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 Aug. 29), Insight Editions is releasing a Star Wars-themed cookbook written by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel, author bestselling cookbooks, and award-nominated writer Marc Sumerak.
Disney Parks Blog reports that the book is told from the perspective of the former head chef at Maz Kanata’s castle on Takodana, Strono “Cookie” Tuggs. 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’ experience has been spent working at the Black Spire Outpost, where Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set at the parks. 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 included in the cookbook.
