This week The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show is a Game of Thrones 2-for-1!
You don’t just get a conversation with one of the chefs behind the Game of Thrones cookbook, you also get the return of the linguist who creates artificial languages for Game of Thrones.
If you listen to my podcast, you’re already familiar with the linguist. He’s one of my all-time favorite guests, and this is his fourth appearance on the show. We discuss this season’s new language, High Valyrian, so you already know that’s cool.
One of the many neat things about A Feast of Ice & Fire, the Game of Thrones cookbook, is that it’s organized geographically. Here’s a quote from the episode with more about that:
“We approached things like a fictional locavore. We took into account the culture, the climate, trade routes, and let all of that determine what ingredients might be available…
So the north would have a lot meats and preserved things. Much more so on the wall, especially where they are on a budget. Winterfell, obviously, is a little bit richer… so you think about whole roast pigs turning on a spit. They’re rich enough that they can get goods from the South. So that’s why Sansa is able to enjoy lemoncakes.”
