There is no middle ground
When you play the Game of Food, you win …
You don’t have to be a fan of the epic novel series A Song of Ice and Fire to relish the recipes in this delightful book. You don’t even need to be an ardent medieval cook! You need a healthy appetite for a nourishing meal, some good knives, hungry friends and a wicked sense of adventure.
I’m having a wonderful time cooking my way through the recipes from the Game of Thrones, come and join me.
As well as being treated to a fascinating background of the historical medieval meals which inspired these recipes, they all have thrilling names, straight from the novels. You can whip up these snacks in your kitchen, indulge your guests with a Night’s Watch Pork Pie, followed by Riverlands Trout Wrapped in Bacon, then finishing off the repast with King’s Landing Lemon Cakes, and Tyroshi Honeyfingers.

Ice and Fire is full of Food descriptions – Now we have the recipes
If you’ve only watched the HBO series, Game of Thrones, then you’ve missed the wonderfully rich descriptions of food found in the novels.
Just as Geoffrey Chaucer did, GRRM uses food as a literary device to enrich the personalities of his characters.
I must confess to lingering over the scenes around the banqueting tables, a truly visceral experience, and I kept rereading bits from the bakery, especially Sansa’s lemon cakes. You can start cooking today with ‘A Feast of Ice and Fire’. The gorgeous cover is enough to call you to the kitchen – and to the dining table!
