February Prompt: I Thoroughly Recommend the....

But The Very Useful Guide mentioned a particularly good inn at Orchyre that served a famous jellied eel…
-Garth Nix, Lirael

A while ago over on Ink Splatters we talked about the importance of food in books. But in fictional worlds where there’s no such thing as a ‘Very Useful Guide’, how do intrepid heroes know which inn to stop at after a long days travel? Let’s help them out a bit.

For this prompt, I’d like you to write a restaurant review (200 words or more) for a fictional inn, restaurant, café or food stall. You could write a review of the Prancing Pony from the point of view of a Hobbit food blogger, give Daily Prophet readers a run-down of The Three Broomsticks new menu or anything else you can think of. Just make it fictional and make it foody (and HOL appropriate, of course).

You’ll earn 20 beans for completing this prompt as well as it counting towards the chance to snag our shiny Quill and Ink award.

There is no deadline as such for these prompts but if you’d like it to count towards your chance of earning the award for a specific year, we’ll need it by the end of that school year. If you’re comfortable sharing, then post below. If not, email your story to us via hol.bookclub @ gmail.com (without the spaces). Oh and remember it’s a good idea to check through your piece carefully for spelling and grammatical errors as they make it harder for people to properly enjoy your work.
