A Game of Thrones Cookbook? Five Television Shows That Need Cookbooks

You love Game of Thrones. You quote it obsessively. You have claimed the Iron Throne many times over in the GOT board game. You have even pre-ordered the Game of Thrones Lego set. You are the biggest fan in the world. Or are you? Have you yet enjoyed the opportunity to sit down to a traditional King's Landing feast of quails drowned in butter with a side of bowls of brown? Now you can!

The official Game of Thrones companion cookbook, A Feast of Ice and Fire, was recently released. After a tough day of LARPing, you can whip up any number of meals authentic to the various regions of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. The chefs and authors of the cookbook have even done you the service of finding modern-day substitutions for some of the more difficult-to-find ingredients like dragon eggs or live doves.

Or maybe you would prefer to slice yourself up a piece of "Last Rites Pecan Pie" with a nice tall glass of warm blood? If your tummy starts grumbling every time you watch Sookie and crew serve up a side of death, than you're going to need the soon-to-be-released True Blood cookbook, True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps. The book features "85 authentic bayou country recipes," loads of salacious introductions really written by the fake characters on the show and over 150 photos of food made to look scary.
