Lord of the Rings inspired recipes?

I'll be visiting a friends house in two days and we'll be watching The Fellowship of the Ring.

We want to cook some LOTR dishes to go along with it, but nothing too complex; we did the same thing before (HP dishes for an HP marathon), and we may have gotten a little over our heads. We're not idiots, but anything too complex or that requires an experienced hand in the kitchen will probably fail.

So maybe one or two simple LOTR dishes. I found this website:

http://lotrscrapbook.bookloaf.net/other/recipes.html

but what I also want is stuff that tastes good. Maybe someone else has attempted this before and has suggestions? Either way, let me know. Thanks!

(P.S. We're thinking light stuff [so not like a roasted lamb or whatever; just gimmicky tea and bread or maybe some easy pastries]).

I hate you and you hate me.

    You can hardly get simple than the staples of fantasy food, really. Get a loaf (or more) of nice, fresh bread from a local bakery and warm it in the oven, serve it with soft butter and an assortment of cheeses, honey, and apples. Maybe have some cider to go along with it, too. Tea would be good, like you mentioned, and you could pick up a pack of cider as well.

    Don't forget about mead! You can usually find it in the specialty section of your fancier liquor stores. For meat, I would do those little chicken drumsticks for simplicity's sake (you can probably get a bag of em at the frozen aisle).

    Came for this.

    I hear the salted pork is particularly good.

    Need to snack the entire time for elevensies, etc.

    Just go with basic stuff; bread, meat, beer.

    Be wary, American mead is sometimes honey mixed with white wine rather than fermented honey. Check the label, but mead is a really good treat if you can find it.

    Thanks, guys! We're just going to keep it simple with bread and some cheeses and tea tonight. But we still have two more movies so we still have two more LOTR food sessions! I'll definitely keep everything suggested here in mind.

    Thanks again.

    (And I will definitely keep that website in mind for the inevitable GoT marathon. Thanks, Esh.)

    I hate you and you hate me.

    They're probably on that site, but there's an old Lord of the Rings art book (like from the 80s or 90s at the latest) that has a bunch of recipes. I think a few of them are even in Elvish.

    And, uh, I can't remember what it was called, so whatever.

    Stew has been around since the times of Herodotus. They require some time to cook but you won't have to check up on it every waking minute. Start early with the preparation and you can just let it cook by itself, ready to serve in the evening. Specifically Beef Ragout is super tasty.

    Don't know about LOTR, but if you guys are A Song of Ice and Fire (a.k.a. Game of Thrones) fans then there's The Inn at the Crossroads.

    I want to eat everything on that site.

    Also, http://fan.theonering.net/writing/recipes/

    I've made the Scotch Eggs Strider. There's nothing especially LoTR'ish about them, but they're delicious scotch eggs!
