Book Description

"What must it be like, I wonder, to live in a world where food appears at the press of a button? How would I spend the hours I now commit to combing the woods for sustenance if it were so easy to come by?" -- Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games trilogy captivates its audience through a storyline dominated by the quest for food, with the vast culinary disparity between the impoverished districts and the opulent Capitol taking center stage. For the Hunger Games characters, food is both a weapon and an act of love, and -- as in today's world -- it is essential to survival. Fortunately, most of us inhabit a more prosperous world than the Hunger Games tributes, one where food can appear with the press of a button.


Savor the post-apocalyptic world of Panem one dish at a time with The Unofficial Recipes of The Hunger Games. Offering 187 recipes, this cookbook serves fans an authentic taste of the Hunger Games trilogy, whether foraged for in the impoverished District 12 or devoured at the lavish banquets of the Capitol.

Satisfy your appetite with the recipes savored by the Hunger Games tributes: 
  • Peeta's Burnt Raisin Nut Bread
  • Orange Chicken in Cream Sauce
  • Beloved Lamb Stew With Dried Plums
Consume the dishes inspired by the heroic characters of The Hunger Games:
  • Creamy Roasted Katniss Soup
  • Prim's Birthday Venison Steaks
  • Gale's Venison Pot Roast
Hunt like Katniss and Gale for adventurous ingredients and create daring dishes: 
  • Greasy Sae's Holiday Stuffed Possum
  • Hazelle's Authentic Beaver Stew
Transport your senses into the world of The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay, and relish the delicious adventures of the trilogy over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously delicious! November 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got this as a birthday gift for my niece, who devoured the Hunger Games books I gave her last year. Before wrapping it up, though, I checked out some of the recipes, and surprise, surprise...they were awesome! Each one is extremely well thought out and comes with an in-depth explanation as to how it relates to the Games. Everything is organized in chronological order; it goes from exploring the peasant foods of the districts to the first train ride meal, the extravagant fare of the capitol, the cuisine of the arena and then onward through the later books. I especially loved making the train ride meal and imagining it was the first proper meal I'd had in my life! I'd never really thought of carrot soup as decadent before, but it was sooo rich and creamy and bursting with flavor. With the exception of perhaps the final section, "Authenticity for Adventurous Eaters," no section in the book was any less appealing than the others. Although I didn't feel moved to cook a squirrel for the "charred tree rat" recipe, it was fun that they included it...and hey, it's a good reference for the apocalypse! But fruit-and-herb-stuffed portobello caps? Finger-licking chocolate cake? Yes please!

4.0 out of 5 stars Odds in your favor and recipes filled with flavor! October 2, 2012
By wells
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This Hunger Games inspired cookbook is full of fun, inventive recipes based on the popular books. Fans will love references to their favorite scenes and characters. Each chapter focuses on part of the story. For example, The Woods and The Hearth, includes recipes from the home district with food that Katniss and Gale would provide to their families by hunting, gathering, or through trade. Prim's Goat Cheese Gifts is a simple tasty appetizer representing when Prim leaves goat cheese wrapped in basil for Katniss. Other chapters include food Katniss could encounter during her time on the train, in the capital and during the games. The hot chocolate recipe, from the train chapter, includes brown sugar. It's sure to become a kid fave. The 6th chapter includes recipes from the first book. The Cake on Fire, based on Katniss, the girl on fire, would be perfect for a Hunger Games party. Later chapters include equally tasty and amusing recipes from Catching Fire and The Mocking Jay. The Authenticity for the Adventurous recipes include mush, rabbit and unusual fare befitting this daring title. With these delightful recipes clearly the odds will be ever in your favor!

5.0 out of 5 stars No Need to go Hungry October 1, 2012
By R. Farr
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Have a hankering for Rat? Don't know what to do with those Venison steaks?
Need a party menu?
Welcome to "The Unofficial Recipes of the Hunger games". Don't worry, with 187
mouthwatering culinary creations, rat isn't the only thing on the menu. Fans of the
Trilogy will be thrilled to find recipes for lamb stews, tubers, fresh greens, seafood, wild
fowl and game, even paté, along with other delectable dishes, like `Cake on Fire' or
`Buttercup's Bacon and French Toast'. The book is well organized and most of the
ingredients are easily located at your local grocery.
With dishes like `Haymitch's Pork Chops And Smashed Potatoes'
or `Mom Everdeen's Breakfast of Mush', every palette will find pleasure. I can't wait to
try `Savory Pumpkin Soup with Nuts' and a hearty slice of `Peeta's Burnt Raisin Nut
Bread', (complete with instructions on burning) followed by a cup of `Soothing Honey
and Spiced Milk'. For the adventurous, recipes like `Katniss' Baked Pigeon` or `Charred
Tree Rat` look exceptional. The suggested party menus for kids, teens and adults are
brilliant. A creative blend of fiction and food, this is a must read and less dangerous
way of enjoying the dishes from the Hunger Games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Companion to the Hunger Games Trilogy! November 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Anyone who read the Hunger Games trilogy will appreciate this book of recipes. The Unofficial Recipes of the Hunger Games has everything from "Peeta's Burnt Raisin Nut Bread" to dishes of a more adventurous nature (recipes involving ingredients like liver and rabbit). The fun part is that each chapter has a specific theme or setting from the books, for example: The Seam and District 12, The Capitol, The Arena. Each section uses quotes and passages from the trilogy so we get to experience the books all over again through the foods featured in Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay.

This book would be great for a Hunger Games themed party--or even just to keep around the kitchen. The book has some great tips that include the importance of kneading bread dough or the kinds of edible flowers you can use to decorate a cake. I really enjoyed this book. May the odds be ever in your flavor!

How often does a cookbook make you extremely grateful for your local grocery store? That you don't have to venture out on your own every day to gather all the ingredients you need, but rather they can all be found in one place? That's exactly how "The Unofficial Recipes of The Hunger Games" will make you feel and understand the obsession for the heroic, strong-willed main characters that face the overwhelming task of providing food for their families every single day. For someone like me who hasn't read this popular trilogy, it introduces the world of Panem by offering quotes and short narratives of where that particular dish appears in one of the three books. The 187 recipes are unique, easy to follow and mouth-watering. I'm particularly looking forward to trying Mellark's Cinnamon Bread, Arena Beef Strips and Golden Honey Custard. See? Mouth-watering. This book would be a great gift idea for a die-hard fan or someone just looking for new and exciting recipes not found in your average cookbook.
