Cookbook Reveal – The Star Wars Cookbook: Wookiee Cookies and Other Galactic Recipes

A brief overview of the cookbook I’ll be reviewing this month: The Star Wars Cookbook: Wookiee Cookies and Other Galactic Recipes.

No comments

I know very few people who don’t like Star Wars.  Especially with the new films focusing more on female characters, the series appeals to pretty much everyone.  That’s likely why this cookbook is so popular!

Numerous other Star Wars-themed cookbooks have been released since this one, but if you google “Star Wars Cookbook” this one will still pop up first.

About Star Wars:

Do you really not already know what Star Wars is about?  Really?  Well, just in case, here’s a quick summary:

Star Wars started as a film series, but has since grown to include television shows, comic books, video games, and so much more. From what I can tell based on my first look through this cookbook, the recipes are based on the first few films (Episodes 4-6) only, so I’ll just tell you about those ones.  Otherwise we could be here forever!

The original 3-part series was released in the late 70s and early 80s.  While it does look a little dated, the films actually hold up quite well over time!  Set in “a galaxy far, far away,” it follows Luke Skywalker as he discovers and develops his Jedi powers while simultaneously doing everything he can to stop the evil Empire, led by the infamous Darth Vader.  Luke joins up with a pilot named Han Solo, his sidekick Chewbacca (a “Wookiee”), Princess Leia, and a couple of entertaining robots to get the job done.

About the Cookbook:

This cookbook is not like the other ones I’ve reviewed so far.  First of all, it’s aimed at a younger crowd (around ages 8-12).  It’s also a parody cookbook – the recipes are not actually from the films themselves, but instead are based on the show.  Many are actually shaped to look like characters or objects from the films, while others just have a play on words in the title.

The book is made to be kid-friendly.  All of the pages are laminated, so you can spill all you want on this thing and you’ll be able to clean it up just fine.  The pictures include photos of the completed dishes with Star Wars toys & figurines, and the recipes themselves actually seem pretty simple and straight forward to follow.

All in all it does look and feel cheaper than most other cookbooks, but it’s definitely ideal for young chefs.
