There probably aren't many aspects of life in Westeros that we'd like to transfer to our modern reality, except that is, the food.
I have to admit, those massive Medieval banquets are slightly mouth watering, although if you're keen on staying on this mortal coil, you probably want to avoid the food at the weddings. In fact, just stay away from weddings altogether.
Luckily, Game of Thrones fans in London will soon get the chance to taste some of the delicacies of George R.R. Martin's imagined land of Ice and Fire. A new pop-up restaurant, punningly titled 'All Men Must Dine', is planned to open in London's Andaz hotel from February 13-15.
To get a spot at All Men Must Dine, you'll have to win the pleasure by answering a question on the competition's website, which is as follows: “Who is your favorite Game of Thrones character, and what would you cook to win their heart?” Winners will be selected via a panel of judges, although losers can also gain a ticket by challenging the winners to single combat.
I made that last bit up.
Let's just hope Charles Dance isn't there. He makes dinner parties kind of awkward...
The 'Wandering Chef' and the Grosvenor Mixologists will be presiding over the food and drink in what is being described as a 'one-of-a-kind banquet.' The banquet will be held three times over as many days.
So, what is on the menu? Well, we currently know of two courses, the delectable sounding 'The Lies of Tyrion Lanninster and his Proclaimed Innocence' and the saliva-gland-teasing 'Poached Veal Tongue with Beetroot, Horseradish and Oldtown Mustard.'
The event is being held to promote the imminent Blu-Ray release of Game of Thrones Season 4, as well as the commencement of Season 5 on April 12. You can check out the trailer for that below:
