A medieval recipe from The Inn At The Crossroad
From the About page on “The Inn At The Crossroad”: In 2012 our hard work was rewarded with the delightful publication of the Official Game of Thrones Cookbook. Since then, I have continued to explore Westerosi dishes and medieval recipes, updating and improving the blog as I go. For me, it has become a way of life, the kitchen table laden with pork pie, hot spiced wine, lemoncakes, and so many more enticing edibles.
The journey continues, so loosen your belts, sharpen your knives, and set out for the kitchens of Westeros. Check out Game of Brews for the companion beverages to these foods, and follow the Inn on Twitter and Facebook for all the very latest in what I’m cooking, brewing, or planning, and be sure to visit often!
