The review of this book is enough to make a stomach growl louder than a hungry wookie on Endor. Starting with appetizers and snacks, we take a look at Shi-Shok Fruit Bowls, a delicious fruit concoction that takes 15 minutes to prepare, through to Pickled Mynock, a shrimp-based dish that only takes 5 minutes to prepare. and 5 minutes to cook. Easy, tasty and as described by legendary galactic Maz chef Kanata Strono Tuggs, all with a story as we move on to side dishes where Spine Tree Spears (cauliflower florets and taking 10 minutes to prepare) and Cirilian Noodle Salad (just as tasty as it sounds with noodles, salad, dressing and just 20 minutes of prep and 5 minutes of cooking time) wait to bounce on your taste buds.
We then move on to the main courses, where aspiring cooks can really stretch their talents and cook partners bask in the simmering glow of a well-cooked meal. Crait’s crusted cod not only looks appetizing, but consists of cod, lemons, eggs, black pepper, and, as Strono told, a baked dish reminiscent of Crait’s surface. herself. Kublag Curry takes 10 minutes to prepare and 35 to cook and consists of chicken, carrots, potatoes and hail from the Endor Sanctuary Moon. The stories of collecting ingredients by Strno are extremely enjoyable, and future chefs should definitely take the time to read these stories where he sometimes suggests pairing the dish with other recipes throughout the book.
Desserts are always a welcome arrival at any table and the dishes presented here are no exception. Who doesn’t want Wookiee-Ookiees, Cinnamon Nutmeg Chewie-shaped cookies, or Kashyyyk Cake, a marscarpona-based delight that, including prep and baking, only takes an hour but looks good enough to melt in your mouth. Complimenting all meals are the drinks, with another recipe made from Kashyyyk Wroshyr Sap Cider (apple cider, cinnamon sticks) and Scarif Slush resembling a drink that any Citadel Tower visitor would want to sip in the tropical sunshine. by Scarif.
We end the book with lyrics by Joh Blastoh, a traditional Huttan song performed by bands across the galaxy, and the best ways to celebrate the Day of Life wherever you are in the area of the cosmos. This includes the Day of Life Orbs, the Tree of Life, Life Day Robes (though you’ll never look as good-looking as Chewie in her Red Holiday Special Robes) and beyond even dietary considerations and a measurement conversion table. It really is a well thought out book, right down to the color of the pages that give off a warm and soothing glow that makes flipping through the pages a pleasure. Great work across the board, and definitely one to buy for your foodie friends.
