Awesome.

Food, that is.

We all know how much George R.R. Martin loves his food, and you can’t help but notice his enthusiasm in his books. A pair of bloggers started taking all the mentions of food in A Song of Ice and Fire and making recipes for them.

This book was put together better than I had expected. There are quotes and citations from where in the books the recipes are taken from, there are additional notes about creating an atmosphere and general medieval cooking, and the sections are divided by region (e.g. The Wall, Winterfell, etc.).

I cannot recommend enough the mulled wine recipe (perfect for chilly ski trips!), which can also be found here

My only complaint is that most of the recipes are meat-centric, and I’m a vegetarian.

Buy this because you like food and A Song of Ice and Fire, but don’t expect a regular cookbook.
