A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Game of Thrones Companion Cookbook Cover Image
ISBN: 9780345534491
Availability: Not Available In-Store - Usually Ships from Warehouse in 1-5 Days
Published: Bantam - May 29th, 2012

Need some cooking inspiration? Look no further than A Feast of Ice and Fire. This cookbook was drawn right from the pages of A Song of Ice and Fire, thanks to the meticulous research of the authors. It is George R.R. Martin approved and is broken up into sections and organized by the different lands of Westeros. Whether you have a King's Landing appetite or perhaps a hankering for something from The Wall, A Feast of Ice and Fire has you covered. Many of the recipes come in two different formats: medieval preparation (for the more daring cooks) and modern preparation (for those of us who may be a little more timid), making this one of the more extensive and well put together cookbooks I've come across in a while. Be sure to give this to the Game of Thrones fan in your life who already has everything or add it to your collection! --Heather H.

With passion, drive, and ingenuity, food trucks are forging ahead to create the new heart of American cuisine. It’s not just the food that makes this book amazing, but seeing the faces of people who work hard for something they care for so deeply. These recipes taste genuine — simple, heartfelt food that started in a family kitchen. In the past I cooked one way — complicated and over the top, until I came across Jacques Pepin who made me realize the true way to cook. A few perfect ingredients that bring out huge flavor. That is what food trucks embody. You will find so many recipes that you can use every day. Not only have these found their way into my rotation, but have helped me use my own voice in the food I make. This book will do more than just show you delicious recipes from the variety of communities that make up America. It will inspire you to get out there and find the hidden gems just around the corner, and not just the ones on four wheels. - Drew

Published: Knopf - October 30th, 2012

I don't read many blogs, but I never miss this one when it comes into my inbox. Now there is a cookbook with many of the recipes and the gorgeous pictures that I have come to love from Deb Perelman's blog. For example, a recipe for Roasted Pear and Chocolate Chunk Scones. Who can resist trying these? Perelman is not a chef, she's a mom who cooks in a tiny Manhattan kitchen. Here is what she said she wanted to create with her cookbook: "approachable recipes made with accessible ingredients that exceed your expectations." My favorite fall cookbook choice. - Gayle

In 2001, after a long career as a suit behind a desk, Ken Forkish opened Ken’s Artisan Bakery in Portland, Oregon, with nothing more than passion and a dream of opening a bakery steeped in the French Tradition. More than ten years later, we get to peer into his box of secrets and unleash his knowledge of artisan bread and pizza crust. Ken’s baking method was designed for the home cook, and the results are unbelievable. He not only guides you through the process of artisan bread making, but brings you to really understand it as well. This way when something in the process needs adjusting you are able to react with experience. The word companion comes from the Latin com meaning "with," and panis meaning "bread.” Flour Water Salt Yeast gives you the skill to take this companion with you for the rest of your life. - Drew

I’m a foodie and love books that talk about food lore, ingredients, and exotic tastes. I also read memoirs. This book combines all of these elements in a remarkable way. At the age of three, Kim Sunée was abandoned on a bench in a marketplace in Seoul, South Korea. A young GI and his wife brought her to the States, and she grew up in New Orleans amongst an extended family that included maternal grandparents who taught her how to cook. She never felt at home in her adopted country and, while still in her teens, moved to France where she continued cooking lessons under master chefs. This is her story, complete with recipes and anecdotes, of finding her rightful place in the world, and using food to lead her home. - Gayle

Published: Chronicle Books - October 10th, 2012

The morning after my brother's wedding, I had the best sandwich of my life. I immediately asked who was catering the brunch, and found out it was the Williamsburg restaurant Saltie. Since then, I have made Saltie a must-visit on any trip to New York, and now my sister-in-law works there! I am so excited to finally get to try and make Saltie's original sandwiches, pastries, homemade foccacia and egg bowls at home. This cookbook is worth its weight in gold (or maybe truffles)! - Sarah B.
