To celebrate the release of the Hunger Games movie (and because Katniss's preferred dish contains our favorite fruit, Dried Plums), we are proud to launch our Hunger Games Recipe Contest.

While reading the Hunger Games Trilogy, how many of you also found yourself wondering what the foods of Panem tasted like? Lamb Stew with Dried Plums over wild Rice, Goat Cheese wrapped in fresh Basil, Clear Green Broth that tastes like springtime – hungry yet?
