An Author’s Thrill: Recipes from the Worlds of J.K. Rowling & J.R.R. Tolkien

As a reader, it’s always fun to find recipes for foods from your favorite books for movies. I recently came across one for homemade butterbeer, and, of course, many people have tried to recreate Tolkien’s cakes and foods from The Hobbit, including researching the kinds of food that Tolkien would have been familiar with (“Food in The Hobbit).

Thinking about it as an author, though, wouldn’t that have to be a huge thrill? I’m trying to imaging making up a food in a story and having people like my book so much that they try to recreate that food. What a compliment!
