Good cookbook for fans
This book wasn't as gimmicky as I thought it would be, which was nice. Some of the recipes were actually pretty good. I LOVED the roasted turkey legs and the fruit-and-herb stuffed portobello caps were amazing. That said, a lot of the recipes were pretty elementary. The chocolate cake recipe called for a box of devil's food cake mix. Are you kidding me? I didn't buy a cookbook to be told to use cake mix! I know it's a gimmick cookbook, but come on. Otherwise, I have no complaints. If you know any crazy Hunger Games fans who also enjoy cooking, this would be a decent holiday present.
More than a cookbook
Great recipes for hunters and adventurous eaters. But there are also dishes that cater to us safe eaters. The most interesting part of this book was looking at food as a character and its role in defining the lives of the people in the different districts. This is a great concept for people who love the series and want to experience it on a personal level.
As a fan of the Hunger Games I thought it would be fun to throw a Hunger Games themed party! When I came across this cookbook I knew it was exactly what I needed to create recipes that are fun and unexpected. Many of the recipes called for ingredients I had never used before--which made them fun to track down, and even more fun to try!
