This week, host Teffer Adjemian (@tefferbear) chats with special guest Emma Lanza about the food of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit & Lord of the Rings! We’re talking books, movies, AND animated adaptations, with apologies to the book purists out there, because, let’s be real, visual depictions of fictional food are wonderful and worth exploring too! What the heck are “seed cake” and “lembas bread?” What can Bilbo Baggins teach us about hospitality? Is Samwise Gamgee the ultimate salt-loving bisexual icon?
