Often when I am writing a hobbit story, I look for historical recipes that might possibly have been made in the Shire.

Recently, I came across an amazing series of vids made by Jonathon Townsend, of Jas. Townsend and Sons, a company that caters to historical re-enactment groups. Each recipe is explained clearly and concisely, and is prepared in a historically accurate reproduction kitchen, the host wearing period clothing. Even so, he explains how to make it in a modern kitchen as well, and how to substitute hard to find ingredients or where to find them if they cannot be substituted.

Also, Mr. Townsend (IMHO) looks to me very hobbity!

Here's his recipe for "White Pot", a recipe for a sort of bread pudding:



I can't wait to try this one myself!
