Who knew a series could be so delicious – literally. If you are a Game of Thrones fan, then you know that the George R. R. Martin’s series resumes on HBO today and season 2 of Game of Thrones promises to be just as blood thirsty and thrilling as the first. So what better way to prepare for a night of dragons and backstabbing, than with an authentic Game of Thrones feast.
Obviously people have become so fascinated with these books and now the television series, that they want to prepare meals as if they themselves were living in Winterfell. But hold onto your seats because not just one cookbook, but two cookbooks are on their way to store shelves. The first is an unofficial cookbook for Game of Thrones, while A Feast of Ice & Fire is an official companion cookbook for the series, which have been approved by George R. R. Martin himself.
Personally I never even looked at any of the food that was being eaten on the show, as I was too absorbed in watching Snow and his Direwolf, or Arya swashbuckling with her little sword. But I guess others have, and while the ‘unofficial’ cookbook offers up lighter fair like lemon cakes, meatloaf, and a selection of stews, all of them baring cheeky names – for example: Dead Man’s Roasted Vegetables or Tyrion’s Leg of Lamb. I doubt the ‘official’ cookbook will be so loose with its naming, but it to promises sumptuous recipes that everyone should be able to recreate – from feasts to intimate dinners at a brothel…
