It’s unsurprising that The Hunger Games has a lot of references to food; mainly when the contestants are tempted with delicious fare from the Capitol. When they’re not participating in the Games, they’re eating foraged food. Either way, there’s a lot of food in The Hunger Games; here’s how to make some of the most tempting sounding dishes.
Katniss has a silky mushroom soup for dinner after being presented to the Capitol. Make it using this recipe.
Lamb Stew Recipe
Lamb stew is Katniss’ favourite delicacy along with fresh rolls, goat’s cheese and apples. She loves it on wild rice; try your own with this recipe.
Make the delicious sounding chicken with orange which Cinna shows Katniss. It’s described as “chicken and chunks of oranges cooked in a creamy sauce” – try making it using this recipe.
Katniss forages for ingredients the day before the Reaping and finds dish, greens and strawberries. Her family uses them to make a stew: “The fish and greens are already cooking in a stew, but that will be for supper. We decide to save the strawberries and bakery bread for this evening’s meal, to make it special we say.” Make that stew with this recipe.
Peeta makes Katniss some bread and then burns it on purpose so he’s allowed to give it to her. Recreate the bread with this recipe, but be sure not to burn it.
