See my story "Freida's Frypan Frolic" for a tale involving food and Queen Evenstar's winter time melancholy. A few of my readers asked me to Email them my actual recipe.
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed this and I will, indeed, look for your story.
Lovely! (Both the stories and the recipes.) I like how the recipes bring back memories of the elf's teacher. There is definitely something about baking a dish that brings to mind people who enjoyed it or who first taught you that recipe and you've captured that so well here.
I'm really glad you like it. We do associate recipes with people, don't we? For example those are 'Mum's cinnamon biscuits' in my book where I record recipes.
Fantastic! Such an original slant, at least I have not seen the likes of this before.
I love the perspective, the hints of who, and why, until the end when all is revealed.
Wonderful writing :)
Thank you! I first saw a recipe fic in a Big Bang story about Hobbits - I may well have written the first Elf-centric one here... although, of course, once you know what is happening you can see that it is also about hobbit recipes!
What a lovely collection of recipes. I am especially interested in the pepper cake :)
Thank you! The pepper cake is rather like a parkin or a gingerbread; if you do try it, let us know how you get on with it.
Yum, these are very tasty stories! I love knowing they are about Tharh
Oh- how did you make me cry at the end of this and leave me feeling so bereft. I assume this is our winter elfing with Sam. Too sad, too poignant and all set with a beautifully written dialogue with Sam's voice SO strong in this. I wish the MEFAs were still around- you would win first place for Hobbits.
*I wish the MEFAs were still around- you would win first place for Hobbits.*
Oh thank you so much!
It is almost always our winter elfling with Sam. If you read carefully, his tutor was Erestor, his teacher was Sam - and just occasionally, as in the 'the well loved voice' in the very first one, or 'Adar' in the meringues, you hear Frodo instead...
