About this author


John D. Rateliff isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but he does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from his feed.
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.
