What Katniss and Peeta Ate Wednesday in Catching Fire

The Hunger Games Catching Fire Recipe Round-Up

Oh yes I did. In honor of the Catching Fire premiere at the end of this week, I have assembled the ultimate WIAW featuring What Katniss and Peeta Ate Wednesday in Catching Fire:


District 12 

Greasy Sae’s Stew (Chapter 1)

Greasy Sae's Stew is famous for containing meat of questionable origins and even though Katniss can now afford more expensive meals since winning the Hunger Games, this is still one of her favorites.

Tea and iced sugar cookies (Chapter 2)


When President Snow comes to visit Katniss before she leaves for her Victory Tour Katniss’s mother brings in sugar cookies ice by Peeta and some tea for the President to have.


Lamb Stew with Dried Plums (Chapter 4)

Hunger Games Lamb Stew

While on the train the attendants try to please Katniss by serving her favorite meals.

Hot Chocolate (Chapter 4)


Hot chocolate is another thing that is served on the train during the Victory Tour.

President Snow’s Mansion

Creamy Pumpkin Brew (Chapter 6)


Pumpkin Stew is one of the first foods that Katniss tries at President Snow’s mansion at the conclusion of the Victory Tour.

Frothy Raspberry Soup (Chapter 6)


This chilled soup is another soup that is served at President Snow’s party.

Capital 12

Fresh Bread (Chapter 10)


Peeta always has freshly baked bread to give to Katniss’s family. Katniss gives some to the runaways that she finds while hunting.


Warm Milk and Honey (Chapter 14)


Not being able to sleep, Katniss and Peeta watch a video of the Hunger Games while drinking some warm honey and milk that one of the train attendants made for them.

Training Center/Capitol

Sugar Cubes (Chapter 15)


Katniss first meets Finnick after the past victors are introduced, where he is eating sugar cubes by the handful meant for the horses.

Picnic (Chapter 17)


On the last night before going into their second Hunger Games Katniss and Peeta have a picnic on the roof of the training center.

Quarter Quells

Roasted Nuts (Chapter 20)


At first thinking they are poisonous Katniss tells Mags to spit out the nuts, but then she discovers that they are quite safe and taste like chestnuts when roasted against the force field that surrounds the arena.

Seaweed Bread (chapter 22)


The seaweed in this bread represents Finnick’s district and was a present during the games.

Spicy Red Sauce (chapter 25)


This spicy red sauce was a present from District 3.

Oysters (chapter 25)


Caught by Finnick, these oysters are the final meal of the competitors before they head into the jungle to finish their plan.


Don’t forget to check out all of the other WIAW link-ups today for some incredible meals and recipes!

It is currently way past my bedtime and I can assure you that I will be sleeping into about 7:00 tomorrow morning. Don’t be concerned if you don’t see many comments/responses from me for a little while because I have a huge sales presentation on Thursday that I need to get working on!

I hope you have a Happy Wednesday! 🙂


Questions for you: 

Are you going to watch Catching Fire? 

Which recipe would you be most interested (or not interested!) in trying?

Have you ever been inspired to make something after reading about it in a book?

  1. This. Post. Is. Awesome.

    It reminds me of a cookbook I saw which had recipes from a Tv series…maybe Game of Thrones?

    I read all the books but I must admit, they progressively got worse! I’m yet to watch any of the movies, but if I had to pick a dish, it would be the hot chocolate. For some reason, it hit home whenever they drank it!

    • Haha. Thank. You. Arman.

      I would love to get a cookbook based off of a tv show or movie! I think they actually have one for the first Hunger Games so maybe they’ll make one for this too?

      We have such differing opinions on books and tv shows! I loved all of the books. However, the first movie was just alright. Not bad or good. The acting was awesome, but the cinematography? Not so much. Here’s to a new director for Catching Fire!

  2. OMG I love that you did this it is so so awesome!!! 🙂

    I think any of the stews would be good but even the toasted nuts sound good.

    When I read the book Chocolat by Joanne Harris it made me want to try all the things she described in it for sure!

    • I feel like I have been waiting for Catching Fire to come out forever! I just love the plot of the book and can’t wait to see how it is going to play out on screen. As for the first movie, I thought it was good overall, but I have a feeling the sequel is going to be even better!

  3. This is amazing. I love how thorough you are! Roasted nuts…hot chocolate…the picnic. I love all of this!
    Maybe not the same but after watching Game of Thrones I was really keen to drink red wine as that’s all they seemed to be drinking. One glass and it was a no go. Just not my thing. I remember reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and just wanting to try everything. Especially the river of chocolate….omg.

  4. Can’t wait for the movie!! I think a cookbook based on a book/movie (or the universe of said book/movie) would be awesome! That’s kind of what this post reminds me of anyways, and now I really want to go and write a Hobbit cookbook 🙂

  5. Oh girl, this was just awesome! And it made me even more excited to see Catching Fire. I have to admit that I wasn’t the biggest fan of the first movie, so I’m hoping they put a little more effort into the second one.

    And right now? The milk and honey drink sounds soooo comforting for a cold night.

  6. So wait, let me ask you a question: Are you going to see The Hunger Games on Friday? LMFAOOOOOOO!!!!! Of course you are. You’ll probably be there at Midnight Thursday? Am I right???

    Don’t get mad at me, but I have never read the books/seen the movies. And the first time I ever heard about it, I thought it was a movie about… Eating Disorders!!!!! 😮


  7. Oh my gosh this is AMAZING!!! I am almost done listening to the second book and I can’t WAIT to see the movie! I need to re-watch the first one too. Wow, I am just in awe of the amazingness of this post! Let’s go see the movie together!
