Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is already open at Disneyland Resort and set to open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios within Walt Disney World Resort on August 29th, 2019. This new land is extremely immersive, allowing guests to experience the Star Wars universe unlike ever before. The land is set in the planet of Batuu in a place called the Black Spire Outpost, which is a remote trading port where smugglers, traders, adventurers and more venture to. The land is also home to many locals who have their own cooking traditions and foods that have been passed down through the generations. Soon, guests will be able to bring home a variety of new recipes and ways of cooking with the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge cookbook.
This new cookbook will provide guests a way to create some of the amazing treats and meals that they might experience while in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, along with other recipes. All of the food is inspired by the stories and cuisine in the land. The book is written from the perspective of Strono “Cookie” Tuggs, former head chef at Maz Kanata’s castle on Takodana.
Per Disney Parks Blog, “After his time on Takodana, Tuggs went on to operate a food freighter (known as “Tugg’s Grib” – a ‘traveling diner for diners traveling’) serving countless planets from across the galaxy. He now boasts an encyclopedic knowledge of the galaxy’s culinary delights born of decades of travel, research, and a love of the holovids of the legendary chef Gormaanda. In the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Cookbook, Tuggs’ first cookbook, Star Wars fans will find a wealth of delicious intergalactic recipes designed for home cooks of all skill levels. It will be published by Insight Editions and is coauthored by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel (an author of several bestselling medieval fantasy-themed cookbooks) and the award-nominated writer and editor Marc Sumerak, who’s work includes Hidden Universe Travel Guides: The Complete Marvel Cosmos and Guardians of the Galaxy: Creating Marvel’s Spacefaring Super Heroes.”
The new cookbook will be available for purchase in November of 2019. We will share more information as we have it!
