Ever wonder what it's like to attend a feast at Winterfell? Wish you could split a lemon cake with Sansa Stark, scarf down a pork pie with the Night's Watch, or indulge in honeyfingers with Daenerys Targaryen? George R. R. Martin's bestselling saga A Song of Ice and Fire and the runaway hit HBO series Game of Thrones are renowned for bringing Westeros's sights and sounds to vivid life. But one important ingredient has always been missing: the mouthwatering dishes that form the backdrop of this extraordinary world. Now, fresh out of the series that redefined fantasy, comes the cookbook that may just redefine dinner . . . and lunch, and breakfast.
A passion project from superfans and amateur chefs Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Sariann Lehrer--and endorsed by George R. R. Martin himself-- A Feast of Ice and Fire lovingly replicates a stunning range of cuisines from across the Seven Kingdoms and beyond. From the sumptuous delicacies enjoyed in the halls of power at King's Landing, to the warm and smoky comfort foods of the frozen North, to the rich, exotic fare of the mysterious lands east of Westeros, there's a flavor for every palate, and a treat for every chef.
These easy-to-follow recipes have been refined for modern cooking techniques, but adventurous eaters can also attempt the authentic medieval meals that inspired them. The authors have also suggested substitutions for some of the more fantastical ingredients, so you won't have to stock your kitchen with camel, live doves, or dragon eggs to create meals fit for a king (or a khaleesi ). In all, A Feast of Ice and Fire contains more than 100 recipes, divided by region:
* The Wall: Rack of Lamb and Herbs; Pork Pie; Mutton in Onion-Ale Broth; Mulled Wine; Pease Porridge
* 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; Iced Milk with Honey
* Dorne: Stuffed Grape Leaves; Duck with Lemons; Chickpea Paste
* Across the Narrow Sea: Biscuits and Bacon; Tyroshi Honeyfingers; Wintercakes; Honey-Spiced Locusts
There's even a guide to dining and entertaining in the style of the Seven Kingdoms. Exhaustively researched and reverently detailed, accompanied by passages from all five books in the series and full-color photographs guaranteed to whet your appetite, this is the companion to the blockbuster phenomenon that millions of stomachs have been growling for. And remember, winter is coming--so don't be afraid to put on a few pounds.

This book is amazing! A friend used it for her Game of Thrones viewing party, she cooked a feast, everything was super tasty!

This book has a number of interesting recipes. Many of them are offered in two versions, one Medieval and the other Modern. This helps a lot in case one can't find certain ingredients. The recipes are short and to the point, very clearly written and doable even if you are not that experienced a cook. I guess one can get into costume and acquire hand-hammered cookware and do stuff in the fireplace if he desires the truly authentic experience.

There is an "Unofficial" Game of Thrones cookbook in our collection, too, and it's a horribly-written piece with poorly chosen recipies--a piece of trash in comparison to this lavishily photographed book full of fascinating medieval recipies culled from 14th century cookbooks, alongside modern "updates." Fascinating, with many tasty-looking recipes. A real treat for Ice & Fire fans, plus anyone looking to get a feel for real medival cooking.

Nice recipes but I would have preferred to be a bit more authentic with cast iron and copper cookware and bakeware recipes.

GREAT book! It includes authentic medieval recipes and herbs, etc alongside modern recipes. It includes quotes from the series where they mention the exact food before the recipe (WITHOUT SPOILERS!!) I have only read the first two books so far, and was pleasantly surprised that no spoilers were revealed - so have no fear. Heads up though, it's better just to buy this book and keep it in your collection!

A fun cookbook for Game of Thrones fans . Has recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and desert for all of the regions. Has a classic and modern recipe in most instances.

Now if she would just do the same thing for Downton Abbey
