Massachusetts-based chef Heath Dill, who has catered at Corey Olsen’s Tolkien movie marathon events, has launched a campaign on Kickstarter to help fund his new book, Medium Rare and Back Again, which will feature at least 30 Tolkien-themed recipes alongside pictures, cooking tips, and commentary from both Dill and Olsen. Some of Dill’s recipes – which he aims to update in his cookbook – are already posted on his blog, Dillicious.
In the five days since he launched his campaign, Dill has already reached half of his $10,000 goal. If he can make 100% by December 20, the project will be a go, and any additional funds raised will be used to further expand upon this project. However, if he does not make 100%, the project will not be funded at all.
As a “thank you” to those who donate, Dill is offering several tiers of rewards, ranging from recipe cards and t-shirts to a signed copy of Olsen’s book, Exploring J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Hobbit,’ or even VIP tickets to one of Olsen’s Movie Marathon Events – catered, of course, by Dill himself.
If you can’t donate, don’t fret! You can still help by spreading the word to all your friends and family about this project.
