The Cookbook Game Of Thrones Fans Need To Know About

There is a surprisingly large sub-genre of cookbooks dedicated to teaching people how to prepare dishes directly from or inspired by their favorite shows and movies. "Star Wars: Galactic Baking: The Official Cookbook of Sweet and Savory Treats From Tatooine, Hoth, and Beyond" allows supporters of the Jedi and Sith alike to make delicious desserts from across the galaxy. A24 released the "Horror Caviar" cookbook for lovers of terrifying titles like "Midsommar" to whip up hair-raising delicacies.

Considering that an audience of 9.3 million eagerly watched the final episode of "Game of Thrones" (per Variety) and that the award-winning show has been regarded as having nearly as much of a pop culture impact as Marvel (via USA Today), it's no surprise that the hit series has a cookbook of its own. Especially since ardent followers of "Game of Thrones" often found themselves drooling over the food in the series. For example, the lemon cakes Sansa Stark nibbles on while discussing King Joffrey with Olenna and Margaery Tyrell (via YouTube). If Winter really is coming, a book that delves into the show's culinary side seems like a must-have for "Game of Thrones" fans preparing to feast through the long dark season — or at least a binge-watch party.

Learn to cook and dine like a Westerosi

"A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Game of Thrones Companion Cookbook" was written by food-savvy fans Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Sariann Lehrer. The recipes span across Westeros and have on-theme menu ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert.

If finally getting a chance to savor Sansa's lemon cakes and having the opportunity to munch down on the North's honeyed chicken doesn't already sound like a "Game of Thrones" lover's dream, the cookbook also features a few other authentic-to-the-series touches that are sure to delight fans. The recipes include noteworthy ingredients like dragon's eggs, though the writers also kindly offer substitutes if you don't have connections like Daenerys. Monroe-Cassel and Lehrer even have notes on the proper dining customs of each region sprinkled throughout the book.

To top it all off, the cookbook has "Game of Thrones" creator George R.R. Martin's stamp of approval. Not only did Martin write a foreword for "A Feast of Ice and Fire," but he also sells it on his website. Fans who have already gotten their hands on the book have been posting the faithfully recreated and delicious-looking "Game of Thrones" recipes under the #afeastoficeandfire tag on Instagram. A scroll through the homemade dishes is nearly as thrilling as Westerosi baker extraordinaire Hot Pie's surprise return cameo.
