PHOTOS, VIDEO: Take a Look Inside The Immersive “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook”

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

“Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook” is a culinary guide devoted to the stories and cuisine found in Disney Parks’ Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The cookbook was released in November 2019 and is written from the perspective of Strono “Cookie” Tuggs, the former head chef at Maz Kanata’s castle on Takodana.

With an immersive narrative that doesn’t break character, it is much more than your average Disney Parks cookbook. The recipes each have a unique story of their own, featuring whole foods and cooking traditions passed down through the generations of families in the Star Wars universe.

Back in December, the WDW News Tonight team actually prepared a few of the recipes during our Give Kids the World marathon show. But here, we’d like to bring focus to the book itself.

The book is hardcover and filled with glossy pages of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge recipes.

It is coauthored by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Marc Sumerak. Monroe-Cassel is author to several medieval fantasy-themed cookbooks and brings the narrative side of the book to life. Sumerak is a storyteller himself, whose work includes a few Marvel-themed books.

At the start of the article, we mentioned Chef Tuggs, the former head chef at Maz Kanata’s castle. Throughout each of the recipes, you’ll see an introduction that highlights his knowledge of the galaxy’s culinary delights — acquired through decades of travel and research.

sadly this cookbook does not have all park accurate recipes. but I do suggest looking up on allears for any park recipes straight for the chef and sous chefs

I have the cookbook and it’s a lot of fun and very high quality. Unfortunately a lot of the food is nothing like that of the parks. In the book the Ronto Roaster is like a tomato based mince meat rather than sausage in peppercorn. It’s like the recipes in the book were designed before the ones for the park.
