Many of you have been asking for inspiration for your S7 feasts, so I thought I’d put together this little idea list. One of my favorite “themes” for a meal we did was one where we “traveled” the Kingsroad, sampling dishes as we went. This was pretty early on in the days of the blog, but it was a fun and different way to build a menu. These are fairly straightforward routes along the main North-South Kingsroad, but feel free to alter the route to include other places, such as the Iron Islands.
So, without further ado, let’s get going! And be sure to throw any extra suggestions into the ring, as well!
Note: italicized dishes are in the GoT cookbook, A Feast of Ice and Fire
