As if your doctor has not given you enough warnings about butter! This dessert is the concoction of Chef Simon Robertson, who said that the deep fried butter dessert was conceived with the idea of “adding fun” to their Scottish menu. Also known as “heart attack on a plate”, this deep fried butter is made of frozen butter balls and served with Irn Bru batter. If you like your whiskey, then you ought to go for the Braveheart Butter Bombs. They’re also deep fried butter, but with a splash (or two) of whiskey.
Maybe I am sick, but for some reason, I am not too enticed. Would you try this dessert out?

It may be too late to do that for this year’s Thanksgiving dinner, but then you’ll always have an awesome excuse to have another Thanksgiving party with friends who won’t shy away from the idea of eating and drinking like Robert Baratheon.1
The second season of HBO’s Game of Thrones is still far away, but HBO is not sitting on its laurels thanks to a successful first season. They continue to send out “reminders” every now and then that Game of Thrones is coming back and probably coming back in a grander manner than we can imagine. (The first season finale is rather hard to beat, though.) Continue reading “Have a Game of Thrones Thanksgiving”
