The Hunger Games – Food Inspired from the Characters and Districts

The Hunger Games Inspired Food from characters and DistrictsA selection of Hunger Games food ideas that are perfect for a book club or themed party. District Twelve will be proud.

I’m the epitome of a Young Adult fangirl. The Hunger Games is one of my favorite series. I’m a sucker for a dystopian trilogy. Divergent being my other favorite. Being in Atlanta I’m able to experience The Hunger Games at a whole new level because the movies were filmed here. One of my favorite spots is the Swan House which you may know as President Snow’s home. The extravagant party that was held on the front lawn for Catching Fire, just amazing. There is a great day-long tour that I went on called the Hunger Games Unofficial Fan Tours here in Atlanta where we got to discover District Twelve, The Arena, and President Snow’s mansion. We also got to play Archery Tag which was a blast! But what I loved about the day was how much thought they had put into all the little details, like lunch! Hunger Games District Twelve food

It was an “authentic” District Twelve meal, or at least what you would expect someone from District Twelve with limited food sources would eat. It included a crescent roll, cherry tomatoes, Prim’s goat cheese wrapped in basil, trail mix, jerky, watermelon, and mint salad. It looks light but it is actually the perfect sized meal. I placed the chess, basil, and tomatoes in the roll and ate it like a sandwich. Hunger Games Nightshade BerriesWe also got a snack before we went inside the Swan House, Nightshade (should be Nightlock) berries (blueberries) and a white rose from President Snow. It was perfect. Hunger Games Catching Fire Capital ChocolatesFor our special tour, we were treated to something extra special. William Dean Chocolates, the same chocolates that appeared during the party at President Snow’s home. Aren’t they beautiful? You can order your own too on the William Dean website.

Their presentation of the food was also amazing. I started with the District Twelve’s, which were Basil wrapped goat cheese bites. Goat cheese drizzled roast garlic and orange, topped with fresh cracked pepper, sea salt, red peppers and served with grilled ciabatta.
