To say Game of Thrones fans are obsessed is an understatement, and when it comes to food, the obsession goes beyond all 7 kingdoms. While there’s a website and a cookbook dedicated to GoT recipes, one chef has created a 15-course tasting menu based on George R.R. Martin’s grand opus.
At Elizabeth restaurant in Chicago, chef Iliana Regan is known for her foraging skills and creating seasonal menus. Just take a look at the photos on the restaurant’s website; all the food is gorgeous and worthy of any banquet table where you might slaughter your family members. I mean, the food is beautiful and inspired…
Chef Regan is a geek chef after my own heart. While reading the A Song of Ice and Fire series, she made note of all the pages that mentioned food and went back to reference and create her menu. Eater.com has a video showcasing the meal preparation and the food is so bright and beautiful, it practically jumps off the plate through the gorgeous presentation. Here’s a look at the full tasting menu:
Bok choy and amaranth
Crisp bread and pickles
Peas and asparagus
Snails with green garlic
Scallop and fermented rhubarb
Pickled sardines and salted beef
Mussels, clams, spring onions, and watercress
Beet root and fermented milk
Yogurt and poppyseed
Lemon curd and graham cracker
Buckwheat and raw cow’s milk
Elizabeth restaurant’s Instagram photos show that diners have come to dine dressed in full Game of Thrones regalia, easily combining elegant cosplay with fine dining. If the idea of a Westeros-themed dinner piques your fancy, tickets are still available and the special menu is being offered until May 16, 2015.
