There's another medieval assortment of recreated dishes going on too.

To promote "Game of Thrones" HBO has enlisted kitchen wizard and "Top  
Chef" favorite Tom Colicchio to spearhead branded "Game of Thrones"  
food trucks which will roam the streets of Los Angeles and New York  
City serving free food inspired by the "taste experience of the Seven  

What does that actually mean? Apparently Colicchio will page homage to  
the various "Game of Thrones" banquets with roasted rabbit, spice  
roasted duck and venison.

But supplies will be limited. Only 300 servings will be available each  
day, as the "Game of Thrones" food trucks navigate New York City from  
March 28 through April 1 and Los Angeles from April 4 through April  
8. .... follow "Game of Thrones" either on Facebook or Twitter.
Check out Colicchio's spectacularly geeky explanation of how he  
crafted the "Game of Thrones" menu: http://www.hitfix.com/articles/game-of-thrones-tom-colicchio-combine-for-food-truck-promo

Given what he said on Top Chef about medieval food being spicy because  
it was covering up rancid meats, I wondered what he'd be creating.
