You know what’s even better than watching Game of Thrones? Watching Game of Thrones while eating a feast of delicious food straight from Westeros.

Back in 2012, Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Sariann Lehrer released A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Game of Thrones Companion Cookbook. Monroe-Cassel and Lehrer co-run a food blog called The Inn at the Crossroads dedicated to recreating the food from George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, along with food from stuff like The Elder Scrolls and World of Warcraft.

With A Feast of Ice and Fire, they brought those sumptuous dishes to the world at large. That cookbook was filled with recipes from Martin’s novels; but since it came out the same year that Game of Thrones aired its first season, it didn’t feature anything from the television show.

But now, Monroe-Cassel is back with the follow-up: The Official Game of Thrones Cookbook: Recipes from King’s Landing to the Dothraki Sea. Like A Feast of Ice and Fire, this book will feature an introduction from George R.R. Martin and has recipes from places like King’s Landing, Dorne, the Dothraki Sea, Winterfell and more.

Here’s the official back-of-book description:

"For those who long to dine with the Dragonlords of Old Valyria or quaff a cup of mead with King Robert I, The Official Game of Thrones Cookbook unlocks the vast culinary world of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire. Presented as the in-world manuscript of a Citadel maester, these eighty recipes take the reader on a delectable journey throughout the Seven Kingdoms, across the Narrow Sea, and back into the annals of history.The book is created by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel, who tends the popular “Inn at the Crossroads” food blog and co-authored A Feast of Ice and Fire. Her Maester Alton is curious, food-obsessed, and loves the fare of the highborn and small folk alike. His recipes evoke the world’s regions, history, and stories in a charming and knowledgeable voice.The eight chapters offer recipes for every meal of the day, including Dothraki Blood Pie, Crown Roast of Boar’s Ribs, Dornish Creamcakes, Redwyne Roasted Grapes, Seaweed Ship’s Biscuits, Barley Griddle Cakes, Winter Town Wassail. Recipes are illustrated by mouthwatering food photography and stunning woodcut illustrations. A resource section suggests menus by region, so you can hold a feast in Riverlands, The Wall, or Braavos. Complete with an introduction by George R. R. Martin, The Official Game of Thrones Cookbook transports you to a much-loved world where trestle tables groan with sumptuous feasts, goblets overflow with mead, and winter is always coming."

From the sounds of things, The Official Game of Thrones Cookbook will follow in the footsteps of Martin’s A World of Ice and Fire, with in-world narration by a maester who’s recording these recipes. That’s a fun new take: A Feast of Ice and Fire was more of a straight cookbook, so this adds a bit of playfulness into the mix while you’re cooking.

As someone who’s been using recipes from A Feast of Ice and Fire for years, one other thing that really stands out about this new cookbook is that it features recipes from some places which didn’t make the cut in the last one, like the Dothraki Sea and Old Valyria. It’s exciting to think that next year we’ll have 80 brand new recipes from Westeros and Essos to try!

The Official Game of Thrones Cookbook: Recipes from King’s Landing to the Dothraki Sea releases on May 7, 2024.
