“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.
- 2 cups raspberries
- ½ cup white sugar
- ⅔ cup white wine
- ½ cup water
- ⅔ cup sour cream
- 4-6 mint leaves
- ½ cup thickened cream
- Mix all ingredients except the sour cream in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until simmering. Lower heat and add sour cream. Blend with hand held blender. Remove from heat and refrigerate for 2 hours. If you want the soup to be frothy, blend again before serving.
- Place cream in saucepan over low heat. Stir in torn mint leaves. Let the cream warm, but don’t let it boil. Remove from stove. Use a pipette to neatly create a swirl of this mint cream in the soup. Dot with raspberries and serve.
