Continue reading to find out my own thoughts regarding this cookbook, as my son and I tested it out:

I found this to be a fascinating cookbook. Many of the dishes have the original medieval version of the recipe, as well as the modern version. We’ve cooked a number ofย things from it at my house, and everything we’ve tried was delicious. The recipes are easy to read, with nicely illustrated pictures, and clear directions. Below are photos I took of a couple recipes we tried:

Aurochs Roasted with Leeks

  1. LOOKS WONDERFUL, ANGEL, WHAT A NICE JOB! SINCE I HAVE BAKED AND COOKED THE MAJORITY OF MY LIFE (AND LOVED THE “GAME OF THRONES”), THIS WOULD BE A LOVELY LITTLE COOKBOOK TO HAVE, NOT TO MENTION UNIQUE!
    THANK YOU (AND YOUR SON) SO MUCH FOR SHARING! ๐Ÿ™‚
    WARM REGARDS,
    PAM

  2. This is THE best cookbook! I’ve eaten some of the recipes and they are wonderful. It’s one of the best cookbooks I have.

  3. HELLO ANGEL,
    I HATE TO BOTHER YOU AGAIN, BUT I’M IN NEED OF SOME INFORMATION. I PUT IN A BID FOR THIS NICE COOKBOOK WITHOUT REALLY UNDERSTANDING HOW THE BIDDING WORKS. IT SAYS YOU CAN BID EVERY DAY, BUT I DON’T KNOW IF THAT MEANS I WILL BE ADDING TO THE OODLES I’VE BID OR STARTING OVER AGAIN? ARE PEOPLE NOTIFIED DAILY IF THEY HAVE WON OR DO YOU FIND OUT AT THE END OF THE PROMOTION? IN OTHER WORDS HOW DO YOU PLAY? I’VE NEVER BID ON ANYTHING BEFORE (FOR REAL!!) SO, ASIDE FROM FOLLOWING THE RULES THAT TOLD ME TO PUT IN MY BID AND THEY WOULD TAKE OUT MY ENTRY FEE, I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO EXPECT OR WHAT TO DO NEXT. WOULD YOU PLEASE BE AN “ANGEL” ๐Ÿ™‚ AND EXPLAIN THIS FOR ME?
    MANY THANKS.
    PAM

    • Hi Pam, all it means is if you do not win the daily auction, none of your Oodles are taken out of your account except for the entry fee, which is 50 Oodles. If you win an auction, than the amount you bid (as well as your entry fee) is removed. A new auctions starts daily, which means the bidding starts from scratch.

  4. DEAR ANGEL,
    THANK YOU! ONE MORE QUESTION. AT WHAT POINT IN TIME WILL YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE WON? I NOTICED IT SAYS DRAWING IS OVER AT SUCH AND SUCH A TIME, SO SHOULD I CHECK MY OODLES AFTER THAT TIME TO SEE IF MY BID HAS BEEN REMOVED, INDICATING A WIN. OR WILL IT BE AFTER 11:59PM? ALSO, IS THERE ANY WAY TO FIND OUT WHAT OTHERS ARE OR HAVE BEEN BIDDING IN ORDER TO GET AN IDEA OF WHAT THE COMPETITION IS? ONCE AGAIN, MY GRATITUDE, DEAR.
    PAM

    • I believe an email is sent out, but yes, if the Oodles are gone after Midnight ET that’s a pretty good indication. ๐Ÿ™‚ And no, there’s no way to know what a typical bid amount is. Sorry.

      • Don’t know what the typical bids are, but I was looking at the auction winners and saw this list of winners:
        Game of Thrones Cookbook Auction 4/4/2014 blackfall1 106,877
        Game of Thrones Cookbook Auction 4/5/2014 lindaedman 100,000
        Game of Thrones Cookbook Auction 4/6/2014 doxieblue 60,500

        • DEAR GLORIA,
          MANY THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT!! I HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO FIND A PLACE WHERE THE ACTUAL BIDS HAVE BEEN POSTED. THIS, AT LEAST, GIVES ME AN IDEA OF WHAT TO SHOOT FOR. IT WAS SO KIND OF YOU TO SHARE YOUR INFORMATION.
          DO HAVE A LOVELY WEEK AND BEST OF LUCK WITH YOUR GAMES. ๐Ÿ™‚
          SINCERELY,
          PAM

  5. DEAR ANGEL,
    THANK YOU AGAIN, BRENDY. I HOPE YOU REALIZE HOW MUCH I APPRECIATE YOUR REPLIES, INFORMATION AND HARD WORK YOUNG LADY. <3 !
    SINCERELY,
    PAM (OLD LADY ! ๐Ÿ™‚ )
    BTW, THAT BACK ARROW WITH THE THREE IS SUPPOSED TO BE A HEART, BUT FOR SOME REASON IT DOESN'T SHOW UP AS A HEART WHEN I PUT IT HERE? I WAS JUST TAUGHT HOW TO DO THAT NOT LONG AGO AND IT DOES WORK ON GSN FACE BOOK.

    • You’re welcome! Not all symbols work the same way on all platforms. On Facebook and Twitter, <3 makes a heart, but not on Word Press, and some phone texting. It still means a heart though so it’s appropriate to use any time, like a smile face. This means a high five: ^5

  6. GOODNESS, ARE YOU STANDING OVER MY SHOULDER?? ๐Ÿ™‚ THANKS AGAIN, SWEETHEART. I DIDN’T KNOW THAT ONE EITHER, BUT THEN, AS I’VE MENTIONED ONCE TOO OBVIOUSLY, I’M STILL IN KINDERGARTEN WHEN IT COMES TO COMPUTER LANGUAGE. NOW JAPANESE IS ANOTHER STORY ALTOGETHER! ๐Ÿ™‚
    (Seriously. My father was an Army Officer and we lived in Japan for three years. It was wonderful! Climbed part way up Mt. Fuji, toured a Silk Worm Farm, and drank in the scent of the beautiful Cherry Blossoms!) ๐Ÿ™‚
    <3 Pam
