The Game of Food

My fans never cease to amaze me. Some of you are crazy. Some of you are wonderful. Most of you are crazily wonderful.

Like the two women in Boston who have started up a food blog they are calling the Inn at the Crossroads. Their mission appears to be to cook up both medieval and modern versions of all the dishes mentioned in A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE.



They're already off to a great start. You can read about their adventures and get all their recipes at the Inn: http://innatthecrossroads.wordpress.com/



I have cautioned them to skip the seagull when they get to it. The rat-on-a-stick is probably worth a pass as well, and I'd be wary about the bowls o' brown served in Flea Bottom. You never know what sorts of things go in them.



Anyway, do visit their blog and give them some encouragement. They have a lot of cooking to do. Why, Joffrey's wedding feast alone featured seventy-seven courses.

Oh, and I love their motto: In the Game of Food, you win, or you wash the dishes...

I know how odd this might sound, but I'm *really* glad you posted this. I must've hit a dictionary / encyclopedia more often for food in your series than for any other reason. Although I think I spy some utensils..!

Cooking with Ice and Fire
I've had "Cooking with Ice and Fire" on my list of things to do before I die for several years now.

I thought it would be great to partner with a professional (like Sarah Foster, or someone similar) and write a great cookbook, complete with appropriate illustrations or photography, and really set the mood.

Of course, we'd skip some dishes. Lamprey Pie sounds awful. ;)

Looks like they beat me to it.

This sounds great. Good luck!

That's such a neat idea. I love how they provide recipes too! Makes me hungry every time I look at it though..... XD

I've bookmarked it
because a lot of those things look really really good and well within my cooking skills to make. (Well, I also know how to do the medieval food process of figuring out recipes, I'm just lazy.I

Much love for sharing, Paula in Kansas City, MO.

Are they making Goat?
A nice shank of Vargo Hoat might be nice...

His head might make for a good table centerpiece.

Don't dismiss the seagull so quickly! Eating mutton birds is an old (but long faded, admittedly) tradition in southern Australia...
