All the Recipes You NEED For Your Game of Thrones Watch Party

By Bethany Ivie March 22, 2019

Jon Snow's watch may have ended, but ours certainly hasn't. The final season of everyone's favorite show kicks off April 14 and that means that it's time to gather your friends together for a Westeros-style viewing party. Honor your favorite characters (the old ones and the new) by making a few of these recipes.

1.The Boar that Killed Robert Baratheon

What better dish to celebrate the final season of Game of Thrones than the animal who (allegedly) started it all? Start your watch party off right, fulfill Robert Baratheon's dying wish and feast on the flesh of the swine that did him in. If wild boar isn't in season where you are (or, more likely, if you just can't find it) feel free to substitute one of its more domestic relatives, the common pig.  

"I want the funeral feast to be the biggest the kingdom ever saw, and I want everyone to taste the boar that got me."  King Robert Baratheon

2.Sansa's Favorite Lemon Cakes

You know who deserves something nice? Sansa Stark. Our favorite oldest sister has been through the wringer over the last seven seasons and it's time to honor her with a re-creation of her favorite fancy dessert: lemon cakes. The internet being what it is there are dozens of recipes for you to choose from, so I picked four that looked promising. 

As you take a bite into one of these sweet, tart confections, remember: when life gives you lemons, make lemon cakes. 


3.A Cheese Plate in Memory of Lady Olenna

RIP, my queen.

I will never stop missing Lady Olenna Tyrell. Never. I have no doubt that,if were she living, she could put the very Night King in his place and save the whole of Westeros with her razor-sharp wit. If you, like me, are still mourning the death of the Queen of Thorns, a cheese plate (served exactly when you want it) is the perfect homage.

4.Chicken a la Sandor 'The Hound' Cleagane

I understand that if any more words come pouring out your ... mouth, I'm gonna have to eat every f***ing chicken in this room Sandor 'The Hound' Clegane


Sandor Clegane is here to kick some butt and eat some chicken...and he's all out of chicken. 

5.The Old Bear's Spiced Wine

That lemon you used for your morning beer? THROW IT AWAY. It has no place in your spiced wine, according to the Old Bear. Image via Feast of Starlight.

When the Old Bear isn't drinking a refreshing morning beer, warm, spiced wine is in order. George R. R. Martin lays out a makeshift recipe of sorts in A Clash of Kings and the chefs of the internet have stepped in to give you actual measurements.

Note: though the Old Bear wouldn't approve, I've thrown in a delicious sangria recipe for anyone who wants to enjoy a spiced wine but lives south of the Wall. 

The Old Bear was particular about his hot spiced wine. So much cinnamon and so much nutmeg and so much honey, not a drop more. Raisins and nuts and dried berries, but no lemon, that was the rankest sort of southron heresy—which was queer, since he always took lemon in his morning beer. The drink must be hot to warm a man properly, the Lord Commander insisted, but the wine must never be allowed to come to a boil. Jon kept a careful eye on the kettle. George R.R. Martin, A Clash of Kings

6.Hot Pie's Direwolf Bread

Carb up for the emotional journey ahead courtesy of Hot Pie, the former baking-apprenticed-turned-traveling-companion to Arya Stark. Once recruited to join the Night’s watch, Hot Pie found a home at the Inn of the Crossroads baking delicious dire wolf-shaped bread. Like Sansa's lemon cakes, there are about a million different recipes floating around for Hot Pie’s lupine pastry, but I've selected a few that sounded good (and one cooked by Arya Stark herself, Maisie Williams). 

Did you know that the real Hot Pie, actor Ben Hawkeye, opened a bakery in London where he sells dire wolf-shaped bread? It's true! Hawkeye christened the business 'You Know Nothing, Jon Dough' and we all need to visit IMMEDIATELY.

7.The Heart of a Stallion

Want to go all in? Serve up the heart of one of these majestic wild stallions. Go on. Look one of them in the eye and do it. FOR THE PARTY.
If you can't find the heart of a stallion at your local farmer's market ... storebought is fine. 

Pay homage to your favorite Khaleesi with a Dothraki-inspired dish. Namely, a raw stallion's heart. According to actress Emilia Clark, even the prop version of this delicacy proved difficult to swallow, so we suggest going with a knock-off like strawberry, cherry or raspberry gelatin mold or even a red velvet cake. The only catch is that you must eat it in front of all your guests, standing on your coffee table. 


Binging with Babish also offers up a Dothraki Blood Pie for those who are interested in reeeeally going for authenticity (tune in about 4:17 if you want to skip straight to the gory deliciousness). 

8.More Wine

More wine. Cersei Lannister, probably

How much wine do you have? It's not enough. If you're going to make it through whatever fresh, emotional hell this show will, undoubtedly, put us through, it's time to make like Cersei and open another bottle. You can choose a bottle of the official Game of Thrones vintage below or (like me) opt for a cheaper, reliable alternative.

Note: Though Cersei doesn't seem to be a big ale drinker, many of us common folk are. Therefore, I've slipped in a list of sustainably brewed beers in the suggestions above that you can drink with a clear conscience. 

9.Jon Snow Cones (and Other Icy Treats)

His watch as ended and, honestly, he's pretty done with this whole "Game of Thrones" thing. Show your allegiance for Jon Snow as he tries to save Westeros from the evil ice zombies that threaten to consume it with any of these refreshing desserts. 

10.Hodor's Hodor

Hodor! Hodor, Hero of Westeros and My Heart

There's a big half-giant-sized hole in all of our hearts that nothing can fill. Honor Hodor, the stable boy turned hero who saves Bran Stark from the Night King's minions, by making any one of these drinks to numb the pain in your soul.
