  GIVEAWAY ENDED 
THE UNOFFICIAL 
HUNGER GAMES COOKBOOK
BY EMILY ANSARA BAINES
ABOUT THE BOOK:
When it comes to The Hunger Games, staying alive means finding food any way possible. Katniss and Gale hunt live game, Peeta's family survives on the bread they make, and the inhabitants of the Seam work twelve-hour days for a few handfuls of grain--all while the residents of the Capitol gorge themselves on delicacies and desserts to the heart's desire.
For the first time, you will be able to create delicious recipes from the humble District 12 to the extravagant Capital, including:
  • French Bread from the Mellark Family Bakery
  • Katniss's Favorite Lamb Stew with Dried Plums
  • Rue's Roasted Parsnips
  • Gale's Bone-Pickin' Big Game Soup
  • Capitol-Grade Dark Chocolate Cake
If you're starving for more from Katniss, Peeta, and Gale, this cookbook is sure to whet your appetite!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Emily Ansara Baines's short stories have appeared in Narrative literary magazine and AngeLingo. She graduated with honors from the University of Southern California where she studied creative writing under Aimee Bender and T.C. Boyle. One day Emily will live in Paris and speak French while wearing a beret, but these days she makes do with navigating the streets of Los Angeles. Her favorite word is murmur.

I'd like to win this one because it sounds like it has some delicious recipes in it. The lamb stew recipe sounds great and the Dark Chocolate cake, yum.

Joan said...

I haven't read any of the Hunger Game books but I'd heard so much about them I just might have to see what all the hupla is about.

Joan said...

I haven't saw the movie yet but since it was filmed in NC and I live here I think I will have to see it at some point.

It seems a little ironic to have a cookbook based on the hunger games books. It does sound interesting,though.
