Game of Thrones & Hunger Games... Cookbooks?

Planning a viewing party for the upcoming season premier of Game of Thrones? How about dinner before you head off the the theater to check out the Hunger Games movie? How about some grub that matches the flavor (ahem) of the on screen action?

If you're in the market for something to prepare for that magical night, Adams Media has a few suggestions for you.

Both the Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook and the Unofficial Game of Thrones Cookbook are absolutely packed to the gills with recipes. From the hallowed halls of King's Landing and House Stark in Westeros all the way to the feasting rooms of the mysterious Capitol in the world of the Hunger Games, you're sure to make yourself smile at some of these concoctions.

Eat like a Lannister. Brew spirits to warm you in the coming winter. Treat guests to exotic sweets and alchemy-inspired cocktails. With this collection of hearty meals inspired by George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, it's all possible! Every dish finds its roots in the pages that brought Westeros to life, including:
  • Arbor Red Wine--the finest spirit in the Seven Kingdoms
  • The House of Stark's Venison, Apple, Cheddar Plaits--savory meat pies, fit for any Warden of the North
  • The Imp's Wild Strawberry Fool--a dessert light enough to make Tyrion smile
  • Wilding Grilled Pork Chops with Stir-Grilled Apples--the meal of choice at Craster's Keep
  • Tears of Lys--the concoction of choice for bartenders and assassins alike

While the residents of The Hunger Games trilogy’s Capitol gorge themselves on delicacies and desserts to their heart's desire, the humble districts fight for sustenance: 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. The Victory Feast of The Hunger Games is the true reward for the ultimate fight for survival - filled with course upon course of delicious delicacies, rich stews, savory meats, and mouthwatering desserts! From these extravagant meals of the Capital, to the poor, but deliciously creative District 12, The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook collects recipes from the popular trilogy, including Katniss’s favorite lamb stew, French bread from the Mellark family bakery, and the decadent Capitol-Grade Dark Chocolate Cake.
 If you're starving for more from Katniss, Peeta, and Gale, this cookbook is sure to whet your appetite!
