This article was updated on September 10th, 2019.

Hi everyone!

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland and Walt Disney World inspired a new cookbook that will be released on November 5th, 2019 called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook. Today a cover was released for this title, which has been available for pre-order in the past few months. Insight Editions sent us the cover photo, press release and a couple of recipe pages from the 75 total recipes to share. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook is co-written in by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel, who has written a variety of very well reviewed cookbooks that “transform imaginary foods into reality”. Read more about the book below! (Insight Editions sent us more recipes on September 10th).

Inspired by the cuisine from the exciting new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge themed lands at Disneyland, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook (Insight Editions; November 5, 2019) is the ultimate source for creating out- of-this-world meals and treats from Black Spire Outpost and beyond.

This amazing new cookbook is inspired by the stories and cuisine from Disney’s biggest single- themed land, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Written from the unique culinary perspective of Strono “Cookie” Tuggs, the head chef at Maz Kanata’s castle on Takodana, this cookbook provides Star Wars fans with a wealth of delicious galactic recipes for home cooks of all skill levels.

The opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is far from the only Star Wars event this year. In fact, 2019 will be one of the most momentous in the history of the Star Wars saga. Upcoming events include the highly anticipated release of Star Wars – The Rise of Skywalker (marking the culmination of the forty-plus-year Skywalker saga), the first live-action Star Wars television series, The Mandalorian, and more.

There is a Ronto Wrap inspired recipe – a different take then what you’ll find on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

But the next two recipes we were told are “straight out of the park”. The first is the Yobshrimp Noodle Salad.

And the second is the Fried Endorian Tip-Yip.

Engaging, fun, and informative, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Cookbook is the definitive guide to the delectable cuisines of a galaxy far, far away.


Strono “Cookie” Tuggs is a galaxy-renowned chef, best known for being head cook at Maz Kanata’s castle on Takodana (before it was destroyed). He now owns and operates a food freighter serving countless planets across the galaxy. Tuggs boasts near-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. This is his first cookbook.

Chelsea Monroe-Cassel is the coauthor of the bestseller A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Game of Thrones Companion Cookbook, The Elder Scrolls: The Official Cookbook and the author of World of Warcraft: The Official Cookbook. Her work is a synthesis of imagination and historical research. This passion has led her to a career of transforming imaginary foods into reality. She greatly enjoys foreign languages, treasure hunting, history, and all things related to honey.
