Title: A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Cooking Companion
Authors: Chelsea Monroe-Cassel & Sariann Lehrer
Genre: cookbook, books on TV
I did a Game of Thrones program last night at my library and I had checked out this book to get ideas on what kind of food to serve. This cookbook features more meal-type food and I was looking for finger foods to serve. I eventually found some cute Game of Thrones-themed snacks on Pinterest, but this fan cookbook was still interesting to read. This cookbook was the creation and brainchild of two women who have been fans of the Game of Thrones series since it debuted in 1996. They created a blog (Inn at the Crossroads)solely devoted to the food and dishes mentioned in the books. In this cookbook they divided dishes by regions, found a medieval version of a dish and modern version of the same dish. There are recipes here that can enjoyed by all cooking skill levels and would make wonderful dishes at a Games of Thrones viewing party and could be used to hold over a GoT fanatic until the next show season or book comes out (whichever comes first).
