The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook: From Lamb Stew to "Groosling" - More than 150 Recipes Inspired by The Hunger Games Trilogy
The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook
In this video, author Emily Ansara Baines 'Dishes' On The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook: From Lamb Stew to Groosling - and the food in The Hunger Games books and movie.
I really am thrilled. Previously, when there was a release like The Hunger Games about which the fans were so excited, we had to work hard to come up with recipe resources but not so the case with The Hunger Games for there is already an unofficial cookbook available as illustrated here, called The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook.
If you are familiar with the series, you are aware that staying alive is not a simple task for the characters in The Hunger Games and that they had to resort to finding food in whatever ways they could. This, depending upon who you are, might involve hunting, baking and working long, long days to scrape out a living. For the lucky, there was an unlimited source of food available.
This cookbook shares the recipes from the poor District 12 to the rich Capital and includes bread from the Mellark Bakery, Katniss's lamb stew, Rue's roasted parsnips and Gale's big game soup.
The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook was published on December 1, 2011. So far this 256 page book has been met with mostly good Amazon customer reviews, which can be read by clicking right here. A sampling of the quotes includes:
Kathleen Weisman says, " I could not imagine a more loving tribute to the Hunger Games trilogy."
Cooking Mom said, "...I'd recommend this to anyone who likes the series enough to want to cook from it."
Finally, reviewer F.L. said, "Expected this to be a nice bit of Hunger Games memorabilia, and was surprised to find that it's actually a good cookbook! The recipes are varied, interesting, and delicious. And there are a LOT of them - this is not a skimpy book. It also does a wonderful job incorporating the Hunger Games."
