12th Annual Grand Elven Ball Menu



As the tradition has it, we have specialities from many Elven areas; Lindon, Lothlórien and of course only the best local treats from Imladris. The food is cooked by Telpenaro of Nargothrond, a passionate farmer and a chef and some by lady Inyahin.

Guests will find a selection of food on the tables, free for them to take.

Lossepië

Upon the change of seasons Yavanna gives her last fruits and the nature gets its first shining veil as it prepares to rest. This very large oval cake shows the scenery with a colourful foliage, and the fruits have not been touched by the frost as they are lovingly picked from Telpenaro's greenhouse. It's made of apples and cherries, whipped cream, merigue buttercream, sponge cake, cookies, confections, and pastry puffs.
