All Men Must Dine: A Game of Thrones Pop-Up Restaurant

Winter has come. And it feels like it could last a generation. There are at least two ways to feel better about it, apart from stumbling upon a stockpile of dragonglass. You can spend it chomping down comforting meals like classic casseroles, mac and cheese, steaming soups and stews, and nostalgic recipes like Mom used to make. (We can help with that.) Alternatively, you can try to win tickets to a Game of Thrones-themed pop up in London taking place between February 13 and 15. HBO is setting up the restaurant — styled to feel like a secret Small Council meeting in King’s Landing — to promote the show’s 4th season coming out on DVD and Blu-ray. We expect it lets you enjoy all the thrills of consuming poached veal tongue without the hazards of poisonous wine or a sword to the gut. The sweepstakes is running now, but you must be older than 18 and be a permanent UK resident (is that in Ulthos?)

Cheers to Chili: Wine Pairings for Big-Game Foods

Cheers to Chili

 

Beer and football go together like Clydesdales and puppies, but what is the right drink if you prefer stemware to steins?

Bryan Jones, executive chef of St. Francis Winery in Sonoma, spends a lot of time thinking about wine-and-food pairings. Jones runs the winery’s dining program, which means that he essentially is the opposite of a sommelier, cooking up just the right dish to pair with the estate’s classic California wines, like peppery Zinfandel (It’s meatloaf with a tomato-garlic-chile ketchup, if you were curious).

So we picked his brain to figure out what he’d serve at a Super Bowl party.

Fashion Designer Zac Posen on the Similarities Between Food and Fashion

American designer Zac Posen has clothed Naomi Watts, Glenn Close and Reese Witherspoon, to name a few. On tonight’s Extra Virgin at 9pm ET, he’ll bestow his fashion finesse onto Debi Mazar and her daughter Giulia when they go to his studio for a behind-the-scenes tour and dress fitting. Then she’ll pay him back with fresh Peach Bellinis, Linguine with Red Snapper (photo after the jump) and Smoked Trout Salad that also has something interesting going on with dressing. For Debi, the correlation between food and fashion has always been two-fold. Firstly, she’s deeply passionate about both. Furthermore, her love of food has caused her dress size to fluctuate over the years, forcing her granting her the opportunity to buy more and more outfits. Zac thinks food and fashion are even more closely stitched. He says:

The World’s 10 Weirdest Brunch Restaurants

Brunch: It’s not breakfast or lunch, and when you’re hung over it tends to take place well after both of them. Brunch is a time to lazily sip on mimosas and hungrily chomp on breakfast fare (or burgers). Not all brunches, however, are created equal.
