The Game of Thrones characters are always drinking wine; wine, in fact, is what messed up King Robert’s hunt and subsequently leads to his death. Make some mulled wine at home, but be sure not to drink too much!
After King Robert died, the boar which killed him was served at his funeral feast. According to Cersei, “it tasted like triumph”. Taste triumph yourself with this recipe.
While it’s not an official food or drink, the Tears of Lys play an important role in the show. Cersei procures some from the Maester just before the battle at King’s Landing. And, it’s what was used to kill Jon Arryn; an event which arguably set all the other events in motion. Make the ‘poison’ using this recipe.
Hot Pie serves Brienne and Podrick Payne a kidney pie at an inn when they’re looking for Arya and Sansa. He gives them specific instructions on how to make a kidney pie; ” A good kidney pie is all about the ingredients. Flour, lard, water, eggs, milk – easy enough. But the meat? Peacetime or not, getting your hands on a good bottom round steak and calves’ kidneys is not easy. I mean, some people settle for plain old beef kidneys. Got no right to cook anything, them. Oh, and the gravy! Don’t get me started on the gravy. Very difficult to get right. See, a lot of people give up on the gravy. You cannot give up on the gravy. No gravy, no pie – Simple as that.” Sounds delicious, does it not? Head here for the recipe.
Arya and the Hound enjoy some delicious rabbit stew when they dine with Sally and her father near Fairmet. Try making some at home with this recipe.
At Margarey and Joffery’s wedding, Jofferey cuts through a pigeon pie with his new sword. Later, Lollys tells Bronn she wants a pigeon pie at their wedding. While that wedding never happened, you can make a faux pigeon pie yourself using duck.
Ghost enjoys some honeyed chicken when Jon flicks some on the floor: “Hungry again?’ he asked. There was still half a honeyed chicken in the center of the table. Jon reached out to tear off a leg, then had a better idea. He knifed the bird whole and let the carcass slide to the floor between his legs. Ghost ripped into it in savage silence.” We imagine this chicken will make a savage out of you too; say goodbye to polite table manners and just dig in. Here’s the recipe.
