Tyroshi Honeyfingers Medieval Recipe- Game of Thrones Food Recipes

 

“[W]e seldom had enough coin to buy anything … well, except for a sausage now and again, or honeyfingers … do they have honeyfingers in the Seven Kingdoms, the kind they bake in Tyrosh?” 
—A GAME OF THRONES


Where is Tyrosh?

Tyrosh is one of the most powerful of the Free Cities ("Tyroshi" is pronounced "Ti-ROH-shee". "Tyrosh" is pronounced "Ti-ROHsh"). It is said to dwarf Sunspear in size. It is reported to be boisterous and loud, with a large harbor guarded by the Bleeding Tower. Tyrosh is one of the Free Cities located to the east of Westeros. It is situated on an island off the southwestern coast of Essos, in the Narrow Sea. It is located at the eastern end of the Stepstones, an island chain that extends from Essos to Westeros, which according to legend used to be a land-bridge linking the two continents. Therefore, Tyrosh is the closest of the Free Cities to Westeros, located not far from Dorne and the Stormlands (fairly close to the island of Tarth).

Due to its central location - between Westeros and the other Free Cities, at the middle latitude of the Free Cities between Braavos in the north and Volantis to the south, and its proximity to constant wars between Lys and Myr in the Disputed Lands - Tyrosh is often seen as a major world hub for hiring the services of various professional mercenary companies, to serve in the various conflicts of these different regions. Tyrosh is also well-known for its pear-brandy.

Notable Tyroshi

Daario Naharis, a Tyroshi mercenary. Daario Naharis, former lieutenant and now captain of the Second Sons, a sellsword company, now sworn to Daenerys Targaryen. The people of Tyrosh are called Tyroshi. They love loud and garish colors. They are known for their creation of ornate armor and elaborate torture devices. Pear brandy is an export of the city. Slaves and mercenaries are commonly hired there. Tyroshi have a reputation of being insatiably greedy. They speak a bastardized version of High Valyrian.


Roman Honeyfingers

piper, nucleos, mel, rutam et passum teres, cum lacte et tracta coques. coagulum coque cum modicis ovis … ita ut durissimam pultem facias, deinde in patellam expandis. cum refrixerit, concidis quasi dulcia et frigis in oleo optimo. levas, perfundis mel, piper aspargis et inferes. melius feceris, si lac pro aqua miseris.
—APICIUS, 4TH CENTURY

Makes 30 to 40 honeyfingers
Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes

Pairs well with Beet Soup, Rack of Lamb, Iced Milk with Honey

This recipe is a curiosity. The honeyfingers fry to a crispy crunch on the outside while remaining a bit chewy on the inside. The pieces are easy to cut into shapes, and could probably even be rolled into logs. The flavor is really all about the honey, but the pepper and cinnamon on top, as well as the pine nuts, add a slight complexity.


INGREDIENTS:

⅛ cup plus ¾ cup flour
1 cup whole milk (goat or cow)
Olive oil
2 tablespoons cooking sherry or sweet wine
1 egg, beaten
⅓ cup pine nuts, finely chopped
Cinnamon to taste
Ground black pepper to taste
1 cup honey, or more if needed
Chopped pine nuts for garnish


PROCEDURE:

1) In a medium saucepan, whisk the ⅔ cup flour a little at a time into the cold milk so that there are no lumps

2) Add 1 tablespoon of the oil and the sherry, and cook on medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until a thick porridge forms. 

3) Remove the pan from the heat and continue to stir briskly to cool the mixture.

4) When the porridge is lukewarm, add the egg and stir briskly until it is blended. Stir in the pine nuts and a dash of cinnamon and pepper. 

5) Stir in the remaining ¾ cup flour to make a dough that is sticky but can still be handled.

6) On a floured board with floured hands, press the dough out to a ½-inch-thick rectangle; cut it into finger-size strips.

7) Cover the bottom of a frying pan with a layer of olive oil about ½ inch deep. Heat the oil and fry the strips of dough until they are golden brown and crispy. 

8) Remove the fried strips to a plate covered with paper towels to drain. 

9) Dip them in honey and sprinkle them with cinnamon and pine nuts.
