"Hungry for the dishes served up in Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy? The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook: From Lamb Stew to "Groosling" -- More Than 150 Recipes Inspired by The Hunger Games Trilogy is ready to rock fans' kitchens." --USA Today "The Hunger Games movie is just a few months away, and really, who isn't secretly super-excited for the teen post-apocalyptic book trilogy to make it to the big screen? Watching the trailer on repeat is pretty fun. . . but now comes an even better way to sate your appetite--literally--until the film comes out. The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook!" --Village Voice "In the postapocalyptic fantasy series The Hunger Games, starving characters eat whatever they can kill or forage: wild dog, horse, tree bark, mouse have become obsessed with the food in the books, trying home preparation of dishes such as fire-roasted rabbit and seaweed bread. This month, The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook was published, with 150 recipes for rustic, gamy fare including fried squirrel and raccoon in bacon drippings, though none for dog. Food, and the lack of it, is a recurring theme in the dystopian trilogy." --The Wall Street Journal "Most of the recipes are definitely ones that my whole family will enjoy and the kids will love knowing about the connection to The Hunger Games. If you or your children are fans of The Hunger Games, you definitely need to pick up a copy of The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook." --Confessions of an Overworked Mom Blog "I give it a 'buy.' If you are into cooking game, and like a diverse cookbook that allowed you to easily substitute ingredients, then this is for you." --Bossy Italian Wife Blog
"Here's some advice. Stay alive." --Haymitch Abernathy When it comes to The Hunger Games, staying alive means finding food any way possible. Katniss and Gale hunt live game, Peeta's family survives on the bread they make, and the inhabitants of the Seam work twelve-hour days for a few handfuls of grain--all while the residents of the Capitol gorge themselves on delicacies and desserts to the heart's desire. For the first time, you will be able to create delicious recipes from the humble District 12 to the extravagant Capital, including: French Bread from the Mellark Family Bakery; Katniss's Favorite Lamb Stew with Dried Plums; Rue's Roasted Parsnips; Gale's Bone-Pickin' Big Game Soup; Capitol-Grade Dark Chocolate Cake. If you're starving for more from Katniss, Peeta, and Gale, this cookbook is sure to whet your appetite!

I didn't get to try the recipes, but I did browse a bit and some are simple such as a breakfast that I remember requires prehaps only potatoes, eggs, and bacon.

However, if you haven't finished reading the trilogy (since the 2nd part of Mockingjay hasn't been released in movie theatres as I write this), there are spoilers. The recipes are in sections, such as breads and desserts as I recall, and in book order (The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, Mockingjay) within each section, but the title or description of the recipe may give away a special event that happens to the characters. I didn't even necessarily know who a male character and a female character's relationship status necessarily was before a very specific and special cake was mentioned regarding them. (And no, I don't necessarily mean Katniss and Peta or Gale.)

Well, as I'm not going to forage for clover for tea or fry up a squirrel any time soon, this book is more of a novelty than anything. Yes, it has quotes and tips from your sponsor -- but no pictures. However, the mockingjay flatbread crackers were quite good. Sprinkle some sea salt on top and you're good to go.

Great cookbook with lots of fun, creative recipes. If anything, you MUST try the healthy quinoa salad with celery & cranberries. And the sweet orange cake is AMAZING!
