"Game of Thrones" fans — the wait is ALMOST OVER!
And seeing as the series finale is upon us, we’re certainly hungry with excitement.
But, wait — hold the door!
Did you know that a "Game of Thrones" cookbook EXISTS?!
Bet you’re hungry for food now aren’t ya?
Well, you’re in luck, because we’ve got three recipes straight from the pages of A Feast of Ice & Fire: The Official Companion Cookbook right here!
And please, chew with your mouths closed.
Medieval Beef and Bacon Pie
If you’re a true meateater, (like, say, King Robert Baratheon, may he rest in peace) this pie is for you! It’s filled with thick-cut bacon, juicy chunks of beef and lots of sweet fruits like raisins, dates and prunes. The fruit flavor sweetens everything up, giving you an irresistibly rich meat pie.
Elizabethan Lemon Cakes
Wickedly tart, just like Cersei Lannister. We imagine this is what she would have served for a finale-watching party.
This beautiful salad is nothing short of a masterpiece and if you can forage for some edible flowers (like the smallfolk from the Riverlands during wartimes), you can make it all the more authentic.

Oh, and if you're thirsty, too, we just happen to have "Game of Thrones"-inspired cocktails!
