Ever wonder what it’s like to attend a feast at Winterfell? Wish you could split a lemon cake with Sansa Stark, scarf down a pork pie with the Night’s Watch, or indulge in honeyfingers with Daenerys Targaryen?
Wonder no longer.
In May of 2012, A Feast of Ice and Fire was released online and in bookstores around the world, bringing all the best recipes of Westeros right to your home kitchen.
The Official Game of Thrones Cookbook features a foreword from GRRM himself, along with a range of recipes from across the Seven Kingdoms and over the Narrow Sea. From the sumptuous delicacies enjoyed in the halls of power at King’s Landing, to the warm and smoky comfort foods of the frozen North, to the rich, exotic fare of the mysterious lands east of Westeros, there’s a flavor for every palate, and a treat for every chef.
There’s even a guide to dining and entertaining in the style of the Seven Kingdoms. Exhaustively researched and reverently detailed, accompanied by passages from all five books in the series and full-color photographs guaranteed to whet your appetite, this is the companion to the blockbuster phenomenon that millions of stomachs have been growling for.
So, come along on a culinary tour of Westeros. Sample the rich meats and ales of The Wall, and explore the more exotic fare of Pentos. Share sweetwine and chickpea puree with Doran Martell, and of course, indulge in Lemoncakes and stolen fruit tarts with Sansa and Arya.
And remember, winter is coming—so don’t be afraid to put on a few pounds. :)
