Not just being a Star Wars fans of a full effort, it’s also a hungry business, so the arrival of Star Wars: Galactic Baking: The Official Cookbook of Sweet and Savory Treats From Tatooine, Hoth, and Beyond from Insight Editions isn’t much better to time. As we await all the treatments to come from Lucasfilm and countdown the days to next year’s Anaheim Festival, what better way than to cook up a storm and be creative with recipients who literally cover the galaxy.
Like most cookbooks, recipients are divided into logical parts. There are Dessert Worlds, Frozen Worlds, Green Worlds, Cities and Space Stations and Swamp, Volcano and Mineral Worlds, separated into three different dish types; Lightpeed recipients that last anywhere from 30 minutes, the rich and laid back receive the Dark Side and low calorie, healthier Light Side recipients. It even gives you a list of the best bakery tools to use (sadly no hydrospanners are required). Get all of that and an empty kitchen and you’re away.
There is actually a Kanata kitchen that has delicious food here. Jakku Junkyard Treats covers broken cereals and snack chips with pumpkin seasoning for a very simple snack look, while Chance Cube Cakes rolls into town with enough flavor to make Watto smile. The Sith Cookies look like they were picked and delivered hot from the lava shores of Mustafar while the TIE Fighter Ice Cream Sandwich was ready to launch into maws across the galaxy.
Put it this way, if someone doesn’t bake a Life Day Cake and share it on a social at the next Festival, I will be very disappointed. It’s a very enjoyable, beautifully photographed and designed book that will sit proudly next to another Star Wars exiting the kitchen and the team behind it must be very proud …. with a minor quibble though; it won’t help the collective post-Corona diet plans one bit.
