Game of Thrones Season 7 is Upon Us, Celebrate with this GOT Inspired Meal
This weekend, Games of Thrones returns for its seventh season and super fans all over the world are gearing up for another series of action packed adventures from Sansa Stark, Jon Snow and the remaining crew that haven’t yet been killed off. In honour of the return of season 7, why not go that extra mile and cook a dinner that the GOT tyrants would be proud of. The weather is about as cold as it is at Castle Black at the moment (well, it feels that way anyway), so tuck into something that’ll keep icy white walkers at bay. Here’s our dream Game of Thrones Season 7 inspired meal.
Let’s get things started…
First things first, start with a good drink. What better to fend off those winter chills and celebrate the start of the season than to sip on a glass of Mulled Wine. It’s what the king would have wanted. *Goblet optional. To kick off the meal, and act as a accompaniment throughout, try this hearty Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Ale Beer Bread, it would be the perfect thing to pack up in your knapsack for a long trek done by horseback.
Mains Fit for a King (or Mad Queen)
Next up, a starter and main fit for a king, or maybe a mad queen instead. Soup is always a perfect beginning to a meal. We could see Cersei tucking into a bowl of this Venison and Barley Soup, possibly even throwing it at a servant or a member of her family. In between throwing back copious amounts wine and making questionable decisions that is. The meal should take a dramatic turn and the main event should be this Slow Roasted Shoulder of Lamb, ideal for tearing apart like a savage.
A Bit on the Side
Even the Lannisters and the Starks eat their veggies, we’re assuming, so this comforting and tasty Oven Roasted Cauliflower is perfect alongside the lamb. And of course, what is a showstopper meal without potatoes? It’s the basis of all peasant food, so in honour of that, show the humble spud some love with these Hasselback Potatoes with Lemon and Thyme. It’s a side dish any of the seven kingdoms would be proud to serve.
End a Feast in Style
For a sweet finish, and you’ll probably need it to get you over the sadness you’re feeling at the end of the episode (waiting a whole week is just cruel!), make the quintessential hug-in-a-bowl White Chocolate Malva Pudding or this Pecan and Pear Sticky Toffee Pudding – preferably cooked in a cast iron pot over an open flame, as you would if you were out on the hunt for white walkers.
