As of this writing, the much anticipated seventh season of Game of Thrones is just four days away. More specifically, the premiere is just 13 meals away, if you haven’t had your Wednesday dinner yet.

If you find yourself fiending to re-immerse yourself in the world of dragons, violence, sex, and violent sex (no violent dragon sex … yet) and can’t wait those four days, YouTube channel Binging with Babish has the perfect way for you to tide your cravings over—three delicious meals ripped straight from the pages of George R.R. Martin’s novels that inspired the HBO phenomenon.

In his tutorial, Chef Andrew Rea shows us how to make: pigeon pie, the last thing King Joffrey ate before his utterly satisfying demise; Dothraki blood pie, complete with pig’s blood; and lemon cakes, Sansa Stark’s favorite food, according to the meeting with Olenna Tyrell that helped spark Joff’s assassination.

Thankfully, in case you’re the Jon Snow of cooking, Chef Rea explains every step, so even Hodor could follow along.
