9am-7pm: The rebroadcast of all of Season 3
5pm: The beginning of The FEAST! Bring an item(or two)!
9pm: season-premiere episode of Season 4!
To celebrate the premiere or finale of Season 4 of Game of Thrones, we will have a FEAST as gluttonous and decadent as only King Robert would!
Smoked turkey leg
Fresh loaf of rosemary bread
Homemade sweet bread
Corn on the cob
Bunches of grapes
Mugs of mead/ale
Pitcher of milk
Grilled fish(with the head still on?)
Berries and cream
Nuts and nutcracker
Fresh peaches, apples, oranges
Blocks of cheese and course bread
Some sort of symbolic nod to a pig with apple in it's mouth
Vegetarian options are also welcome, and will be added.
I also now have the official Game of Thrones Cookbook, and will be adding more ideas. If anyone wants some ideas out of the cookbook, let me know!
I asked a British friend of mine for food-ideas for a medieval meal for a gluttonous king, and he told me to Google pictures of Henry the 8th, and look for whatever he was stuffing himself with. :P
Depending on the weather, this could be held outdoors with a giant wood table(still needed), and cut logs as chairs(I have alot). I have nice table-cloths, but nothing royal/fancy looking.
Ideally I would love to make a Game of Thrones throne for the head of the table:
Wood/pewter plates would be nice, if anyone has some.
Bring a rough/medieval knife/fork/spoon to eat with. Big, gluttonous fork if you want. Eat with your hands if you want. Anyone caught using traditional utensils might have food thrown at them. :P
Bring your favorite big mug/glass that might fit with the mood.
I'll have a firepit for atmosphere.
Dress any way you want, for medieval time or not.
More details to come as date becomes known for premiere or finale.
