Sansa’s Lemon Cakes
Sansa’s Lemon Cakes by The Starving Chef
The new lady of Winterfell, Sansa Stark, has had her share of misfortunes. Her father Lord Eddard Stark of Winterfell and her direwolf Lady were executed at the bequest of her fiancé King Joffrey and her mother and brother are murdered during The Red Wedding. One of the only things that continually brings her happiness is indulging in lemon cakes, which she has access to while being kept at King’s Landing. These tangy sweet treats incorporating lemon, cream and buttermilk can be enjoyed as one large cake or made into individual cupcakes.
Game of Thrones Frey Pie
Game of Thrones Frey Pie by Baking Mischief
In response to Walder Frey’s murderous attacks on her mother and brother at The Red Wedding, Arya chooses to serve him up a slice of Frey’s Pie — made out of his sons Black Walder and Lothar’s body parts, before revealing herself and slitting his throat. Our version is probably much more appealing, featuring ground pork, bacon, mushrooms and chicken broth. It’s a perfect main course for any Game of Thrones feast.
House Targaryen Dragon Eggs
House Targaryen Dragon Eggs by One Green Planet
The series premiere of Game of Thrones set the stage for Daenerys to become the Mother of Dragons when she was gifted three petrified rare dragon eggs as a wedding present when she married Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo. Fans of the Queen of the Dothrakis and the Unsullied will enjoy creating and serving these tasty Game of Thrones inspired Dragon Eggs with Medjool dates, coconut, cocoa, maple syrup, and rum filling and sliced almonds to replicate the scales on the eggs of Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion.
Game of Thrones Boozy Red Wedding Cake
Game of Thrones Boozy Red Wedding Cake by Morsels and Moonshine
Celebrate the most talked about episode of the Game of Thrones series with this boozy red wedding cake. Combining plenty of blood-red beet juice and spiced rum, this delicious decadent dessert exemplifies the penultimate season three episode where the Freys slaughter the Starks and their soldiers during the wedding celebration feast of Edmure Tully and Roslin Frey.
Clegane’s Roasted Hen
Clegane’s Roasted Hen by The Starving Chef
Celebrate your accomplishments in Game of Thrones style by making Sandor Clegone’s Roasted Hen. This recipe changes out the chicken for Cornish game hen, but you can also use chicken in the recipe that incorporates butter, garlic, and rosemary into one of the Hounds favorite post-battle foods.
Pigeon Pie From King’s Landing
Pigeon Pie From King’s Landing by The Starving Chef
Similar to the wedding feast of King Joffrey Baratheon and Margaery Tyrell, pigeon pie is both savory and sweet. In the Game of Thrones series, this huge pie was traditionally served at weddings of nobility and often made with the inside of the pie hollowed out and filled with live pigeons. No need to hunt down your own pigeons for this recipe, it uses Cornish game hens for the main protein and adds potatoes, carrots, and onions for a comforting and filling meal.
Mulled Wine by Tidy Mom
Wine can almost be considered a main character on Game of Thrones. It’s got plenty of complexity in its use both as a celebratory beverage and as a poisonous vehicle for murder. Tyrion uses it in a drinking game in season one and later to get through his wedding to Sansa Stark; Joffrey Baratheon sips a poisoned cup of it on his wedding day and the Queen of Thorns Lady Olenna is forced to drink poisoned wine by Jaime Lannister. Here’s a recipe for a non-lethal libation of delicious mulled wine with orange, lemon, lime, and spices.
Tyroshi Honeyfingers by Epicurious
You don’t have to travel all the way to Tyroshi to sample some of their sweet honeyfingers made with flour, pine nuts, cinnamon, and honey. These fried treats are a favorite of Daenerys Targaryen and will be a hit at any Game of Thrones party.
Winterfell Root Vegetables
Winterfell Root Vegetables by The Starving Chef
During the long cold winters in Winterfell, the House of Stark and their followers would probably be cooking up a large pile of root vegetables to provide sustenance while hiding from the incoming White Walkers. This hearty side dish includes parsnips, carrots, onions, leeks, and radishes and is quick and easy to prepare.
Gendry’s Bowl O’ Brown
Gendry’s Bowl O’ Brown by The Starving Chef
The star dish of Game of Thrones’ poorest slum, Flea Bottom, is a stew that has been percolating for years featuring meat of a questionable origin and named “bowl o’ brown.” While the royalty of Kings Landing dined on lemon cakes and roasted fowl, the main ingredient of this dish was probably cat or pigeon meat. This recipe greatly improves on the ingredients, using chunks of beef, potatoes, white wine, carrots, celery and herbs.
