It’s been one of my dreams to attend one of the evening banquet tours in the Hobbiton movie set in Matamata, New Zealand. I’m sure it’s every fan’s dream to visit Hobbiton and to actually have dinner in the Green Dragon Inn. Once September came around and my mind started churning ideas for Hobbit Day, I’ve been obsessing over photos and videos from people’s trip to of the tour and banquet. If you’re ever in the area, I feel it’s a must to have dinner there! Find more information here about the banquet feast.
A Hobbit’s diet is quite simple. They eat what they can grow and harvest which means their diet is quite simple. It’s full of roasts, vegetables, and herbs that are cooked to perfection. For this feast, I wanted to keep the menu simple with items that are easily shared and that can cooked in big batches. I’ll be posting recipes throughout the week, which some are actually repeats from posts I made a while ago (including seed cakes and apple tarts). I always have a lot of fun creating recipes from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and I hope you all enjoy it as well.
