“Game of Thrones” new trailer has just been released online and all fans are crashed by the announce that the seventh season will be broadcast in July. Considering that last year the much loved series was aired starting from April, the despair for the wait is even greater.

Therefore, I have decided to distract myself with cooking. I prepared the reworking of a fragrant recipe included in the amazing book “A Feast of Ice and Fire” written by two wonderful foodbloggers Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Sariann Lehrer. The cookbook teaches all the recipes extracted by Martin’s Saga books. The recipe was initially featured in my blog Calde Delizie.

It’s one of Arya’s favorite sweets…

She filched one anyway, and ate it on her way out. It was stuffed with CHOPPED NUTS AND FRUITS AND CHEESE, the crust flaky and still warm from the oven. Eating Ser Amory’s TART made Arya feel daring. Barefoot surefoot lightfoot, she sang under her breath. I am the ghost in Harrenhal. —A Clash of Kings

Title: Fruits and Cheese Tarts

Directed by: Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Sariann Lehrer

Cast (of ingredients)

2 sheets of puff pastry, 2 glasses of red wine, 1/2 cup of honey, 1 egg, 2 apples, 6oz of soft goat cheese, 1/2 lemon, a pinch of salt, pepper, chopped walnuts.

Prepare the “bloody atmosphere”

Bring the honey and wine to boil, then reduce the heat and skim the foam. Let cool to obtain a syrup consistency of a bright bloody red.

Using a pastry cutter make 10 disks of the same size, then with a smaller cutter shape create smaller disks in only 5 of them. Form a crown with the exceeding part of the pastry (as shown in the pic) and transfer them on the 5 remaining bases rolling the borders up.

Prick the pastry with a fork, brush with a beaten egg and put in the freezer for an half hour.

Let the protagonists in…

In the meantime cut into cubes the apples after peeling them off and whisk the soft goat cheese with the lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Once the tarts are frozen fill them with the cheese, the apple cubes  and sprinkle with plenty of pepper and chopped walnuts.

…the heat on…

Bake in the preheated oven at 350F for 30/35 minutes.

Serve the tarts after pouring on them the red wine syrup and pay attention not to have have too much bloody drops to show your deeds..
