On Sunday’s episode of “Game of Thrones,” Arya Stark came face-to-face with her past with two surprise encounters. The one that everyone was talking about, of course, was her unexpected reunion with her now-feral direwolf, Nymeria.
But the other, less expected reunion was with her former fugitive buddy, Hot Pie, who had the pleasure of informing Arya that Jon and Sansa are alive and have taken back Winterfell.
Ahead of his surprise return to the HBO hit, Hot Pie actor Ben Hawkey opened a bakery of his own on July 17 and is offering “GoT” fans in Britain some Westerosi treats.
The bakery, which Hawkey has gloriously named “You Know Nothing, Jon Dough,” is selling direwolf-shaped bread similar to the ones Hot Pie made for Arya when they parted ways many years ago. Made from wholewheat cornbread with orange zest, the loaves have been sold on Deliveroo for £1 each, but as you might expect with “Game of Thrones” related cuisine, they have become so popular that the bakery is not currently accepting orders.
“Hot Pie’s Direwolf loaves are a favorite for ‘Game of Thrones’ fans, and people are always asking me for the secret of my recipe,” Hawkey told Digital Spy. “I can’t share that, but Deliver customers will have the chance to try them themselves. You don’t even need to take a dangerous walk down the King’s Road to visit, it comes to you.”
If you can’t wait for orders to open again … or you live in America and can’t get the bread, consider checking out “A Feast of Ice and Fire,” a cookbook featuring recipes for all sorts of dishes that have been lavishly described by George R.R. Martin in his books. Superfans and amateur chefs Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Sariann Lehrer have also written an appendix featuring dishes from Dorne, and they’re far less likely to disappoint than the storyline that came from that region.
“Game of Thrones” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
