The final season of Game of Thrones is about to begin in Fairbanks, Alaska and it’s been a culinary delight. My Sunday dinner gang of 10 has been getting together since the show began, eating, talking, drinking and debating our way through the books and episodes… And did I say eating?
We’ve feasted on salmon caught with dip nets in the Copper River Valley and more salmon set netting in the Kasilof River. We’ve smoke it, canned it, roasted it, and sampled it raw.. We’ve speared Whitefish with tridents on dark October nights and eaten it smoked, canned, pickled and baked. We’ve eaten from our gardens, from farmer’s markets, tried medieval recipes and bona fide Westeros cookbooks.
We’re sfwa writers, readers, professors, politicians, gamers, friends and Alaskans. We love to eat, drink and gather on Sundays to watch the Game. And in case you need a reminder, I highly recommend this two minute re-cap before Sunday and the final season kicks off.
