Game Of Thrones‘ own Hot Pie opened his own bakery to celebrate the return of the HBO show. Last Monday (July 17), actor Ben Hawkey, who plays the character, sold snacks to hungry fans via Deliveroo. The bakery, called You Know Nothing Jon Dough, sold Direwolf bread based on the one Hot Pie baked for Arya Stark in the series. Hawkey’s recipe saw the loaves being made out of wholewheat cornbread and orange zest, as Digital Spy reports. Instructions suggest they are best served slightly warm with soft butter. – NME
I say this with all sincerity: opening a bakery called You Know Nothing Jon Dough is one of the best things I’ve ever heard. I’m a fan of witty play on words, but Ben Hawkey a.k.a. Hot Pie is a literary genius for coming up with this. On top of the incredible name, the Direwolf bread actually sounds delicious. Whole wheat cornbread and orange zest, served slightly warm with soft butter? Sign me the hell up. I’d fight The Mountain in a death duel for some of that sweet Direwolf bread. Now all I want is a subplot of Hot Pie working at a bakery with a huge ‘You Know Nothing Jon Dough’ sign out front that all the characters can stop into as they venture about the Seven Kingdoms.
