Unofficial Hunger Games And Game Of Thrones Cookbooks Giveaway

The Hunger Games and Game of Thrones are on everyone’s mind right now, and I have a cool giveaway for the fan or your life… or you, of course.

Two cookbooks have hit recently, and more than just a great gift idea, they’re really interesting efforts, with some great ideas. The Game of Thrones book even includes an assortment of alcoholic beverages.

The Hunger Games book features a wide variety of foods, from lamb stew, and other offerings that might be on the menu in District 12, to the delicacies and delights of the capitol. The book also has a nicely broad range of the simple and the complicated, and it’s put together in an eye-pleasing format.

The Game of Thrones book leans a lot more toward things like venison, grilled pork chops, and meat pies, but also mixes in breads, treats, and other items to create variety.

The cynical might suspect that we’ve just slapped some themed names onto recipes, and that may be partially true, but most of the entries have some kind of spin that makes them unique, and actually connects them to the title. Beyond that, the combination of entries isn’t something you’re going to find anywhere else, and grilled pork chops are grilled pork chops, but interesting meat pies are a different story, and some of these recipes include… well, more interesting game.

I’m nothing like a legitimate critic of cookbooks, but I know what sounds good, and these books both offer up more than 150 recipes, most of which really look tempting. They also combine for some great meals, and will make for some great parties.

Check out some more info below, and then enter to win.
