A Game of Thrones Feast

A Game of Thrones Feast


Yield : 4, or as many as you want

   Print Party

Some of us are huge Game of Thrones (or GOT to the cognoscente) fans, so we thought it would be fun to have a dinner party followed by a viewing of an episode of the new season.  In looking for recipe ideas, we found the perfect cookbook:  George R. R. Martins Game of Thrones, A Feast of Ice & Fire, The Official Cooking Companion by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Sariann Lehrer.  Each of the recipes in the book is accompanied by a quote from one of the books in the series that features that recipe. They also add modern versions of some of the recipes, but we picked all period ones that have the added benefit of being quite easy to make.

So, gather your friends and enjoy the feast.  Costumes and broadswords optional.

What to Drink :

Honey-sweetened wine:  Use an off-dry white or rosé, such as a Riesling, Vouvray, or White Zinfandel.  Add up to a tablespoon of honey for each glass of wine, depending on your taste, add a few squeezes of lime juice, and mix it all together.  This can be made ahead of time and refrigerated. 

Or, pear brandy.  The cookbook has a recipe for making your own, but you can just buy it.  We would add it to Champagne, even though not era-appropriate, just because.  (Apparently, until the 18th century, bubbles were considered a defect in wine.  And the bottles often exploded.  Not good.)
