Though there's not much time to linger on it in the movie, one of the best parts of reading The Hunger Games is the descriptions of food, particularly the lavish meals Katniss encounters when she arrives in the Capitol. One of the best, and Katniss's favorite, is a stew of lamb and plums that she devours to build up her strength before the Games, and cites to Caesar Flickerman as the thing she likes best about the Capitol. The stew doesn't make it into the movie-- tragedy!-- but thanks to our own Amy DeLine, you can recreate it for yourself at home after seeing The Hunger Games this weekend.
Over at her food blog The Gourmand Mom, Amy posted a recipe for Moroccan-Style Lamb Stew with Dried Plums, making a hearty and gorgeous-looking dish with the exotic flavors you imagine they favor in the Capitol. Click on the photo of the lamb dish below to see the full recipe, or get a taste of what she's bringing to the table with this excerpt from her post below. If you're a little turned off by the idea of putting prunes in the stew, so was Amy-- but as it turns out, we all should trust Katniss's taste in this one.
