“Game of Thrones” fans are gonna loave this.

Not only did last week’s episode feature the surprise return of cult favorite character Hot Pie, but it turns out that the actor who plays him bakes bread shaped like direwolves in real life.

Actor Ben Hawkey, 21, who was one of Arya Stark’s (Maise Williams) traveling companions in seasons two and three, has opened an online bakery on the U.K. delivery site Deliveroo called – wait for it – “You Know Nothing Jon Dough.”

(For those unfamiliar with the coming of winter, “You know nothing, Jon Snow,” is a phrase women on the show like to throw at Arya’s “half brother” Jon Snow.)

Hot Pie gave Arya one of these loaves shaped like the uber wolves representing her noble family’s house when they parted in season 3. But since then, Hawkey has whipped up even prettier versions of the iconic loaves offscreen, which he began selling for just $1.30 apiece on Deliveroo this month pegged to the July 17th “Thrones” premiere in the U.K.

“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,” said Hawkey in a statement.

“I can’t share that,” he teased – although his character hinted last weekend that the secret to Hot Pies’ signature bread is “browning the butter before making the dough.”

The press release also describes the treats as “delicious whole wheat cornbread with orange zest, best served slightly warm with soft butter.” We’ll bite.

Hawkey added that customers around London, “don’t even need to take a dangerous walk down the King’s Road to visit, it comes to you.”

American fans will have to go hungry, however, since the loaves only ship within the U.K.

Plus, so many people around London wolfed them down that they are currently out stock, although a spokesperson assured Moneyish that the bakery will be open again in time for the season finale, and they’re also looking at expanding their delivery range.

“Now [that] we know how popular they are with Deliveroo customers, we’re looking into how we can best extend this,” he said.
