Bree might stand on the very edge of the wild, but that’s not to say they don’t offer the comforts of a good Inn and solid hearty food of the best kind! Checkout this delectable looking Blackberry Tart!
“There was hot soup, cold meats, and a blackberry tart, new loaves, slabs of butter, and half a ripe cheese:” ~ J.R.R.Tolkien
Here is another Lord of the Rings recipes from The Feast of Starlight, which offers recipes you’ve only seen and read about in movies and books.
This recipe comes right out of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, when the four hobbit fleeing from the Black Riders find comfort, safety and sustenance at The Prancing Pony.
In chapter 9 of The Fellowship of the Ring, ‘At the Sign of the Prancing Pony’, Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin find the Inn offers good solid Hobbit fare…
“There was hot soup, cold meats, and a blackberry tart, new loaves, slabs of butter, and half a ripe cheese: good plain food, as good as the Shire can show, and homelike enough to dispel the last of Sam’s misgivings (already much relieved by the excellence of the beer).”
This wonderful dark tart looks absolutely fresh and delicious, with berries likely picked from the black berry patch that runs along the fences of Bree!
