“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 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. 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 tributes, one where food can appear with the press of a button or two.

Amazing unique recipes!
This cookbook is nothing less than entertaining, especially for those diehard Hunger game fans. (So… about everyone) It’s filled with recipes based on all 3 novels. The recipes are in order of the books and take you from the beginning in district 12, up until the end in the capital. Each chapter gives you a quick reference to the storyline, a quote from Katniss or some quick description of what was happening, and explains and reminds you of the food that was featured in each. The food is definitely more adventurous, but anyone could try it. From roasted rabbit, homesick cheese buns, rich stews, to Mr.Mellark’s farewell cookies, the recipes really do represent the places and characters and are nothing short of fun. It’s pretty neat because you get to experience the book again but this time explore the food. The end leaves you with menus that can be catered to any type of dinner party. I think it would be a great gift for any fan and a wonderful way to spice up your kitchen.
