“I am a very talented eater, though not much of a cook.” -George RR Martin
Alright folks. It is now July, and the official release date for Dance with Dragons is quickly approaching. On July 12th, George RR Martin begins his book signing tour, right outside Boston.
To show our appreciation for all George’s hard work, we are planning to pack a basket of Westerosi goodies for the first signing, in Burlington MA. We’re putting out a call for other fans to make up baskets of edibles for George as he tours the country, so that he can really get a great taste of the world he has shared with all of us.
So, if you want to be a star and support George, as well as your favorite Westeros food blog, let us know, so we can put you on the schedule!
**We recommend making small portioned dishes, such as mini pies, and foods that can be transported easily. Baskets or boxes should be smallish, with just a few foods. Please don’t try to bring a whole honeyed chicken or roasted aurochs to a book signing! We are also affixing labels to everything, as well, so George can tell what he’s eating. :) **
