31 game of thrones party ideas and recipes for food

What’s Up, Hungry People

This is it, folks. The long night approaches. What is dead may never die. Winter is here.

I’ve been cooking up a feast for kings over these last few weeks in anticipation of the season eight—the FINAL season—premiere. I don’t think my body is ready. I’ve had Game of Thrones playing on repeat the last few months. The fact we only get SIX new episodes and then it’s over FOREVER is devastating. But fortunately, I’ll have these recipes to get me through the long night… or at least until HBO releases that prequel show they’ve been going on about.

Here’s the master—or should I say MAESTER—list of ALL of my GoT themed recipes!

BE WARNED! THERE MAY BE MILD SPOILERS IN THIS POST IF YOU AREN’T CAUGHT UP TO THE MOST RECENT SEASON OF GAME OF THRONES!

2024 Update:

I’ve added even more Game of Thrones recipes since the original series ended in 2019 and I first compiled this post! There are now more than 31 recipes on this list! Here’s what I’ve made for the upcoming House of the Dragon premiere:

Rhaenyra’s Plum Cake

Feast like a Targaryen on this incredible plum cake. Rhaenyra’s favorite dessert, it’s topped with sweet, plump plums and pineapple jam for a sticky cake that is fit for a Queen.

READ THE RECIPE

Dornish Smoked Dragon Peppers

Throughout the book series, Dornish dragon peppers are mentioned being mixed into omelettes, topped on flatbreads – or stuffed with cheeses, like these. I smoked cream cheese and mixed it with yellow cheese and onions and then stuffed it into Hungarian hot peppers before smoking to perfection.

READ THE RECIPE

Sister’s Stew Trenchers

In the books, Sister’s Stew is noted for being incredibly tasty – especially when served in a trencher (or a bowl made from hollowed out, day-old bread). I can confirm: TRENCHERS ARE AMAZING.

READ THE RECIPE

Gendry’s Bowl of Brown

While living in Flea Bottom, Gendry and the other poor folk of King’s Landing dined on what was known as “bowls of brown,” which contained cat meat or pigeon meat and very rarely actual chicken or beef. A meager soup that was stewed for extremely long amounts of time—sometimes being added to and served, and added to and served again for years before the pot ran out.

READ THE RECIPE

Sansa’s Lemon Cakes

Lemon cakes are a popular dish eaten by the upper-class folk of Westeros, being especially popular in King’s Landing—they most notably are a favorite of Sansa Stark.

READ THE RECIPE

Qyburn’s Wildfire Guacamole

wildfire guacamole recipe

In his quest to recreate wildfire for the queen, I’d like to think Qyburn took some side quests of his own to concoct this spicy wildfire guac.

READ THE RECIPE

Night’s Watch Blackened Bread

night's watch blackened bread

One food that is easy to cook and requires few ingredients is beer bread—and if one thing is for certain, grain and dark beer are in no short supply in Westeros, given the fact that everyone seems to be drinking constantly.

READ THE RECIPE

The Lord Commander’s Buttered Turnips

lord commander's buttered turnips

Though food is now becoming scarce as winter approaches, root vegetables like turnips stand up against the cold and are versatile enough to be cooked in a variety of ways. These turnips are cooked until they are as soft as butter—which is why they are called as such. Actual butter sauce is the secret to the perfect buttered turnips—but that’s a tip straight from the Wildlings.

READ THE RECIPE

House Lannister Golden Roast

lannister roast beef

This golden roast is encrusted in horseradish and honey mustard glaze colored with turmeric and saffron threads—the most expensive spice not only in Westeros but the real world too.

READ THE RECIPE

Jon Snow’s Honeyed Chicken

jon snow honeyed chicken

After the battle for Winterfell, I like to think that Jon and his men supped on honeyed chicken—a sweet and slow-roasted chicken with crisp and sticky skin.

READ THE RECIPE

Old Nan’s Kidney Pie

old nan's kidney pie recipe

In season six of Game of Thrones, Jon and Sansa finally reunite at Winterfell. While they reconnect, they briefly reminisce about Old Nan’s kidney pies; “The one with the peas and the onions,” Jon remarks.

READ THE RECIPE

Jorah Mormonts’s Mutton Meatloaf

jorah's mutton

When Jorah later finds himself at the Wall with Jon Snow—about to cross over into the North to capture a wight to bring to King’s Landing as proof of the Night King and the threat against the land of the living—it’s almost certain Jorah and Jon’s men would have needed a meatloaf like this to sustain them through the long night.

READ THE RECIPE

Baratheon Boar Ribs

game of thrones boar ribs

Because of the relationship between House Stark and House Baratheon, I’d like to think this delicious rib feast was a variation of the whole boar that was roasted at the king’s funeral. “Apple in its mouth, skin seared crisp. Eat the bastard. Don’t care if you choke on him. Promise me, Ned.”

READ THE RECIPE

Benjen Stark’s Elk Meatballs & Shallot Gravy

benjen's meatballs

In the books, Benjen Stark is referred to as Coldhands and rides a giant elk. However, in the show, he rides in on a dark horse. When the elk dies in Dance with Dragons, it is blessed by Coldhands and then cooked and eaten by Bran and Meera. I imagine if they weren’t in such dire circumstances—they may have prepared the elk as meatballs for traveling efficiency.

READ THE RECIPE

Cersei’s Bitter Greens & Sour Apple Salad

cersei's salad

Cersei Lannister is the epitome of evil. As bitter as she is cunning, she will undoubtedly rule King’s Landing with a sadistic iron thumb. However, being from royalty, she’s not without her high standards not only for herself but her remaining family. Despite being the most hated woman in the kingdom, she would still demand the highest quality of food.

READ THE RECIPE

Cersei’s Sangria

cersei's sangria

Of all of the Lannisters, Cersei definitely has a taste for the finest wine in Westeros. And she isn’t particularly one to care if the people in her own city have enough to eat, as long as she has the freshest supply of fruit and wine in the country.

READ THE RECIPE

Hot Pie’s Direwolf Bread

dire wolf bread recipe

Hot Pie was hired by the innkeeper after baking the most delicious bread the keep had ever tasted. When we first leave Hot Pie, he hands Arya a loaf of bread baked in the shape of a direwolf.

READ THE RECIPE

Daenerys’ Dragon Eggs

game of thrones no bake dragon eggs

Fortunately for us peasants, no fire is required to harness the power of these dragon eggs—they’re made mostly from peanut butter, cocoa, and oats. I’d like to think my dragon eggs would have reunited the seven kingdoms under the power of deliciousness.

READ THE RECIPE

Ice Dragon Eggs

ice dragon eggs game of thrones

Ice Dragon eggs have nothing to do with fire. In fact, they have everything to do with ice instead. With no blood magic at my disposal, I had to create the dragon eggs myself like a peasant.

READ THE RECIPE

Ser Davos’ Iron Roasted Onions

ser davos onion recipe

Once a lowly smuggler of—yes, you guessed it—onions to the city of King’s Landing, Ser Davos Seaworth, a man of common folk heritage, finds himself not only as the hand to King Stannis Baratheon but eventually ends up as the right-hand man to the Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch and King of the North Jon Snow, after Stannis’ eventual demise.

READ THE RECIPE

Ayra’s Oysters, Clams & Cockles

ayra's oysters clams and cockles

I’d like to imagine in Braavos that a wide array of shellfish were sold in the market and that Arya would sell whatever she could get her hands on to get closer to “the Thin Man” to kill him. She probably sold a variety of goods to him to keep him happy while she plotted.

READ THE RECIPE

Pentoshi Mushroom Orzo

game of thrones orzo dish

Pentos is a free city that is highly involved in trade, so I’d like to think something similar to orzo was available in the city. This single pan dish is fantastic, definitely worth serving to a Khaleesi.

READ THE RECIPE

Joffery’s Pigeon Pie

joffery pigeon pie recipe

The pie itself is made with common ingredients found throughout Westeros, so it’s not surprising that pigeon pie is a staple across many of the different cultures found in the Seven Kingdoms. I didn’t use real pigeons in my pie, but I did use Cornish hen, which is the smaller, gamier tasting cousin to the common chicken.

READ THE RECIPE

The Hound’s Roasted Hen

the hounds hen recipe

Of all the brothers of House Clegane, the Hound is the one I’d most like to meet, and also avoid at all possible costs. While terrifying and willing to kill a man over a roasted bird, Sandor Clegane is by far one of my favorite characters from the world of Game of Thrones mostly because he’s a badass no matter what side he’s playing on.

READ THE RECIPE

The Red Woman’s Trifle

It’s inevitable that Melisandre will return to Westeros one last time—even if it’s just to die. These cake trifles are sweet enough to distract one from the rising of the dead north of the Wall.

READ THE RECIPE

Gregor Clegane’s Smashed Potatoes

the mountains smashed potatoes game of thrones

“The Mountain”—formerly known as Gregor Clegane, and the brother of “The Hound,” Sandor Clegane—is arguably one of the most terrifying characters to ever appear in Westeros…and his reputation for smashing things precedes him…

READ THE RECIPE

House Bolton Stuffed Squash

game of thrones acorn squash recipe

If Ramsay Snow had just tried this stuffed squash, Theon Greyjoy might still have his… sausage. Alas, there is no sausage in this recipe, though there are some pine nuts. For Reek’s sake, let’s continue.

READ THE RECIPE

Theon Greyjoy’s Flayed Sausage

theon's sausage game of thrones

For this recipe, we’ll be flaying off a bit of Theon for ourselves and one-upping Ramsay’s pork sausage with brats of our own.

READ THE RECIPE

Margaery Tyrell’s Apple & Brie Tarts with Honeycomb

margery's rose tarts game of thrones

These apple rose tarts are served with raw honeycomb on a bed of brie, some of the finest delicacies King’s Landing had to offer and honor the house Tyrell as well as Tommen’s short union with the kindest queen Westeros ever would have had.

READ THE RECIPE

Tywin Lannister’s Oxtail Stew

oxtail stew from game of thrones

In season two of Game of Thrones, Arya is taken captive by the Lannisters at Harrenhal, where she subsequently finds herself as a servant girl to none other than Tywin Lannister. Tywin doesn’t recognize Arya, leading him to show her kindness by offering up his meal of mutton stew—but a kindness only shown, mostly because he doesn’t like mutton.

READ THE RECIPE

The Night King’s Ice Cream with Lifeblood Syrup

white walker ice cream

What the White Walkers and the Night King actually want is STILL a huge mystery—we now know where they come from but not why they are coming. If they’ve heard whispers about how good this ice cream is… well, then I’ll have to apologize for the destruction of the land of the living ’cause this ice cream is AMAZING.

READ THE RECIPE

Winterfell Balsamic Roasted Mushrooms

winterfell mushroom recipe

I’d like to think vegetables like mushrooms and carrots were readily available—but as the inevitable cold approaches, fresher veggies like peppers would need to be used up as to not spoil the rest of their supply.

READ THE RECIPE

Winterfell Root Vegetables

winterfell root vegetables

Winterfell is ready for winter. As the snow and cold (and presumably the White Walkers) approach its stone walls, the folk who live there are bunkering down and hoarding all the food they can. This includes a large cellar full of roots and vegetables harvested during summer.

READ THE RECIPE

Tyrion’s Leg of Lamb

My OG Game of Thrones recipe—before I knew anything about anything. One might say I knew nothing, Jon Snow.

The long wait is finally over. Now my watch has ended.
