DINING IN WESTEROS A FEAST OF ICE AND FIRE
August 14, 2012
You have read George R.R. Martin’s magnificent descriptions of sumptuous banquets in his saga A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE.
You have watched his characters revel at these amazing feasts in HBO’s GAME OF THRONES.
Now you can enjoy these mouthwatering Westeros dishes in your own home with A FEAST OF ICE AND FIRE cookbook.
Amateur chefs and devoted fans Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Sariann Lehrer carefully researched authentic medieval meals and lovingly followed George’s writings to replicate meals from across the Seven Kingdoms. Thoughtfully keeping in mind that we all might not have access to Dragon eggs and camel, they have tailored these easy-to-follow recipes to fit a modern kitchen. Sariann and Chelsea originally started posting their recipes online at InnAtTheCrossroads.com; a website named after the inn which appears often in Martin’s series. The website grew an enthusiastic following and with George R.R. Martin’s endorsement, this book was born.
Over 100 scrumptious meals fit for a King (or a khaleesi) are included in this lavishly illustrated book. The recipes are accompanied by passages from all five books in the series and a guide to dining and entertaining in the styles of the Seven Kingdoms.
Here are a few of the delectable dishes:
* The Wall: Rack of Lamb and Herbs; Pork Pie; Mutton in Onion-Ale Broth; Mulled Wine
* The North: Beef and Bacon Pie; Honeyed Chicken; Aurochs with Roasted Leeks; Baked Apples
* The South: Cream Swans; Trout Wrapped in Bacon; Stewed Rabbit; Sister’s Stew; Blueberry Tarts
* King’s Landing: Lemon Cakes; Quails Drowned in Butter; Almond Crusted Trout; Bowls of Brown
