At first glance, The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook seems like a brilliant and fairly well executed idea, though I must admit that I had questions about the use of the Hunger Games name, surely by now trademarked. In spots, the recipes are marvelous. In others, not so much. And while I certainly understand the idea behind including things like mountain goat and yucca, foraging for food is something that takes knowledge. Many - probably most - of the recipes that use foraged plant roots I would not use, even though I've been "picking wild" for more than a half a century.
As I started taking a closer look at some of the recipes I started to notice some odd things. The recipe for Finnick And Annie's Wedding: White Wedding Cake, though it is a wedding cake indeed, is not a white wedding cake.Read more ›
The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook has 9 chapters and an appendix. The appendix is largely a listing of herbs. There are also acknowledgements and an index and an About the Author section.
The first chapter, Breakfast of Champions, is just what you'd expect it to be. A chapter about breakfast foods. There are such sundries as orange muffins with sweet preserves to a Sumptuous Sausage Sunrise dish. The Fearfully Fried Potatoes (and yes I realize exactly how cheesy the dish names are) were standard fried potatoes. In fact, I was scratching my head a little at why they were included in this cookbook. The Orange Muffins with Sweet Preserves I made as well, and they were very very sweet. The texture was not muffin like though, but more like a very dense cake. The preserves made to go with it filled the equivalent of a regular sized jelly jar, and was way too much to go with the muffins, unless you made ten batches of muffins. The Fruit Frenzy was actually pretty good, but then again it was just a fixture of blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and pineapple. Which is very standard. Cheese Souffle for the Spoiled Snackers was a light dish, and it had a decent taste, but wasn't really something that was sought after in my house. I do have to say that the Cheesy Meaty Hash Brown Casserole was very good and very easy to make.Read more ›
This book is a waste of your money.
We started with Mrs. Everdeen's mush combined with Trash Taters. Lunch was Hope Salad and Wild Mushroom Soup. For dinner we feasted on rabbit stew. All in all we probably cooked enough calories in one day to feed the typical District 12 family of four for a month! And every single dish was incredible. The stew fell apart on the fork, it was so tender, and mush combined with vanilla and cream isn't entirely indeible (in fact it's entirely tasty!). Our only failure of the day was Peeta's raisin bread which, unfortunately, fell at altitude (come on, I'm trying to bake bread in District 2!). But all in all it was a marvelous day, and quite a treat to get to know some of the supporting cast (namely, the meals!)
I have a few suggestions if you want to try this.
1. watch the portions. The yield for each recipe is enormous. If you're cooking for two cut everything in half.
2. remember that you need to reduce liquids if you're cooking at altitude. Peeta's famous raisin walnut bread will need some severe tweaking if you want it to work in District 2!
3. A cool addition to Katniss' Dandelion (Hope) salad - go to your local Whole Foods and snag some edible flowers. They sell them in little plastic cartions in the refridgerated herb section. I'm telling you, when I brought it out decorated with things like pansys and roses *in* the salad it brought the house down. Ha!
We've already scheduled a "Capitol Feast Day" for when the movie is released. Until then, may the food be ever in your favor!
