“So, Katniss…what’s impressed you most since you arrived here?” asks Caesar….“The lamb stew,” I get out. Caesar laughs, and vaguely I realize some of the audience has joined in. “The one with the dried plums?” asks Caesar. I nod. “Oh, I eat it by the bucketful” ~ The Hunger Games

[/toggle][toggle title=”How is this a Hunger Games-inspired dinner?“]Each dish is based on an actual quote from The Hunger Games books. For example, Katniss encounters the cream pumpkin brew during her Victory Tour:
My resolve is almost immediately broken at the first table, which has twenty or so soups, when I encounter a creamy pumpkin brew sprinkled with slivered nuts and tiny black seeds. “I could just eat this all night!” I exclaim.
