Indulge in a galaxy of delectable treats with the Star Wars Life Day Cookbook – coming this November!
A cargo hold of delightful dishes awaits us in the latest cookbook from a galaxy far, far away… introducing The Star Wars Life Day Cookbook: Official Holiday Recipes From a Galaxy Far, Far Away.
We love a cookbook here at Future Of The Force. Especially a Star Wars cookbook. But when you throw the words “Life Day” into the mix we stand up and salivate in preparation for a galaxy of tasty treats. So, with our palettes suitably whetted, Lucasfilm has shared some juicy new details about this highly-anticipated volume. And they are sure to get you in the mood for a little kitchen TLC. And no, we don’t mean TaunTaun Liver Casserole!
OFFICIAL HOLIDAY RECIPES
Each recipe has been collected by Chef Strono Tuggs. A.k.a. Cookie, Maz Kanata’s one-time head chef now serving up delicacies on Batuu, and written for our galaxy by StarWars.com contributor Jenn Fujikawa and Marc Sumerak.
Life Day comes but once a year. And this November you’ll be ready to serve up a mouth-watering bantha stew, delicious bantha milk hot cocoa, and a special mudhorn eggnog that’s out of this world. Feast your eyes on just a few of the tasty treats filling the pages of this wonderful volume:
On a visit to Arvala-7 awhile back, I was barterin’ with some Jawas over a slightly used hypersonic oven when somethin’ far more interestin’ caught my eye. Although those pint-size pack rats usually deal in scavenged tech, they happened to be in possession of an item that was unmistakably organic—a big, furry egg unlike anythin’ I had ever seen before. Turns out, it was from a local beast called a mudhorn, and the Jawas prized it as a rare delicacy. Never got that oven I came for, but I did manage to leave their sandcrawler with that egg. It cost me an entire cargo pod full of random appliances, but as soon as I cracked open its yolky center, I knew it was worth it. The egg became the perfect base for a thick, frothy batch of this nog, which kept me merry through an entire season.
Bantha Milk Hot Chocolate
Sometimes our journeys take turns that we never saw comin’. As a seasoned chef, I always believed my reputation would be tied to what I put on a plate. Not what I poured into a glass. But after I released my first batch of recipes into the galaxy, my signature Bantha Chai quickly became one of my most-viewed creations on the holonet. Just like me, folks can’t seem to resist the gentle aroma of the steamed bantha milk waftin’ up from that warm mug. This new holiday variation keeps the familiar bantha blue but swaps out the tea for chocolate, addin’ a richness that feels perfect for the season. I’ve got a feelin’ I’ll be pourin’ my fair share of these over the midwinter months.
This book looks set to another sure-fire hit. The dishes look delicious. And I can think of no better way to celebrate Life Day than with a delicious mug of Mudhorn Eggnog. And if the Armorer were here she’d be saying…This Is The Way…to enjoy Life Day!
