Tyrion on wine, coq and death:
Season 1, Episode 8: The Pointy End
"It's not easy being drunk all the time. Everyone would do it if it were easy." Clearly, Tyrion Lannister loves his wine. Many of Tyrion's scenes involve his thoughts on drinking, drinking games, spilling of wine, some unfortunate effects of too much wine, and thoughts on wine and death. But we come to find that beneath this pickled persona, this drunken patron saint of cripples, bastards and broken things hides a sharp mind, a knack for survival and a deeply empathetic heart. Tyrion Lannister is, in fact, one of the most underestimated heroes in all of the Seven Kingdoms. This week we honor Tyrion Lannister, current Hand of the Queen and self-proclaimed "god of tits and wine", with this classic recipe for Coq au Vin.
