The Game of Food

Even though this link was posted on Kottke, the site is so original it deserves a mention. The site specializes in the food of George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series. They have everything from Apricot Tarts to Heraldic Banner Cake Toppers to Lager and Tankards and Beers.
Innovation is deep in the heart of any culinary exercise, not to mention perfectly in keeping with the culture of both the Middle Ages and of Westeros. Ingredients could not be guaranteed, and so substitutes were often made. If you like the sound of stewed goat but all you have is lamb, go for it!
