I saw this question, and it made me think about a similar question regarding the A Song of Ice and Fire universe. Are there some resources (online or otherwise) that you can suggest regarding recipes for food items for the ASOIAF series?

Thank you!

I would just recommend the book and blog listed in System Down's answer, but you should know that some ingredients can be hard or impossible to find and you need substitutes. The book is pretty good about listing these. Aurochs, for example, are extinct, but you can use beef or other red meats instead. Grains of Paradise, as another example, are an uncommon herb in the US, but are similar to peppercorns. –  CodexArcanum Nov 26 '12 at 23:06

@CodexArcanum - I wonder what you can substitute for jellied dog brains and unborn puppies... –  System Down Nov 27 '12 at 18:33
    
@SystemDown: Curiously enough, today I got to the exact part in ASOS where the Astapori slaver tells the slave translator that he will feast Dany with jellied dog brains and a stew of unborn puppies. Reminded me instantly of your comment! –  JNat Nov 29 '12 at 22:44
    
@JNat - Maybe I should put spoiler markers on it lol –  System Down Nov 29 '12 at 22:48

There used to be a blog specifically for this called Cooking Ice and Fire, but unfortunately it's down.

However, there is an official cook book called Feast of Ice and Fire.

Nice one! I won't accept your answer just yet, to see if someone wants to share some sites they might know. –  JNat Nov 26 '12 at 23:00

The book you mention is actually based on a blog: innatthecrossroads.com The recipes are a mix of items from the blog and stuff exclusive to the book. –  CodexArcanum Nov 26 '12 at 23:02

There are two really good recipe books, one of which is already listed here (Feast of Ice and Fire). The other is the "Unofficial Game of Thrones Cookbook". They're both works of art and I enjoy comparing the recipes in both books. The Feast of Ice and Fire is endorsed by George R. R. Martin and is the better book in my opinion due to its inclusion of pictures. A Feast of Ice and Fire also typically has two versions of each recipe, one that's more historically accurate and one "modern" recipe that is perhaps better suited to the typical Western pallate. There have also been some issues with the Unofficial GoT Cookbook with plagiarism - some people say that the recipes are copied from other unofficial cookbooks and slapped with a new GoT-inspired title. For a diehard fan, you need both cookbooks, but if you're interested in just tasting a few recipes or getting a present for a GoT fan, the official Feast of Ice and Fire is the one to go with.
