And The Answer Is: Oysters Served With Lemon

And the question?

"What was J. R. R. Tolkien's favorite food?"

source: The Tolkien Estate website, 'Paths' section, F.A.Q., Biographical Information.

Which just goes to show: in thirty-three years of reading Tolkien, and reading about Tolkien, I don't believe I've ever come across a mention of any character of his eating an oyster. Mushrooms and potatoes and fresh bread, yes: shellfish, no.


today's songs: Love Changes Everything (Clime Fisher), Secondhand Love (Pete Townsend), Johnny & Mary (Rbt Palmer)
currently reading: ANGRY OPTIMIST, the biography of Jon Stewart.
