Lembas

Type: Food & Drink

Other Names:
Waybread
Elf-cake

Description:“The food was mostly in the form of very thin cakes, made of a meal that was baked a light brown on the outside, and inside was the colour of cream.”

“But we call it lembas or waybread, and it is more strengthening than any food made by Men, and it is more pleasant than cram, by all accounts.”

“The cakes will keep sweet for many many days, if they are unbroken and left in their leaf-wrappings, as we have brought them. One will keep a traveler on his feet for a day of long labour, even if he be one of the tall Men of Minas Tirith.”

Farewell to Lorien, pg.480-481, LotR: FotR

"Lembas does put heart into you! A more wholesome sort of feeling, too, than the heat of that orc-draught."

The Uruk-hai, Ch 3, Book III, TTT
