Winter may have arrived in Westeros, but that’s not going to stop our favorite Game of Thrones characters from indulging in their favorite sweets, meats, and goblets upon goblets of various boozes. (Or at least that’s what we assume. Not even a White Walker seems like it’d stand in the way of a Lannister, Stark, or Targaryen and his or her meal.)
To celebrate the premiere of season seven, we’ve created a video (above) that highlights some of the interesting cuisine that we’ve encountered in seasons’ past. From decadent desserts and entrees to no frills campfire delicacies (Ed Sheeran rabbit, anyone?), the food has certainly been unique. We’ve rounded up some of the most notable dishes below, along with recipes that you can try for yourself.
We envision lemon cakes to look more like lemon-filled Zebra Cakes, but a lemon cupcake with lemon-cream cheese frosting is the modern-day equivalent. And frankly, we’re pretty happy with that. Get the recipe.
You may be reluctant to try kidney pie, but what if we suggested a dish with tender steak and dark beer (also GOT appropriate)? Does that pie sound so terrible now? If not, get the recipe. If so, opt for a cherry or apple pie. Those are probably more up your alley.
Sure, its association with the show may send shudders down any man’s spine, but there’s no denying the deliciousness of pork sausage. If you’ve been searching for a homemade variety that you can cut, blend, and grind by hand (we know, we know), try this recipe for traditional bratwurst.
Oysters, Clams, and Cockles
Braavos has its fair share of seafood (just ask Arya) and Westeros has its fair share of wine. Combine the best of both worlds with this oyster dish featuring a prosecco mignonette. You won’t get drunk, but your breath will certainly rival that of a dragon. Get the recipe.
