the kitchen sink.  Hobbits love comfort, including food, sausages, hams, cheeses, fresh baked goods come to mind, but again everything expect the kitchen sink and twice as often.  Good old fashioned American farm cooking.  Oh, they would have jams, jellies, and all kinds of smoked meats.

Not sure if Tolkien went into any details about orc dietary habits, but I'd guess headhunter/cannibal.  They were very not nice.
