Introducing Panem Kitchen

Panem Kitchen was born from two things: a love of Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy, and a desire to live simply.

We have always been of the opinion that food should be as simple and true to its ingredients as possible, with minimal processing. While we have the luxury of making this choice, the residents of Panem were forced into frugality and simplicity of living by their political situation. So while there is some irony in a cooking website revolving around a fictional country where the majority of the populace is struggling to find where their next meal will come from … the culinary world of Panem is too rich to go untouched.

Each District has its own distinct regional cuisine that hearkens back to the days when the country was still the United States, and while there are some recipes that overlap, there is a different take on it in each of the 14 regions of Panem, from the Capitol to District 13. This is what we wanted to expand upon. The recipes of Panem Kitchen are meant to be basic, easy, and made from readily available ingredients, as they would have to be for the District residents.

We hope that you will enjoy exploring Panem through its cuisine.
