“A frothy pink soup dotted with raspberries.”

-The Hunger Games; Catching Fire, Suzanne Collins

I was fascinated by the Hunger Games party scene at President Snow’s mansion in Catching Fire (nightsky for a ceiling? uh-mazing) and the end result of this fascination? A free unofficial Hunger Games party planner based on this scene. You can download the planner below the recipe, but here’s a sample of one of the recipes. With summer practically here, a raspberry soup is currently my favourite.
