Not convinced? Here are a few reasons why The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook is worth checking out.

2. You’ll be able to recreate your favorite Hunger Games treats in your own kitchen.
With ingredient lists and step-by-step recipes, you’ll be able to cook like Katniss, bake like Peeta and recreate all of the treats loved by the citizens of Panem. All you need is to go and pick up everything you need…or hunt it with your bow and arrow. (If you can get your own personal Gale to get for you, even better!)
3. It’s an interesting read even if you don’t cook.
Not only is this a great cookbook, but it is also a great literary companion to the book series. With intros that cleverly link dishes to various characters and events, it’s fun just to see how integral food is to the story of The Hunger Games.
