It's 'Hunger Games' Weekend! Celebrate With The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook

So you dutifully waited in line for midnight debut with a homemade bow and arrow and a side-braid. Why stop there? This is "Hunger Games" weekend, people! Paint your shoes. Paint your nails. Then, when you get hungry, cook up a dish from The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook

New York chef Emily Ansara Baines created the recipes after going through the Hunger Games and highlighting every reference of food. " could be something as simple as an apple growing from a tree (which of course Katniss and the other members of her District would pick for food!) or a side condiment. Then I typed up the quote and page number in a word document, and then, and only then, did I start cooking up some recipes," she told

The book features recipes such as Katniss's Favorite Lamb Stew with Dried Plums, Rue's Roasted Parsnips, Gale's Bone-Pickin' Big Game Soup and Capitol-Grade Dark Chocolate Cake.

Feeling the Hunger already.
