Meanwhile, the food in high fantasy is heavily influenced by medieval European, if not British fare, thanks to the looming influence of literary giants like J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis (both English) over the genre. Meals that are described in vivid detail—from the grand feasts in the Harry Potter series and The Chronicles Of Narnia, to the hobbits’ tri-breakfasts— always contain very English dishes: sausages, roasted game, and pies. High fantasy often places emphasis on the act of breaking bread to bring a rag-tag team of adventurers together, or inverting the trope by introducing calamity during a supposedly joyous feast or banquet. This is a plot device made notorious by George R. R. Martin's A Song Of Ice And Fire novels. Occasionally, familiar foods become fantastic versions of themselves, reminding readers that there is magic in these lands, like the perplexingly unpleasant candies in the Harry Potter series (think Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans), or supernaturally-sustaining lembas bread (a biteful will keep you going for a day) from The Lord of the Rings.
