The Unofficial Game of Thrones Cookbook-Review

In honor of the season 2 premier of Game of Thrones my friend bought this cookbook so we tried a few recipes tonight. Turns out there is also a review out in Entertainment Weekly!! EW Article   Here is the goodreads description of the book:
Eat like a Lannister. Brew spirits to warm you in the coming winter. Treat guests to exotic sweets and alchemy-inspired cocktails. With this collection of hearty meals inspired by George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, it's all possible Every dish finds its roots in the pages that brought Westeros to life, including: Arbor Red Wine--the finest spirit in the Seven Kingdoms, The House of Stark's Venison, Apple, Cheddar Plaits--savory meat pies, fit for any Warden of the NorthThe Imp's Wild Strawberry Fool--a dessert light enough to make Tyrion smileWilding Grilled Pork Chops with Stir-Grilled Apples--the meal of choice at Craster's KeepTears of Lys--the concoction of choice for bartenders and assassins alike Feast your imagination on entrees, desserts, snacks, and drinks that will make your fantasies a reality

This book is fun. All kinds of recipes with a variety of foods to use. Such as pigeons, eel, goat, rabbit, anything you would expect to find in Game of Thrones. Though after my friend bought this book I found out that there is a official book game out with an intro by George RR Martin called A Feast of Ice and Fire .  Who knew?

So we made two recipes out of the unofficial cookbook.  One was ribs and one was an apple pie type recipe.  My friend took the book or I would know the apple pit recipe name.    The rib recipe you can see below

Here is what the inside of the book looks like:

I own the Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook but have never tried any of those recipes and after reading this cook book I might just have to do that (that cookbook was free on my Nook from Barnes and Noble).  And I hear there is an unofficial Hunger Games cookbook too!! 

I am giving this book four kitties!  Only because some of the ingredients are going to be hard to find!!
