    Have you read the Hunger Games books, watched the movie, yet still want more? Take a new approach to the Hunger Games Trilogy and cook the food featured or at least inspired by the stories. This book is definitely a different, but fascinating take on the stories and the recipes sound really good so it shouldn’t be difficult to make your way through the entire 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.

    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.

    As a fan of the Hunger Games I though it would be fun to throw a Hunger Games 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!

    Suzanne Collin’s dares you to eat ‘Charred Tree Rat’, ‘Beaver Stew’ and ‘Blood Orange Quail’ in this exciting and culinary delight of a cookbook. The rat is a squirrel, the beaver is beef but there IS a Quail in the next dish. ‘Forage’ for your favorite meal from the movie, ‘HUNGER GAMES: Catching Fire’ and get your next party off with a bang! One last very important item…. the best part of the book comes near the end. There's a ‘Menu List’ for Kids, another for Adults and Young Adults and an Elegant Capitol Dinner Party Menu. So if you don’t find what you are looking for at the beginning, just view the menu ideas at the back and you can’t go wrong! Everyone will love your culinary expertise.

    The Catching Fire cookbook is great for anyone who loves watchin

    The Catching Fire cookbook is great for anyone who loves watching The Hunger Games movies. All of the dishes that can be found inside are either directly mentioned in the novels or they are inspired by scenes in the movies. Because of this, you can watch the movies and lose yourself in the post-apocalyptic setting without having to navigate the dangerous terrain of Panem. If you would like to experience the Catching Fire movie or novel to the fullest, then this cookbook is definitely for you.

    A unique layout and inviting recipes makes the Unofficial Catching Fire Cookbook available to all ages and levels of skill.  Dishes are themed according to the popular stories, and convenient side notes provide background into the authenticity of each food.  Variations and substitutions are handily provided, in case the home kitchen is not well-stocked with rat, quail, lavender flowers, or whole goat, and theme party menus are conveniently cross-referenced with a variety of dishes; simple to exotic.

    Entertain guests this holiday with Paprika Duck and Rosemary or Burnt “Tree Rat” for the Timid from the Catching Fire Cookbook. This cookbook appeals to the adventurous at the dinner table. It’s a great cookbook for those who enjoy game meat suggestions. But everyone can find something new to serve from its pages, like homemade peppermint ice cream for a winter treat.

    The Unofficial Catching Fire Cookbook, enlivens the reader's imagination through their appetite, while creating another dimension of the fictional world for fans to enjoy.  Recipes range from District 12 home cooking, like 'Prim's Hearty Beef Stew', to Quell festivity dishes, such as 'Ocean Creatures and Cocktail Sauce', are simple to follow with pretty good ingredients. The only recipe that I, a food snob, scoffed at was the recipe for 'Mellark's Cinnamon Bread', which calls for instant vanilla pudding mix. That recipe is the one of the few that is as low-brow as the series itself.

    I¿m still not sure how a recipe for Fish Cakes with Wasabi Lime

    I’m still not sure how a recipe for Fish Cakes with Wasabi Lime Mayo ended up in this cookbook…but it might be interesting to try it out. Overall, this is a playful collection of edibles reminiscent of the 74th Hunger Games. The recipes are not weight-friendly or exceptionally unique, but if you are an avid Hunger Games fan it could be a fun read with some interesting delicacies to try out.

    Ever had the sudden desire to roast a whole goat? The Catching Fire Cookbook showcases varied proteins, deserts, and baked goods in often imaginative ways. The typesetting and layout is less than ideal for a cookbook, but the charm and ease of execution to the recipes makes up for it.

    recipes – ones for food fit for a president’s ball, or for a “Catching Fire” -inspired dinner party.

    I particularly recommend the peppermint ice cream, and Hazel’s Authentic Beaver Stew. Bon appetit!

    The Catching Fire Cookbook is very unique. The recipes are easy to do and you will enjoy making these recipes for you, your family or for a Hunger Games theme party. The cookbook has Entrees, Desserts and even Appetizers. I can't wait to try the “No Manners Needed Chocolate Cake” recipe.

    Food is pivotal in the Hunger Games trilogy as the characters are either struggling or feasting and food is a completely different character to get to know in the trilogy. Rockridge Press’s Catching Fire Cookbook allows readers to do just that providing recipes inspired by the trilogy. Be it entrée or dessert, the food in the book is another part of the trilogy worth exploring.

    For anyone who is a fan of The Hunger Games trilogy, this is a must-have for their kitchen!  In an unusual twist on the standard cookbook, this makes cooking interesting and fun again.  The reader also gets a great review of the plot and characters as a small detail is revealed before each recipe.  It goes further to state how that particular recipe may have been prepared and served, and whether it would have been well-received. It's a real page-turner, and also gives a glimpse of just how much good food is and should be appreciated.  This would be fun to present to a group of your friends with a suggestion for a progressive dinner party.  And who wouldn't appreciate receiving this during the holiday season? There are recipes and menus designed especially for kids; the whole book provides a fun read as well as a great learning experience.

    With all the popularity of the Hunger Games trilogy, it is interesting that someone would think to create and compile recipes reminiscent of the foods consumed in the trilogies' various settings. But this is exactly what the reader will find in Catching Fire Cookbook. Whether for fun or daily survival, bringing these recipes to life will draw the reader closer to what the Hunger Games' characters experienced.

    If you’re a fan of The Hunger Games, enjoy trying unusual recipes, or just love reading cookbooks, then this is for you. From Juicy Chocolate Citrus Cake to hearty Haymitch-Inspired Cabbage Casserole to the disturbing - yet intriguing - Burnt Tree Rat, there is something for everyone, including suggested substitutions. The only things that aren’t here are photos and consistent directions but get this interesting cookbook anyway.

    This book appealed to me because instead of simply reciting the book and tossing in a few irrelevant recipes, it pulled me back into the world of Panem. In addition to making you want to read the Hunger Games trilogy all over again (for what’s likely your second or third read-through), you’ll have an excuse to try every single recipe the book has to offer. I’m especially excited to attempt the Jewel-Colored Mosaic Gelatin; it looks difficult enough to impress my friends, but simple enough that it won’t take me all day to make.
