Fooding at Primavera Sound, Barcelona
As a marketing ploy for the show’s Australian DVD release, Warner Bros asked King to devise a special menu, to be served at Gastro Park next month. (Sydney Morning Herald)
1) Fallen Eyeball. The first snack really sets the gory tone of the menu. Liquid mozzarella eyeballs, finished by a make-up artist, are coated with cocoa butter and served on the earth’s soil, made from black olives and bread, with a white balsamic vinegar dressing.
Bleeding Stag - no Westeros celebration is complete without the slaughtering of an animal. Pierced with arrows, and designed to appear as though straight from the hunter. Delectable seared venison served with a dripping fake blood dressing, made from bonito, soy and ginger.
2) A soup of crushed skulls and raven feet! Crushed skulls crafted with a crusty garlic potato galette with raven feet fritters, made from black battered red piquillo pepper. All served with a Raven Broth made from quail and pigeon stock.
3) The King’s Feast arrives. A roasted chunk of wild pig served on Heart tree log, alongside roasted stone fruits of the Godswood forest.
4) Liquid gold poured over a dragon egg for dessert. Dragon eggs feature a sprayed chocolate shell with a liquid passionfruit and vanilla centre. Served on an edible earth of dark chocolate mud, white chocolate clay, gold nuggets, vanilla and buttermilk nitro rock and crumbed shortbread. All drizzled with a golden orange curd.
5) The cake of thorns
