    Just heard you two on the Podcast of Ice & Fire. This site is awesome! I live in Boston so if you ever need somebody with a huge appetite to destroy the evidence of a failed meal, I’m your man.

    I just stumbled upon this website searching for a recipe for scotch eggs. The fact that I found one AND the website is GoT inspired is an amazing find and has brightened my day. I am now a loyal follower.

    So, seems like you ladies are in the UK? Having a medieval themed Thanksgiving this year and going to some of these amazing dishes, including the creme swans! Awesome!

    1. Needs Mead says:

      We’re actually based in Boston, but because we are both big Anglophiles, are always delighted to be so misplaced. :) A few of these recipes will also be making it to our Thanksgiving Day tables for sure. Let us know what your finished menu looks like!

  12. Karen from Globetrotter Diaries says:

    Just want to say that your food blog is really interesting. Keep up the good work!

  14. Ben says:

    I just bought your cookbook for my girlfriend (possibly not the wisest move when I’m trying to lose weight, but what the hey), since we’ve both followed your blog for the longest time. We both really love what you’re doing here. Thank you for bringing all that mouthwatering food out of the pages of ASOIAF.

    p.s. I’m also fanatically United.

    Hope you continue blogging frequently, your posts are excellent! I especially like your sense of presentation.
