"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!

Kind of stupid. Some of the info is wrong, and some recipes are too vague in the ingredients.
Pine needle tea is wrong because the recipe NEEDS to be particular because some pine trees are toxic. (Use fir trees, in case your'e wondering.)

Absolutely love this! Particularly great for when Katniss is describing those delicous Capitol feasts...! I especially enjoyed Peeta's cheese buns, and the chai concoction. :)
Happy Hunger Games, and good reading to you all!

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!

A fun way to enjoy the Hunger Games trilogy even more. Each recipe has a quote from the chapter it was mentioned, and the commentary was also enjoyable. The recipes were delicious, though some ingredients were perhaps a bit far-fetched (squirrel!) A delightful cookbook an overall read, though it is recommended that you read each book first, so there are no spoilers! Happy cooking! (and reading)
