Well, it's quite obvious! [In reply to] Can't Post

The map on the left, which uses food indications from the movies, must have been the one posted on the other site.

Whereas you, keeping true to the textual references, have presented the map on the right. (That would make a good quiz - match the food to the area!)

And I think I'd rather search for meals using the book-foods map, especially as it leads one to Rivendell rather than Weathertop for pleasant dining. I'll stay away from both Eregion and Moria, though. (It's interesting that the areas on the movie-foods map tend to be larger than those on the book-foods map.)

It would be just like you to fool us with the "Middle Earth" spelling. [In reply to] Can't Post

And the "Pre-book at restaurants" joke is good!

My guess is that both maps are yours.


Treachery, treachery I fear; treachery of that miserable creature.

But so it must be. Let us remember that a traitor may betray himself and do good that he does not intend.

I like your joke about Denethor's eatables :) [In reply to] Can't Post

It's interesting how the movie makers also used food in that scene to illustrate Denethor's character, though the method and effect were different.

I should check that "other site" more often. [In reply to] Can't Post

Just found your source! Laugh

Yours is almost definitely the one on the right [In reply to] Can't Post

I love the accuracy and attention to detail. One thing, though: I'm surprised there's no reference to the heady wines of Dorwinion in Thranduil's halls, or the dry, uninspiring waybread known as Cram in Erebor. And the infamous honey-cakes of the Beornings! (I can't tell you how disappointed I was that Peter Jackson's Hobbit movies didn't show off the honey-cakes of the Beornings).

Sure! but... [In reply to] Can't Post

The original limited itself to The Lord of the Rings, and thus so did I in my version.

So the "Middle Earth" or "Middle-earth" in the title is kind of deceptive, unless we reflect that Bilbo's world in The Hobbit is never actually called that - at least, not in the book!

I must confess that I didn't think of that! [In reply to] Can't Post

Very tricksy! I guessd the second one. Do i get half marks if they turn out to be both?

oooo... I like this :D [In reply to] Can't Post

As soon as I looked at this a thousand days ago, I knew I wanted to investigate this when I had time to give it. :)

Ok... my guess is that map/list 2 is yours. The spelling of Middle-earth is the first clue. Middle Earth makes me twitch!

1. What are the differences?
The 2nd has food references more from the text and describes the food with the detail and importance a Hobbit would give :)
The 1st one shows all of Mordor open for dinner. So Not! The hobbits basically starved most of the time there.
The 1st one was done by a movie-goer with oodles of movie references.

2. Which world has more appealing Food Tour destinations - to you?

The 2nd! It's more genuine.

3. Which came first, and which is my response?

The 2nd one must be yours. It's factual, realistic, and sounds very yummy! :)


This was great! Thanks!
