I told you I’d be back with another cookbook overreview. This time I am calling for Star Wars fans to get ready for an intergalactic experience while baking out of this brand new cookbook!
Insight Edition’s Cookbooks
Not too long ago, I reviewed one of Insight Editions pre-released Cooking with Deadpool cookbook. I even included a cooking demo straight from my very own kitchen at home. What better way to enjoy the cookbook than to share my experience with all of you at home!
You can read my review and watch me cooking in my kitchen HERE.
Once again I’m very excited that our friends at Insight Editions have gifted me with an advanced copy of their newest cookbook featuring Star Wars.
Star Wars: Galactic Baking: The Official Cookbook of Sweet and Savory Treats from Tatooine, Hoth, and Beyond is perfect as it surrounds itself with baking treats!
This is perfect timing for celebrating May the 4th!
Star Wars: Galactic Baking: The Official Cookbook of Sweet and Savory Treats from Tatooine, Hoth, and Beyond
Get ready to tour the galaxy with this baking cookbook inspired by the snowdrifts of Hoth, the wastelands of Tatooine, and beyond.
Star Wars: Galactic Baking is the most delicious way to experience the planets, flora, and fauna of the Star Wars galaxy. Whether you’re throwing a watch party or hosting members of the Galactic Senate, this cookbook is a must-have for fans of all ages.
Featuring over thirty mouthwatering recipes, Star Wars: Galactic Baking features recipes such as Mustafarian Molten Lava Cakes, Cloud City Marshmallows, Life Day Cake, Loth-Cat Kibble, Keshian Spice Bread, Dagobah Bog Pie, and more.
This great cookbook is perfect for all baking skillsets—from Padawans to Jedi Masters in the kitchen—and the recipes are based on elements from the entire Star Wars timeline, from the Skywalker Saga and beyond!
Initial Thoughts Before Heading To the Kitchen
I have to admit that when I received the cookbook my youngest daughter and I were quite giddy and so excited to open it and go through the recipes.
Initially, the front cover screams out Star Wars and baking as Tie Fighter Ice Cream Sandwiches gracefully adorn the front cover! How can you not resist?
How about these Sith cookies! Look at the black and red color of the cookies!
The size of the cookbook is a great size in my opinion as it is not too small and not too big and bulky.
It is perfect enough to fit on your shelf with cookbooks or even to display in your kitchen.
The cookbook begins with an Introduction of a few things that one should know before embarking on the culinary baking adventures.
I really like how some of the the recipes incorporate one of three different symbols as seen in the picture above.
The following page in the cookbook is dedicated to the assortment of Baking Tools that one should prepare to have when baking the different baked goods in the cookbook.
The book is packed with stunning food photography that’s sure to inspire your inner chef. This cookbook will transport you to planets such as Kashyyyk, Jakku, Endor, Bespin, Coruscant, and everywhere in between.
The cookbook is divided into five different sections: Dessert Worlds, Frozen Worlds, Green Worlds, Cities & Space Stations and lastly, Swamp, Volcano & Mineral Worlds.
Thankfully, as you have noted throughout this article, we have been provided with several of the recipes from the cookbook!
This way you are able to put your culinary skills to the test as you anticipate the arrival of your cookbook.
What To Bake?
Unfortunately, for this cookbook I will not be able to do a recording of me putting a recipe to the test in my kitchen.
However, that will not stop us from baking a recipe with my kids today as it is May the 4th! I had my youngest daughter pick out the recipe that she would like me to bake.
We will be making “Festival of the Ancestors Cookies” as featured in the picture below.
The description for the recipe is as follows:
The jewel-tone centers of these buttery cookies-made with crushed and melted hard candies-celebrate the color, clothing and kites of the Aki-Aki and their Festival of the Ancestors in the desert of Pasaana. Though this celebration only occurs once every 42 years, these colorful cookies can be enjoyed at anytime!
Sounds yummy and colorful, doesn’t it? I look forward to getting into the kitchen with my kids and making them to celebrate the day!
