Red or green?

"That’s the, by the way, state question in New Mexico," says Dan Flores, a historian who specializes in studies of the American West.

He's talking about chiles, the bedrock of New Mexican cuisine and a disputed ingredient 'round these parts.

In this week's episode of "Parts Unknown," Anthony Bourdain travels to the Land of Enchantment to cruise Route 66 for tacos and delve into the state's gun culture.

“Before we begin, you must all be warned nothing here is vegetarian. Bon appétit.”

One would expect nothing less from Dr. Hannibal Lecter in NBC’s new drama “Hannibal.” After all, the serial-killer psychiatrist, made most famous by Anthony Hopkins in 1991’s “The Silence of the Lambs,” cemented his love for human flesh with the iconic line, “A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.”

The love for the forbidden meat is front and center in the primetime series based on Thomas Harris’ novels. Lecter, played by Mads Mikkelsen, is an adept chef with a penchant for unusual ingredients.

“What he eats is what defines him,” explained Toronto-based food stylist Janice Poon who, along with chef José Andrés, creates the stunning, lush and creepy meals for “Hannibal.”

The new season of Game of Thrones premieres on April 6. Whet your appetite.

Black swan. Unborn puppies. A hundred live doves “baked into a great pie” and prepared to “burst forth in a swirl of white feathers.”

Those are some of the dishes I decided not to attempt for my Game of Thrones-themed dinner party.

George R.R. Martin’s “Song of Ice and Fire” books are famously long (1,040 pages for the latest installment), and roughly 50% of the word count is devoted to describing what the characters are eating. One wedding feast features an ode to most of its seventy-seven courses; even a rundown of frozen defense outpost’s dwindling supplies is good for a three-page litany about storerooms filled with “potted hare, haunch of deer in honey, pickled cabbage, pickled beets, pickled onions, pickled eggs and pickled herring.”

The HBO series embraces the books’ gluttonous spirit: The producers got a castle banquet into the very first episode.

For food fans, this is clearly a challenge. A thrown gauntlet. One week ahead of Game of Thrones season 3 premiere, I rounded up a few of my geeky friends - and some novices we hoped to convert - for our own recreation of a Westerosi feast.

Ask and ye shall receive.

After an outpouring of outrage, Maker's Mark announced Sunday that it won't be watering down its whiskey, after all. The bourbon producer last week said it would have to cut the alcohol volume of its signature red wax-sealed whiskey to 42%, from 45%, in order to meet rising global demand.
