Hobbit food, or, Elevenses yes please

"The next day he had almost forgotten about Gandalf. He did not remember things very well, unless he put them down on his Engagement Tablet: like this: Gandalf Tea Wednesday. Yesterday he had been too flustered to do anything of the kind..."

Check out Food in Tolkien's The Hobbit, on http://recipewise.co.uk. It provides historical context (the Shire as Victorian England?) plus recipes for seedcake, etc. so that "we can faithfully recreate that same Tea Party that Bilbo, Gandalf and the Dwarves so enjoyed."

Sure, you can recreate the food, but what about the Dwarves to help you do the washing up? It just wouldn't be the same....

Excellent point. Not to mention the after-dinner entertainment with harps, flutes, drums, etc.
