The Shire Cookbook – Recipes from a Halfling´s Kitchen
Embark on a culinary journey to the Shire, where halfling cuisine calls for seven meals a day! Hearty and sweet dishes for first and second breakfast, a light elevenses snack, and then a hearty lunch of pork pie and other favorites get them through the first part of the day. For afternoon tea, halflings refresh themselves with tasty sandwiches or summer cakes. The evening meal is rather modest in comparison, but at night they really dig in. Westfarthing rabbit, trout with herb butter, braised lamb shanks, and many more delicacies are on the menu. Oh, to be a halfling!
For this book, Chelsea Monroe-Cassel has gathered over 40 recipes from the Shire that evoke all the wonderful aromas, flavors, and culinary hospitality of a halfling cottage.
About the Author
Chelsea grew up in rural New York, surrounded by cows and an appreciation for small farms. However, her real love affair with food began during a year abroad in Turkey, which sparked a passion for both culinary matters and history. A lifelong artist and fantasy fan, she greatly enjoys foreign languages, treasure hunting, and all things related to honey. Like the literature she loves, Chelsea’s work is a synthesis of imagination and historical research. She is focused on bringing other fantasy worlds to life through food, photography, art, and digital media. She and her husband live in an old Vermont farmhouse with their two kids and an assortment of pets.
