We love The Hunger Games at Garlic, My Soul, and we also love Fanboy Comics. And, as you know from our Katniss' Lamb Stew, we also love The Katniss Chronicles, which was why we were thrilled to create another recipe for the series!
This Savory Apple Tart is straight from The Hunger Games. Peeta mentions it to Katniss, in a scene when you realize that even the baker's family didn't have an easy life. We made it into more of a galette, which seems to fit with the country lifestyle of District 12, rather than a dainty tart.
