Are you obsessed with Game of Thrones? It seems like everyone is watching the final season. Throughout the reign of GOT people have talked about the sumptuous food on the show. We’ve spotted all kinds of GOT dishes on social media, though often made with substitute proteins. Sadly, chicken does not replace squab. D’Artagnan can supply you with the unusual ingredients needed to cook in the style of the Seven Kingdoms, just in time for the finale. Read on for the details.
The eye-popping feasts on Game of Thrones can be recreated at home thanks to superfans and amateur chefs Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Sariann Lehrer, who collaborated on A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Companion Cookbook.
Food is one of life’s great pleasures, and I am all in favor of pleasure. Reading is another of those things that help make life worth living, and when one can combine reading and food, well … This is why my novels are so full of food. When I read, as when I travel, I want to see the sights, smell the flowers, and, yes, taste the food. But unlike my world of Westeros, or the real-life Middle Ages, the twenty-first century is a golden age, at least where food is concerned. Ours is an age of plenty, where foods of all types are readily available at any season, and even the most exotic spices can be purchased at the nearest grocery store, at prices that do not require you to mortgage your castle.
– George R.R. Martin, from the introduction
