The cookbook reads much like the novels that inspired it did, such as following the same adventurous path and introducing the characters and what they ate throughout the story. A great example is the Tesserae Hearth Bread Loaf, which gives you the joy of being able to make your own bread, and allows you to imitate the character of Peeta. My favorite recipe in the first chapter is the Fried Catfish and Roasted Katniss tubers, but I can't wait to try making the Mellark Bakery's goat cheese and apple tarts. As the cookbook goes on, just like The Hunger Games, the food gets more elaborate and interesting. The food inspired by the capitol is the most intricate and delicious sounding, like the Tribute Lamb Chops.
The Unofficial Recipes of The Hunger Games was a fun read, giving many at home ideas to fans of the series. I really enjoyed that each recipe included in the cookbook had a specific tie in to the story, sometimes even describing where Katniss or other characters ate the food along their journey. It easily connects the fans to the story, through the meals they are preparing themselves, which was such a nice touch. There are also ideas and menus for throwing your own Hunger Games parties, which would be great for kids and families!
Engaging and adventurous, this fabulous find takes fantasy foodies on a gastronomic tour through the Panem universe district by district. Not just a remix of Suzanne Collin's original work, this genuinely well-crafted cookbook serving up 187 thematic meal and gift recipes, party menus and edgy outsider cuisine; each prefaced by a thumbnail description of the literary reference from the trilogy.
There is a bread, salad, edgy entree, delectable dessert and confection for everyone with recipes running the gamut from earthy District 12 Appalachian fare - Catfish Stew, Hazelle's Hearty Beaver Stew, Sautéed Apples With Brown Sugar and Cinnamon - to decadent Capitol delights: Orange Chicken in Cream Sauce, Goose Liver in Puffy Bread and flambéed Firey Spirits Rum Cake.
Snug up in by the fire with a cup of Delectable Hot Chocolate; a plate of Mr.Mellark's Farewell Cookies and enjoy "The Unofficial Recipes of The Hunger Games" before the holiday rush. You'll love it!!!!
