Game of Thrones Season 5 Premiere Feast

I moved across the country this year away from everyone I watch the show with, but I was back visiting for the premiere last night so my sister and I made a big feast for 9 people 🙂 It was a ton of fun!

This feast wasn’t themed as some of the past ones were. We made food that could be found around different places in Westeros/Essos. Some of the recipes and inspiration came from the Feast of Ice and Fire Cookbook as many of the past feasts. Most of the food didn’t follow any particular recipe.

    You can’t just sandwich iguana in the middle of everything without telling us more!

    As always, everything looks supremely delicious!
