Food from Fantasy

If you’ve read A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin, then you’ve seen many descriptions of food.  He always seems to describe every meal they eat.  But is it really important to know what the characters are eating?

Food is a major part of culture.  There are foods that people traditionally eat, as well as avoid.  Feasts are also a big part of culture.  They’re times when people gather, eat, drink, and talk.  Many things can happen during a feast: strengthening alliances, arguments, and forging new links.  They can be very important.

But what is this food really like?  Have you ever wanted to try cooking food you’ve seen in fantasy (and even science fiction)?  What we need are recipes.

If you have tried cooking something from fantasy or you know of any sources of recipes, share it in the comments below.
