All men must dine: HBO offers ‘Game of Thrones’-themed banquets in London
HBO hosts banquets in London over the Valentine’s Day weekend to mark the release of season four on DVD
Watching Game of Thrones can a tough task if you’re hungry – if watching painful deaths doesn’t put you off your food, there are mouthwatering feasts to sit through.
Now HBO has teamed up with caterers The Wandering Chef to create a Game of Thrones-themed pop-up restaurant in London.
Three “All Men Must Dine” banquets will take place from 13 to 15 February at the Andaz hotel in Liverpool Street.
HBO said: “Throughout the evening, guests will sample the finest delicacies Westeros has to offer over multiple courses, accompanied by a carefully selected drinks menu of cocktails fit for a King.”
It revealed that one dish on offer would be “The Lies of Tyrion Lannister and his Proclaimed Innocence”, or poached veal tongue with beetroot, horseradish and Oldtown Mustard”.
Fans of the show can go to the HBO website to win a chance to take part in the event.
It is taking place to promote the release of Game of Thrones season four on DVD and Blu-ray; season five starts on Sky Atlantic on 13 April.
Monkey hopes the fare is more wholesome than in the series – just look at King Joffrey.
