      I own this cookbook and it's one of my favorites. The recipes are great. I've made several of them, mostly the baked goods that are suitable for breakfast, and I've enjoyed all of them. Just be aware that all of this is food fit for Hobbits and therefore is NOT health food, but of course, if you don't like an ingredient, it's usually easy to substitute with something a little healthier or simply reduce the amount.There is also some interesting information in this cookbook about historical meals, [...]

      The Unexpected Cookbook delivers on its promises. Explanations of what you're reading about and why and it's well enough researched.However, I found the typos to be jarring. It seems like it wasn't proofread more than once. Also, the lack of knowledge about American cuisine, and the lack of knowledge about American dinner vs supper was also very weird.Overall, a good book, that would be a lot better with a couple more proof reads.

      I love it I love it I love it.This cookbook is an absolute delight. The author included wonderful facts and anecdotes about Tolkien's childhood and the origin of hobbit food. The recipes are great. I am nostalgic for a time I didn't even live through.

    4. P on said:

      Loved the historical references and use of leftovers! I wish there was an easier way to cross-reference the recipes to see which ones would provide leftovers for which ones the next day for meal planning, I had to create my own chart.

    5. DK Hoffman on said:

      Well, I didn't exactly read every page, but I skimmed the "blurb" of each recipe. This book is a delight! We've made 15 of the recipes so far and have absolutely loved them. I especially like the suggestions for using the left overs - very economical and sensible. I'm an old fashioned cook (I use recipes that date back four generations in my family) and love the wholesome, country style goodness of these recipes.As someone else mentioned, I did notice a type-o and wish that the editing had been [...]

    6. Tory on said:

      Usually when I get a cookbook I just skim through the recipes, but when An Unexpected Cookbook came in the mail I sat down and read through every recipe step by step. Not only am I excited to make some delicious Hobbit inspired meals from these recipes, but I also learned a whole lot about Victorian-era food and cooking, and what types of things Tolkien would have eaten throughout his life. There's a lot of personality and humor mixed in throughout the steps of the recipes, which makes them more [...]

      Great recipes and fun readingThe recipes were great, and the author also used some quirkiness in the directions. For example: (quoting from memory, so not exact) "Cook up 5 strips of bacon. 3 go into the pie, 2 go into your mouth. If you don't want to eat extra bacon while cooking, just cook 3 strips." I've a actually made a couple of the dishes since purchasing this book, and they came out great!

      delightful! The recipes are right out of JRR Tolkien's world. The pictures of the food are incredible and the recipes are easy to follow. I also like the tibits of history behind each dish. I see a hobbit celebration in the near future, perhaps on September 22--Bilbo and Frodo's shared birthday. That would be perfect.

    9. Laura on said:

      I will definitely make a lot of the recipes in this cookbook. They are realistic, with ingredients readily available, and many of the recipes have vegan alternatives provided. Good photographs - I think there is a photo of each dish provided. And the recipes are organized by meals: Breakfast, Second Breakfast, Elevenses, etc.

    10. Elisabeth Gumbetter on said:

      Yum the yuckSome of the recipes are a perfect examples of a hobbit meal, but a lot of items would be hard to find or expensive. And then some just seem unappealing.

    11. Michelle Grandinetti on said:

      Loved itGreat read as well as some amazing recipes! Especially the roasted apples! Can't wait to get started! Perhaps with a LOTR marathon!
