Inspired by Rachel Howden’s blog and in excitement for the finale, a couple friends and I decided to cook up some items for the season 4 finale of Game of Thrones. It is not comparable to any of Rachel’s feasts by far but there were only five of us and we were bursting at the seams afterwards. We didn’t really stick with a particular region’s cuisine… just what we thought some food was like back then. Not pictured were the sour beers and wine.
Cheese, fruit, and olive platter (figs are pricey!):
Roast chicken with fixings:
This was so time consuming to make and I’m still amazed that with around 3-4 lbs. of filling, the pie is still free standing. Parsnips weren’t in season so I substituted with rutabaga and potatoes.
I literally felt like I ate a Thanksgiving dinner. I was hurting and sleepy but satisfied. Even though I’ve read all the books thus far, I still get giddy like a chicken to see when they will kill off someone, what they choose to show in each episode, and all the great acting. I might have to re-read some of the books before next season. Try out some of the recipes from Inn at the Crossroads and show me how it turns out!
