Middle-earth Menu: “Drogo’s Favorite Chicken”

  By Astrid Tuttle Winegar This is named for Frodo’s father, Drogo Baggins. He and his wife, Miss Primula Brandybuck, are the subject of some gossip early in The Lord of the Rings, where a few hobbits are trading stories at The Ivy Bush about Frodo’s background and how he eventually came to live with Bilbo.

Middle-earth Menu: “Bullroarer Took’s Pickled Cauliflower”

I am naming this for Bilbo’s legendary ancestor who was apparently so big (for a hobbit) he could actually ride a horse. Bullroarer Took was known for attacking some goblins during a particular battle and “knocked their king Golfimbul’s head clean off with a wooden club. It sailed a hundred yards through the air and went down a rabbit-hole, and ...
