Game of Thrones Potluck: Across the Narrow Sea

We picked Across the Narrow Sea as our second Game of Thrones potluck. I was super impressed with the menu we came up with – it was fresh and exotic and delicious!

Across the Narrow Sea – The Menu

Thanks to all the dear friends who contributed!

Appetizers: Fruit, olives, manchego drizzled with honey, toasted pita bread,
yogurt honey tahini harissa dip

(No recipe, except maybe for the harissa, so I’ll add that later).

Harira – Moroccan Chickpea Soup
(Everyone loved it, and I can’t believe I forgot to snap a picture of this!).

Iced Green Minty Drink
(From A Feast of Ice and Fire)

Dolmades with Avgolemono
(Recipe coming)

Greek Salad
(Just romaine, red onions, tomatoes, feta and kalamata olives, but I made a nice dressing with lemons, honey, garlic, parsley, mint, dill and olive oil)

Pomegranate Goat
(Inspired by Goat with Firepods and Sweetgrass but I irreverently changed pretty much everything, my version of recipe coming)

Sweet and Spicy Drumsticks
(From Inn at the Crossroads)

Magister Illyrio’s Dubious Mushrooms
(From Inn at the Crossroads)

Olive Oil Cake with Citrus Fruit and Yogurt
(Inspired by Olive Oil and Rosemary Cake, my recipe coming)

apps
Appetizer spread.

honeydew-mint
Iced Green Minty Drink (delicious! Honeydew, mint and lime. Non-preggos added vodka. Not the prettiest snap because I couldn’t wait to take a sip.)

dolmades
Glorious dolmades. So lemony!

greek-salad
Greek Salad. Nothing special, just something fresh and green.

pomegranate-goat
Pomegranate goat turned out beautiful – very rich, sweet and spicy.

sweet-and-spicy-chicken
Yummy chicken.

mushrooms
Dubious mushrooms.

olive-oil-cake
Citrusy olive oil cake. I love this cake, literally the easiest and most versatile cake I’ve ever made.

Some of the recipes came from or were inspired by Inn at the Crossroads blog or A Feast of Ice and Fire cookbook, and the rest have Greek or North African influence. I dressed my daughter up Sindhi style (which we will just pretend is Dothraki style) and for our listening pleasure played my Niyaz Pandora station.

Check out our first potluck, Winterfell.
