Do you love Game of Thrones? Do you love bacon? Of course you do. You are awesome! Want to mix two of your favorite things and throw an amazing GOT season premiere party? Then keep reading. The idea of GOT having its own cuisine isn’t as crazy as it sounds, especially to those who have read the books. Take a look at all the mentions of food in the GOT novels. There’s also a GOT food blog, a GOT cookbook, and there’s even a GOT food truck.
When planning a GOT menu, think hearty, stick-to-your bones English, Irish and medieval fare. Recipes should incorporate ingredients that would appeal to peasants and kings alike; gamey meats like quail or venison, bacon and sausages, root vegetables, potatoes, figs, dates, cheeses, and hearty breads and flaky pastries. Add some mead, stout, hard cider or mulled wine and you’ve got yourself a feast fit for King Joffrey’s wedding!
