​If you're a fan of Game of Thrones, the HBO medieval television drama based on author George R. R. Martin's best-selling fantasy novels, but find yourself getting hungry at the recipes mentioned in the series, two blogs might be your food foray into the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.

​The first, Inn at the Crossroads, was founded and written by two fans who cook dishes from the series. With over 100 recipes posted -- some keeping true to the series, some modernized, and some both -- Inn at the Crossroads has done dishes like cold fruit soup, medieval larded venison, and honey spiced locusts. Corresponding passages from the books accompany each recipe as well as a beautiful photo.

The second blog fancies itself, "a medieval version of The Julie/Julia Project with a little Alton Brown on the side."

An attorney by trade, Adam Bruski's blog, Cooking Ice and Fire, sets out to make every dish in the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin.

Each post includes a passage from the book, the food's history, and a recipe.

And when it comes to some of the ingredients, Bruski has his limits:
"I don't intend to make any dog sausages and I have to do further research on whether consumption of horse is allowed in my state (if not, maybe a road trip is in order...). However, when such situations arise, I will endeavor to make the most faithful substitutions possible."
