Now an UNofficial Game of Thrones Cookbook

3 days to go….

On the heels of The Hunger Games cookbook (and might I say again how weird that is) and the OFFICIAL Game of Thrones Cookbook (A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Companion Cookbook), we now have another cookbook based on , The Game of Thrones book and TV series, saddled with the unwieldy title The Unofficial Game of Thrones Cookbook: From Direwolf Ale to Auroch Stew- MoreThan 150 Recipies from Westeros and Beyond.

I'm guessing there's a recipe for lemon tarts in this...

New York Magazine’s Vulture blog has an interview with the author Alan Kistler.  He seems to have done his homework and really tried to make the recipes doable without totally losing sight of the food book origins.

I for one would love to see how to make Lannister IPA or Direwolf Ale.  Not so sure how I feel about the Khaleesi’s Heart:

We got a beef heart that’s cooked up with vegetables and red wine vinegar. You put it into a food processor with lots of vegetables, and then you put it on the grill.

When asked if he’s interested in doing other pop culture based cookbooks, Kistler replied

 There’s definitely Star Wars cookbooks out there, there have to be Star Trek cookbooks. But I did start thinking about Doctor Who, or superhero comics. Batman’s favorite tea is lapsang souchong, which is also mine. So immediately I thought, I could do the Justice League Cookbook — recipes for everyone from Wonder Woman to the Green Lantern, and Aqua Man’s Atlantean dishes. I think that would be hilarious.

I think it is indeed hilarious, but is there something there beyond novelty value?
