Every once in a while an opportunity comes along that you just can't pass up. And when my photog friend Chelsea announced that she was shooting a cookbook and that she needed helpers, I had to sign up to help.
After all, who would turn down bribes? Not me, that's for sure. I offer Exhibit A: the practice strawberries.
And Exhibit B: I would finally get to meet the infamous Pickles Barrington.
Yes, I can be bribed with chocolate drizzled strawberries and kitten snuggles. Always.
I'm sorry. Was I being vague about the actual contents of this cookbook? My apologies.
The cookbook is entitled Medium Rare and Back Again: A Tolkien Cookbook (I know right!) and was created by Heath Dill, chef and author of foodie blog Dillicious . The cookbook was a kickstarter project, so you can follow the book's progress on the original kickstarter page or on the Dillicious Facebook page.
