The official companion cookbook ($20) of A Song of Ice and Fire, the series on which Game of Thrones is based, features a forward by George R.R. Martin, in which he professes his great talent for writing about extravagant meals . . . but not cooking them himself. Mom will have a blast reliving all the books from the series through the meals that brought the stories to life. The book has both medieval and modern versions of each delectable treat.
