Winter is here.
Finally after months (and months) of waiting, Game of Thrones has finally returned to our screens. If you’re a fan or not, you’ve probably heard everyone talking about the latest episode at work, or on the train! The show promises everything we dream about - Jon Snow, mouth-watering medieval meals, a great battle for the throne - and of course, more Jon Snow…ahem….
Before we take our seats on the couch tonight, we thought we’d share a few food facts of what are favourite characters are most likely to indulge on - dependent on their region - whether that’s enjoying a full feast at Winterfell, or dining Alfresco in the King’s Landing Sun...
Home to the Night’s Watch, The 700ft Wall of ice is home to the North’s Men, watching from afar for anyone trying to cross - including their enemies and dangers like the white walkers.. These men brave freezing temperatures daily - eating only as and when they can. A general food choice for these would be meats such as Pork, Cod, Venison and pickled foods- and to snack they would probably enjoy foods such as berries and oats with lots of warm wine to keep snug while on guard.
With a mixture of both rich and poor, the diets in King’s Landing can vary massively. The wealthy will dine alfresco overlooking the beautiful landscaped surroundings indulging in foods, that include swan, boar, cakes, tarts and fruits, leaving the poor to find scramble the streets looking for something to eat such as dubious brown - a selection of meat and veg - a bit like a modern day version of stew!
The Iron Islands
Surrounded by sea, those who live on the Iron Islands can indulge in meats that are found in the water - allowing them to have a wide selection of dishes including fish, crabs and meats that are easily accompanied by bread leaving them with all the energy they need to tackle the waves.
Join us next week when we will sample more dishes from Westeros and beyond!
