About The Book
Who doesn’t love a good puzzle? And what sounds more satisfying than being able to eat your results afterwards? If you’ve ever tried cooking, you will be all too familiar with how puzzling certain recipes can be—from figuring out proper techniques to deciphering improper instructions. So why not make a game out of it?
In Hungry Games, former food editor Kate Heddings embarks on a journey to turn her recipe challenges into a game of recipe rehab, testing the skills of cooks who know it all by finding mistakes intentionally inserted into each recipe. Ranging from easy to difficult, these recipes contain both cooking mistakes (time, temp, quantities) editorial mistakes (out of order ingredients, spelling mistakes, etc.), and brings some fun back to cooking. Paired with traditional food-themed crossword puzzles and word search games, Hungry Games is perfect for every avid cook or puzzle fan—and gives the phrase “playing with your food” new meaning.

Raves and Reviews
“Perhaps the most unique spin on a cookbook for this holiday season is Hungry Games: A Delicious Book of Recipe Repairs, Word Searches & Crosswords for the Food Lover, essentially a cookbook of 50 recipes that each contain 10 mistakes for the reader to find. These ‘puzzles’ are ranked in difficulty from easy (such as an apple crumble pie that instructs the baker to toss the apples with pears) to hard (a peach galette that says to mix water with red wine vinegar to make the dough, when it should actually be white distilled vinegar). Luckily there’s an answer key to check your culinary skill, as well as lots of food-themed crosswords and word searches. The result is an unusual and fun gift for the foodie who has everything.”—Bookpage
