  • More than a cookbook

    By Joy33MI
    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.
  • Fun Cookbook!

    By JoanneSil
    As a fan of the Hunger Games I thought it would be fun to throw a Hunger Games themed 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!

  • A unique cooking experience

    By Elizagape
    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.
  • Catching Unique Eats with Catching Fire

    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.
  • another dimension for hunger games fans!

    By jellymerry
    When I was a pre-teen I cherished a book of recipes for foods described in C.S. Lewis' The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. That book, like 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. I have not read the Hunger Games, but this book taught me about the primal world of the series. 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. The most revelatory recipes contain exotic ingredients caught by Katniss: squirrels, beaver, and goat to name a few. The recipes in this chapter are fun to read and would make for a good party.
  • Playful collection of Hunger Games edibles

    By Aljkittycatk2
    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.
  • Try Something New

    By Trist McD
    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.
  • Entertaining Cuisine

    By Ghostwriter427
    What makes this collection truly unique is, firstly, the fun the authors obviously had putting it together, but secondly, the extreme 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.
