Prepare your taste buds for a flavor experience that will take you to a galaxy far, far away!
To commemorate the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at both Disneyland (now open) and Disney World Resorts (opening August 29), Insight Editions is releasing a Star Wars-themed cookbook written by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel (the author behind the official Game of Thrones cookbook) and comic book writer Marc Sumerak.
According to the Disney Parks blog, the book is told from the perspective of Strono “Cookie” Tuggs, the former head chef at Maz Kanata’s castle on Takodana. In the book, Tuggs opens up about his decades of travel, research, and cooking across the galaxies, including running his own food freighter, Tugg’s Grib.
Much of Tuggs’s experience has been spent working at the Black Spire Outpost, the village featured in the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge attractions. Black Spire is a remote stop for smugglers, traders, and travelers from every corner of the Star Wars universe.
And with that kind of diversity comes a plethora of unique cuisines, all of which are included in the cookbook.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Cookbook will be out in November 2019, just in time to purchase as a holiday gift for the Force-wielding foodies in your life. You can preorder it for $35 on Amazon now.
