Game of Thrones fans, have you ever craved one of Hot Pie’s Direwolf-shaped loaves of bread? Then you’re in luck, because the fictional baker from the popular HBO series has just opened a real bakery in London. But that’s not the best part. The best part is the name, because Hot Pie – real name Ben Hawkey – has decided to call the bakery….wait for it… You Know Nothing John Dough!
“Hot Pie’s Direwolf loaves are a favorite for Game of Thrones fans, and people are always asking me for the secret of my recipe,” Hawkey told Digital Spy. “I can’t share that, but Deliver customers will have the chance to try them themselves. You don’t even need to take a dangerous walk down the King’s Road to visit, it comes to you.”
The bakery, run in partnership with Deliveroo, opened its doors on July 17 right after the GoT season 7 premiere, and you can find it by searching for their name in the app. Their iconic Direwolf bread is made from wholewheat cornbread and orange zest, and is best served slightly warm with soft butter, but it comes as no surprise to learn that they quickly ran out (probably because they were only selling them for £1). Hurry up and make some more Hot Pie! There are hungry people outside of Westeros you know.
