I was wondering if any of you know any LotR quotes about food or eating?
Any help is much appreciated!
Thanks :)

Movie, or book?

Bilbo: [Mutters in the background] I was expecting you sometime last week. Not that it matters. You come and go as you please. Always have done and always will. You caught me a bit unprepared, I'm afraid. We've only got some cold chicken and a bit of pickle... There's some cheese. Oh no, that won't do. We've got raspberry jam, an apple tart... But not much for afters. Oh, no, we're all right. I've just found some sponge cake.

Aragorn: Gentlemen, We do not stop until nightfall.
Pippin: But what about breakfeast?
Aragron: We've had one yes. What about second breakfeast?
Merry: I don't think he knows about second breakfast Pip.
Pippin: What about elevenses? Luncheon? Afternoon tea?
Dinner? Supper? He knows about them, doesn't he?

Legolas: Lembas. Elvish waybread. One small bite is enough to fill the stomach of a grown man.
Merry: How many did you eat?
Pippin: Four.


Gollom: Taters? What's taters percious?
Sam: Po-ta-toes. Boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew. Lovely big golden chips with a nice piece of fried fish.
Sam: Even you couldn't say no to that.
Sméagol: Oh yes we could. Ssspoiling nice fish! Give it to us raw and wwwriggling. You keep nasty chips!

Frodo: What food have we got left?
Sam: Well, let me see. Oh yes, lovely. Lembas bread. And look! More lembas bread. I don't usually hold with foreign food, but this elvish stuff is not bad.

Gollum: Rock and pool, so nice and cool. Juicy fish so nice and sweet!


Gimli: You, young rascals! A merry hunt you've lead us on, and now we find you feasting and - and smoking!
Pippin: We are sitting on the field of victory, enjoying a few well-earned comforts. The salted pork is particulary good.
Gimli: Salted pork?
Thank you so much! :)

(I think the second one was the exact one I was trying to think of, too!)
Best thing is to find a text copy of the books then search the text for food-related passages. :) What sort of quotes were you looking for? About food itself or the lack thereof? About eating in general or specific food types/meals?
I was just curious about general ones, but I think I've found what I was looking for now. Thanks!

Pippin: What about breakfast?
Aragorn: You've already had it.
Pippin: We've had one yes., but what about second breakfast?
Merry: I don't think he's heard of second breakfast, pip.
Pippin: What about elevenses? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper? He's heard of those right?
Merry: I wouldn't count on it.

Pippin: Ash on my tomatos!

Pippin: MUSHROOMS!!!

Pippin: What's that?
Merry: This, my friend, is a pint.
Pippin: It comes in pints? I'm getting one!
I don't have my copy of the trilogy with me, so I can't be much help, but I recall a few nice passages regarding Farmer Maggot's fields in the Fellowship and the rabbit stew scene in TTT, right before Faramir's men catch Sam and Frodo. There's more to Gollum's fish song, I think it can be found when Faramir nearly orders his men to shoot Gollum for trespassing. And if you just want Tolkien, then look for the scene in The Hobbit where the three trolls debate how to cook the dwarves. I can't be more help without an actual book in front of me. All I have with me at the moment is a copy of the Sil, which is not known for dialogue. Or plot.
