Article should show association between Greek food dishes and Game of Thrones characters and how they could be won over by the dishes to win at the Game of Thrones. Like I've seen in an episode and read in the book Aria mention a dish called Bowl of Brown, lol, which seems like a stew. Use any Greek food dish with short description of what the dish is and made up of and why would help win the character over that its associated with. Like there is a Greek dish called Beef stifado that could be used for Aria, its like stew but with baby onions, if you know onions they very tangy and spice raw but in this stew they sweet after being cooked. Like Aria you see one thing but get another. Jon Snow = Mousaka Little Finger = Octopus or Kalamari The Hound = Greek Lemon Chicken and Potatoes Ramsi Boltan = Loukaniko Daenerys = Spetsofai Tyrion = Ortikia (quails) or souvlaki Cersi = Tzatziki Those just some of the ideas I have could be any though. Hope this explains what I'm looking for, not great at writing thats why need someone to do this, lmao.
