Cool Food Blog

If you’re a fan of Game of Thrones, then you may like the Inn at the Crossroads, the official Game of Thrones food blog.  The authors are also authors of A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Game of Thrones Companion Cookbook.  I don’t read the books or watch the series, but I like the history on Medieval cuisine.  They have a listing of recipes that they cannot make, mostly because eating those animals is illegal.  It’s an interesting list, including unborn puppies and honeyed dormice.  Who could eat unborn puppies?  Who could eat honeyed dormice, for that matter?
