Tom Colicchio Crafts Game of Thrones Food Truck

Celebrity chef Tom Colicchio created a Game of Thrones food truck to promote HBO’s adaptation of George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire series.

The menu includes rabbit, squab cooked in sweet wine, and a head cheese dish. Colicchio told Jacket Copy he did his homework for the menu: “These are things that are right out of the book. Every night we’ll have lemon cakes out on the truck … If I really could do it, I would have whole goats roasting on a spit.”

The video embedded above features Colicchio preparing some of the Game of Thrones menu items. Bibliophiles and foodies can find the truck in New York City from March 28th to April 1st and in Los Angeles from April 4th to April 8th. HBO will air the series starting April 17th.
