Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge Cookbook Review

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge Cookbook Review | Anakin and His Angel

The publishing company, Insight Editions, was kind enough to send me a copy of the recently released Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook which is now available to order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Target for under $30.

The book is written by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Marc Sumerak with artwork by Joel Hustak and photography by Ted Thomas. Trust me when I tell you that there are more galactic-inspired foods inside this book than you could ever imagine, ranging from snacks and soups to main courses and desserts. There are one hundred and seventy-five pages to be exact so you'll be kept busy for quite some time! I've already bookmarked a few items that I'm highly interested in making myself. Perhaps I'll even share what I make with you!

I was surprised to discover a lot about Batuu that I didn't know about in this cookbook. Prior to diving into the recipes, we meet Strono Tuggs (aka Cookie) who is part of the Artiodac species. Cookie used to be the head chef at Maz's castle on Takodana but once The First Order destroyed it, Cookie purchased a freighter that he began loading up with fresh food items and cooking appliances. If you're wondering if his freighter, the Sienar-Chall Utilipede Transport, is the one above Docking Bay 7 - that's it! He now offers his talents to the inhabitants of various star systems throughout the galaxy, and a lot of the time that's Batuu! He especially loves Docking Bay 7 but we also get unique looks at other places like Kat Sakka's Kettle through Cookie's eyes. It's going to be fun traveling back to Batuu again now that I have gained more insight into the places to order food and drinks from.

Being able to say that I now own recipes for a Ronto Wrap that's similar to the ones sold at Ronto's Roasters (the owner, Bakkar, wasn't too keen on sharing the family's secret spice blend with Cookie), and a refreshing drink called the Hyperdrive that you can order at Oga's Cantina, is pretty cool if you ask me! I love being able to have the means to taste the incredible flavors of Batuu in my home. Each recipe features an appetizing photo, a description of where it originated from, what it tastes like, and all of the ingredients you need to make it along with the instructions. I've never owned a cookbook before so this is a new thing for me, but I'm honestly a fan!

This book would make a great gift for any Star Wars fan who also loves to try new foods and drinks. It'll be a fun experience to make some of these myself and with family and friends. The recipes will obviously be great options for any Star Wars parties that you have coming up too!

If you're interested in expanding your own menu and giving it an extra edge from our favorite new corner of the galaxy, I hope that my review of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook has helped to show why this one is worth a look.
