5.0 out of 5 stars Well Researched Recipes!, April 10, 2012
This review is from: The Unofficial Game of Thrones Cookbook: From Direwolf Ale to Auroch Stew - More Than 150 Recipes from Westeros and Beyond (Unofficial Cookbook) (Hardcover)
This book is the perfect companion to my love of themed dinner parties! Talk about the best way to get ready for the new season! The dishes are fun, clever and delicious.
Also, as a huge fan of the books, I am so happy to see that someone really did the RESEARCH to come up with these dishes instead of just picking something that sounded kitschy. I don't agree with the comments that these seem to be "stock recipes"...if you really look at them you can immediately see the attention to detail down to the simplest of passing references in the books!
Fantastic book and wonderful addition to my kitchen!

Just so you know- these recipes are not "researched." They come from a database maintained by Adams Media- a company that pumps out fictional food cookbooks with no photographs as purely commercial ventures. Many of the recipes appear in identical form and wording in other Adams Media fictional food cookbooks. Root Soup, for example, is exactly the same in both the unofficial GOT cookbook, and the unofficial Hunger Games cookbook, also by Adams Media. For a GOT cookbook that is genuinely a labor of love, with well-researched recipes, all illustrated with photographs, checkout the official cookbook, "A Feast of Ice and Fire."
