In honor of the upcoming premiere of Game of Thrones on HBO, we have put together a selection of foods that would be ideal for any premiere party. We’ve included a selection of full recipes for those willing to try their hands in the kitchen, but also provided a “fake it” option for those with less time for or inclination towards preparation.
In this category, we’ve thrown out a bunch of options, and will leave the decisions to you! You can choose to make one thing, or all of them (if you’re feeding an army). Options are listed in order from left to right, more difficult to easier.
For this category, we have listed all the easy food stuffs you can get at most stores, and put together for your guests to nibble on. Think of it as a tasty wayfarer’s meal, eaten on The King’s Road, between Winterfell and King’s Landing.
Loaf of Rustic Bread ♦ Variety of cheeses (cheddar, brie, chevre, etc.) ♦ Pickles
Big Bunch of Grapes ♦ Slices of Blood Oranges, Pears, and Apples in Lemon Juice
Pita and Hummus ♦ Variety of Olives ♦ Packaged Stuffed Grape Leaves
Store-bought Rotisserie Chicken ♦ Pre-marinated Shish Kebab Skewers
Mead ♦ Wine ♦ Cider ♦ Ale
NOTE: The trick to faking it effectively is purchasing high quality ingredients and presenting them well. Consider visiting Whole Foods. If you want to feel like you are at Winterfell, the bread needs to be crusty and authentic and the cheese should come from some small farm in Vermont. Serve on your largest wooden cutting board, with your most rustic looking knife.
