LOS ANGELES, CA, August 29, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Along with sex and gore, Game of Thrones revolves around food. We could be forgiven for thinking it is in fact one of the main characters in the TV hit series, rather than simply being a byline of the script itself. The food featured not only serves to hold our interest in how the people of Seven Kingdoms live and function in their daily lives, capturing our attention at the amazing feast and banquets they call mealtimes but, it also gives an indication of where the characters are from, their social status, and simplification into the who, where, what, when and why of the amazing characters we have come to love or hate.
Elaborate feasts and mouth-watering descriptions may certainly have you wishing you could eat this way too. The truth is, you can! And it can be healthy too. When you think about it, all the food and meals featured are basic, healthy, natural foods. Vegetables, fruits, meat, poultry, grains, fish - there is no processed food in Seven Kingdoms!
Eating delicious, nutritious home-cooked meals just requires a bit of planning. The cooking is the easy part, but you will first need to determine what ingredients are needed and then you will need to go to the supermarket to buy them - gone are the days of hunting in the forest for your evening meal! There are many apps available to help you plan your meal times, making your life much easier.
Below, we put together a list of our favourite recipes inspired by Game of Thrones. Think meat, chicken, root vegetables, breads, and lemon cake (of course!). So next Sunday night for your GoT viewing pleasure, enjoy one (or more) of these tasty recipes and feel as if you are part of the action. Even better, invite some friends over. And don't forget your pint of ale or your goblet of wine!
Who doesn't want a direwolf? We all know the special bond the Stark children have with their pet direwolves. Loyal to their masters while also fighting off assassins, these wild animals seem to be the perfect friend to have. However, you are probably better off sticking with this direwolf-shaped beer-infused bread, it's much easier to tame!
Braised Lamb Shanks and Vegetable Puree
The prestigious Stark family inspired this meal choice. They are Northerners where the weather is cold, and so they will probably appreciate a warm, hearty meal. These braised lamb shanks are something a bit more special than an ordinary stew and so will be right up their alley.
Pigeon Pie (Well, Chicken)
Pigeon Pie is the traditional pie served at wedding feasts in Seven Kingdoms. Smaller pies are also eaten for regular meals by the wealthier society who can afford them. However, you don't have to worry about any live pigeons flying out of this pie!
The Hound's Chicken
Sandor Clegane, nicknamed The Hound, loves chicken! We are sure this lemon-seasoned chicken served with root veggies is one chicken he will die for.
Spicy Pepper Salad
In Dorne, food is considered the ultimate aphrodisiac. Dorne is also well-known for its exotic food and spicy dragon peppers. Heat your blood with this easy-to-make spicy pepper salad!
Wild Rice Salad
You don't have to live Beyond the Wall to enjoy this wild rice salad. Tasty and super quick to make, this is the perfect side to grilled meat or fish.
Sansa Stark's Lemon Cake
No Game of Throne's meal would be complete without Sansa Stark's favourite cake. We are certain these lemon and poppyseed cupcakes will leave Sansa Stark's mouth watering.
Food is what fuels us and gives us strength. It is important to make sure we incorporate the five food groups in our diet to get the nutrients we need to function. Fresh, home-cooked meals are the best way to staying healthy. Healthy food does not have to be boring food! We hope these Game of Thrones inspired recipes are the inspiration you need to get cooking!
