Hunger Games Food
It’s finally here! The video demo for Katniss’ favorite dish from The Capitol: lamb stew with dried plums. Rachael from Schemestresses adapted the recipe from The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook, and makes a great point about Collins calling prunes ‘dried plums’ in the book. Lamb stew with prunes just doesn’t sound as appetizing right?
Let us know if you cook up this, or any other Hunger Games inspired dishes, to celebrate the movie coming out.
This week Julianna and Natasha, of Cinema & Spice, have shared two more recipes that are on their Hunger Games dinner party menu: Haymitch’s Smashed Potatoes and The Capitol’s Finest Lamb Chops. I don’t think you’d ever catch Haymitch cooking, but he inspired the potatoes because they are ‘smashed’ like him. I also bet they’ll go great with the lamb chops that were part of the meal on the train to The Capitol. Check out the Haymitch inspired dish below, followed by the lamb chop one after the break:
Unfortunately we won’t be seeing Finnick Odair in the Hunger Games movie, so we’ll have to wait for Catching Fire to come out. In the mean time we can bake up District 4′s bread to get a reminder of him thanks to Rachael, from Schemestresses, and the Unofficial ‘Hunger Games’ Cookbook:
Actress Kristen Bell had a Hunger Games themed birthday party, and now with the help of a new video series from Cinema and Spice you can throw your Hunger Games dinner party. Each week a new dinner item either inspired by something or someone from the book will be released. The below video is a teaser goes over the entire menu:
I love how Julianna and Natasha are dressed like Katniss and Effie for the cooking demos. It makes me wonder if their party guests will show dressed up like other characters. Check out their first cooking video featuring Peeta’s Family Biscuits and keep an eye out for the others that are on the way.

Check out this new Hunger Games cooking video from Schemetresses on how to make the apple sauce that District 12 enjoyed on parcel day:
It looks fairly easy to make, and you don’t need a lot of fancy equipment either. Also, kudos to Brittnee to admitting to pronouncing Peeta wrong in her last demo. Mistakes happen and the fans get that. If I was being filmed, I’d be nervous might mess up a name or two too.
Another week means another Schemestresses ‘Hungry for Hunger Games’ cooking demo. This is an original recipe for rolls that pair with last week’s hot chocolate, so you can enjoy the delicious drink the same way Peeta did on the train to The Capitol.
I thought the way that Rachael made the rolls so they were easily pulled apart was really neat, as I’ve never seen that technique done before. Also, love that Rachael designed the Mellark Bakery shirt she’s wearing. Maybe we’ll see one for ‘The House of Cinna’ or ‘Coal Certified from the Seam’? Just some fun thoughts. Hope you were all able to get tickets to the Hunger Games movie and happy cooking!
Perfect on a cold day, check out The Capitol hot chocolate recipe demoed by Brittnee adapted from The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook.
Yes, I know that she might have pronounce Peeta incorrectly, but Brittnee is filling in so let’s give her a pass on this one. Also, I think that the lamb stew will be coming up in an episode soon, as Rachael tweeted a picture of it cooking! Is anyone else as excited as I am by this? I’ll keep an eye out for it so we can all learn how to make Katniss’s favorite Capitol dish.

This week Rachael from Schemestresses give us recipe adaptation of The Capitol’s pasta with green sauce from The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook. It doesn’t come out super green, but I bet The Capitol has a pasta dish like it amongst its thousand of recipes. Check it out below:

I’m a little behind, but here’s last weeek’s original Hunger Games recipe from the Schemestresses. This time Jill is making the “creamy pumpkin brew sprinkled with slivered nuts and tiny black seeds” mentioned in Catching Fire using an original recipe. Check it out below.

This week we get another original Hunger Games recipe from Schemestresses as Rachel shows us how to make the crescent shaped bread of District 11. It has a lot more ingredients than previous recipes, but don’t let that scare you because the method looks pretty simple.
For some reason I always imagined the District 11 loaves being smaller, like the size of croissants, but this recipe will make enough to share with your friends. I also like how Rachel uses honey instead of white sugar, as it makes sense that the people in District 11 might not have access to expensive refined sugar. This recipe was also entered in the Hunger Games recipe contest, and you can see all of the entries for it here.
