"Here's some advice. Stay alive." --Haymitch Abernathy

When it comes to The Hunger Games, staying alive means finding food any way possible.

  • French Bread from the Mellark Family Bakery
  • Katniss's Favorite Lamb Stew with Dried Plums

  • Capitol-Grade Dark Chocolate Cake

If you're starving for more from Katniss, Peeta, and Gale, this cookbook is sure to whet your appetite!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"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 meat....fans 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

"Forget Katniss' hunting bow--you won't go hungry like the folks at District 12 if you've got this cookbook handy! Consider it a gastronomic tour of the futuristic dystopian saga, taking you from the humble tables of Katniss' forlorn home district to the lavish banquets of the Capitol." - E! Online

    Wow.......

    I'm sure this cookbook is amazing! If you think Suzanne Collins is desprate, it's probably because you read the first page and thought, "Oh, this is so weird! What is going on?" and closed the book. Well, this book was recommended to me by a close friend, who I trust, so I went back and read the book. It was incredible. I was speechless. I read the whole series in less than a month. It's not just about death. It goes so much deeper. Please read this book. It will change your perspective on life. I am just ten and I loved this book dearly.

    Stop arguing children. this is a place for reviews about the boo

    Stop arguing children. this is a place for reviews about the book, not for you to do some petty squabbling. the author of this book is doing one thing. working. This book is for someone to make a living and is riding the tidal wave of success this series has begun. i have read the first book in the hunger games trilogy. i found that book to be a little predictable; however, the characters and interactions make it a no brainer five star book. its aimed at teens and can entertain any mature enough audience. this cook book is based on many items discussed, and imagined no doubt and im sure will be fun for everyone who enjoys this mega hit series. expect to see hunger games parties, even though it seems disturbing to be like the folks from the capitol lmao.

    Really?

    It says 'unofficial' which means that Suzanne Collins, who probably has so much money that she could never in a million years spend all of it, did NOT create this. So stop judging her; she is an amazing author who doesn't deserve to be accused of crap like that.

    I thought this was a neat add to go along with the books! I definitely recommend it to anyone :D

    To the "not mean" person a few posts below, honestly you're right, you're not mean, you're just rude. Just because you don't like the series doesn't give you permission to slander those who do. You're 100% entitled to your opinion, but putting others down while you do is just pathetic on your part. If it's so stupid why waste your time even writing a review?
