Game of Thrones: The Taste

Rumors abounded of HBO preparing something very special, something that tied into the final link for the Maester’s Path, which had up to now covered four of the five senses. The last left? Taste.

According to HBO, Top Chef host and award-winning chef Tom Colicchio prepared special foods for five different regions covered in the series. Food trucks in NYC and L.A. would be going out, serving 300 portions of each dish over the course of two weeks, from the 28th to the 1st in NYC and the 4th to the 8th in L.A.. And how do you find them? You have to follow the Twitter or Facebook official pages to learn where the trucks will be each day.

Below are some additional details, an embed to a special HBO Buzz video with Chef Colicchio, as well as copies of the PDFs featuring his lemon cake(!) recipe as well as a sample menu.

  • Three hundred servings of free food inspired by the rich depictions of the banquets featured in the new series – such as roasted rabbit, spice roasted duck, and venison – will be dished out daily over two weeks (3/28 – 4/1 in NYC, 4/4 – 4/8 in LA) in locations around each city.
  • Supplies are very limited (300 per day), so it’s first come, first served.
  • The daily menu and Tom Colicchio’s personal recipe for the coveted Game of Thrones Lemon Cakes will be available on Making Game of Thrones.
