Here's how to make Pigeon Pie from "Game of Thrones"
In preparation for the Game of Thrones season six premiere on April 24th, Bon Appetit released a series of Westeros-inspired recipes, including a recipe video for Pigeon Pie. The magazine gave the classic cooking-style video a Game of Thrones twist, using fonts and slang from the series while preparing a meal fit for a king or khaleesi.

When all is said and done, it should look a little something like this:
There’s no better way to enjoy the new season than by getting your palette in the spirit, even if you’ll end up spitting half the food out in surprise as the show kills off half of its cast.
