Writer Pays Tribute to His Late Father With a 14-Course Lord of the Rings Marathon Meal

The menu includes second breakfast, lots of meat, and, of course, lembas bread.

To commemorate the anniversary of his father’s death, UK writer Nate Crowley decided to get together with one of his friends and have a Lord of the Rings movie marathon. But he wouldn’t simply be binging the three, epic, hours-long films, he’d also be binging food. To really do his old man proud, Crowley took the viewing party up another level by creating a 14-course menu so that he and his pal would be eating in parallel with characters on screen.

Crowley certainly did not cut any corners in creating this one-of-a-kind culinary experience. He made sure to list all of the food enjoyed by hobbits, elves, dwarves and even orcs over the course of the beloved trilogy. The hilarious list accounted for all the eating in the Lord of the Rings movies, including second breakfast, ‘Denethor’s grim dinner,’ and something called an ‘orc power drink.’ He even made ‘lembas bread,’ though hopefully, he didn’t make too much, as the elvish snack famously makes one feel full after just one bite.

Over the course of the marathon, Crowley continued to post pictures of every single one of his LOTR-themed creations, showing off his unique interpretations.

Some of the meals were nice and easy, like a handful of carrots.

Some were a bit more heavy (literally and metaphorically), like having to eat this meat-based version of a dead orc.

He even managed to find some coneys and boil ’em, mash ’em, and stick ’em in a stew.

Crowley and his friend were probably about ready to enter a food coma by the time they finished up their third movie, but Crowley said that overstuffing himself with multiple types of meat was a perfect way to honor his dad.
