Looking to bring a little fiction to the dinner table? These four blogs have you covered:

Food Through The Pages

Chelsea Monroe-Cassel cooked her way through Game of Thrones, not to mention books by Scott Lynch (Lies of Locke Lamora), Steven Brust (the Vlad Taltos series), and Suzanne Collins (The Hunger Games). Her gorgeous photos and progress notes make it possible to reproduce Neil Gaiman’s Button Cookies (Coraline) and Laura Moon’s Chili (American Gods), and many more dishes.

The Inn at the Crossroads

Dedicated to food from George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones. Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Sariann Lehrer have recreated meals from all across Westeros. Their recipe book, A Feast of Ice and Fire, comes with an introduction by GRRM himself.

Bryton Taylor’s Food and Literature Blog

Offerings include fairy tales (like Snow White), food from The Hobbit, and Willie Wonka meals, both homemade and professionally prepared.

Rollings Reliable

Olivia Youngers has been posting great SciFriday recipes, including food related to Fringe, Seanan McGuire’s Deadline, and Futurama.

 

GeekMom reviewed A Feast of Ice and Fire in May 2012.
