In fantasy fiction, as in real-life, food offers a window into a culture. From Sansa's penchant for lemon cakes to King's Landing potshops slinging bowls of "dubious brown," food is integral to world-building. In the Song of Ice and Fire series, George R.R. Martin goes into great detail describing both elaborate feasts and everyday meals, giving fans a lot to go on when envisioning life in Westeros.
