Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"Consider, young Jedi: Why bake a plain old cookie when you can bake a super-Chewie Wookiee Cookie?" So begins the delightful Star Wars Cookbook. Aimed at young cooks, but fun for all ages, the cookbook provides recipes for treats such as Princess Leia Danish Dos, Twin Sun Toast, Tusken Raider Taters, Sandtrooper Sandies, and the Amazon.com house favorite, Boba Fett-uccine. (What better way to get young Jedi knights to eat their broccoli?) Author Robin Davis's directions are extremely thorough and safety oriented (as she notes, "the calm and perceptive mind of a Jedi warrior will enable you to prevent most mishaps in the kitchen"), and perfect for kids who are new to cooking. The spiral-bound pages are lightly plasticoated, so if you spill some milk while concocting C-3PO Pancakes, it's easily wiped off. The highlights of the book are Frankie Frankeny's terrific photographs of Star Wars action figures posing with the food--R2-D2 encounters giant frozen R2-D2 Treats that look remarkably similar to him, while Darth Vader raises his fist at Bossk the bounty hunter atop a wall of Bossk Brownies as Darth's henchmen look on. And who could resist a shot of Jabba Jiggle? There's Jabba the Hutt positioned on a pile of oozing lime Jell-O®. Whether you're a Star Wars fan or just looking for a way to get the kids to feel the Force in the kitchen, The Star Wars Cookbook is great fun, and tasty, too! --Rebecca A. Staffel --This text refers to the Spiral-bound edition.

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5-Twenty-nine recipes, divided by subject, include "Tusken Raider Taters," "Yoda Soda," "C-3PO Pancakes," and so on. Really, they are ordinary, basic recipes, clearly written, and easy to make. Much prepared food is called for, from refrigerator pizza dough to Kit Kat candy bars. The illustrations are a surrealistic combination of food and Star Wars figures that are the same size as or smaller than the featured dish. The spiral binding enables the book to lay flat, the pages are plastic coated, and there are stickers in the back. Some adults may be annoyed by the coyly clever tone, but most kids will like it because it's Star Wars.

I received this cookbook as a gift from a friend because I am both a huge Star Wars fan and I am also a chef. She thought that this would be a perfect gift for me and she was right. The recipies in this book are simple and easy to understand. Perfect for getting the younglings involved and teaching them the basics of cooking. Also there are great photos of each item with Star Wars action figures incorperated into each photo. There are numerous recipies that will satisfy any Star Wars fan both young and old. This cookbook is a must have for any Star Wars fan but it is especially a great tool in teaching the kids how to help out in the kitchen while having fun in the process.

This beautifully illustrated, spiral-bound, hardcover book is a must buy for any serious Star Wars fan who wants to add a touch of The Force to his or her life with the delicious recipes featured in it.
The book is divided into five sections for easy reference: Breakfasts, Beverages, Snacks and Sides, Main Courses and Desserts. Each Star Wars themed recipe is fully and clearly explained (ingredient measurements and preparation instructions) for easy understanding. The book also comes with a few foil stickers for storage and gift labeling and an introduction that contains practical advise on cooking safety and a guide of the cooking tools you'll need. As an added bonus, the pages of the book are laminated for easy, stain-free cleaning.
You will love all the recipes, and will probably recreate, the wonderfully photographed serving suggestions given in the book like the Han-Burgers, Crazy Cantina Chili and the Jabba Jiggle, which are decorated with the action figures of known characters of the original Star Wars movie trilogy. Other recipes' presentations feature enjoyable visual puns like the TIE Fighter Ties, the Twin Sun Toast and the R2-D2 Treats. Some are even very basic, but really tasty, recipes that have been given clever Star Wars-sounding names like Oola-la French Toast, Hoth Chocolate, Yoda Soda and Boba Fett-uccine.
Buy this book, and share the joy of cooking and your love of everything Star Wars with kids and adults, family and friends. And May The Force Be With You.
I would also recommend buying the Star Wars Cookbook II and The Star Wars Party Book along with this one as they all make a complete, excellent and fun idea source book for everyday cooking and Star Wars themed parties.

This is a great book!! When I got it, my mom was sick, but we made her Wookie Cookies and she felt better almost immediately!! (Maybe she just thought we were doing something special and felt gratitude). I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to make some quick snacks or a full course meal. I really like this book.

I have tried a few of the reciepies in this book and the results have been mostly delicious. although the "wookie cookies" are slightly hairy -at first- with a delightful flavor over all, and a rich after taste. Have plenty of milk handy to wash them down.

Some of the ingredients are difficult to find, but if you use the force and find a smuggler with a fast ship you should be able to procure the ingredients you are looking for.

Also in the book are the tuantaun wan tons. I encourage you to try these. they are amazing if you can get past the smell. I made some for my girlfriend/sister and she loved them!

It is worth noting that when I tried the Yoda yogurt it seemed stale, but that may have been my fault so don't let it stop you.

This book is great and a must have for any kitchen. It is roughly the size of a small thermal exhaust port and fits neatly in both a kitchen cupboard or a bookshelf. You can't go wrong (unless you give in to your anger)

Eat or do not eat, but you must buy.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this cookbook for my husband because he loves Star Wars. It was the pictures that made me want to buy this book. Each entree has a fun name like: Twin Sun Toast, Hoth Chocolate, Skywalker Smoothies, or Mos Eisley Morsels. And each page has a fun picture of the entree with Star Wars figurines.

Our cookbook goes along fine until page 38, then it jumps to page 47 until it reaches page 52, then we get pages 45 & 46, then 39-44, then 53-60.

Other than that confusion (which might not be in all the copies, who knows) I thought this was a really great item. My son LOVES it and could care less that the pages are out of order.

If you feel like doing the jabba jiggle, or having some ca-razy cantina chili then this book is for you. I bought this book for a friend who loved star wars & was into amateur cooking. But when I got the book I knew I needed one for myself! For you may be able to resist the dark side... but you sure can't resist any of the dark side salsa. Explore the recipes of this delighful book which includes Yoda soda, bossk brownies, jabba jello, boba fett-ucine, & lots more.

My kids are huge Star Wars fans & they love to cook. This was perfect for them!! The instructions are easy to follow & many of the recipes can be made by them alone (with me close by, of course.) By doing it on their own & with Star Wars as the theme, they tried things they wouldn't have before & they loved it!! There has only been one thing they haven't liked (Mos Eisley Morsels--they were very dry), but the Bossk Brownies, Wookie Cookies & Greedo Burrito were the best to them. It was definately worth the money!!! We have only had it a few weeks & we've tried most of it & keep going back!! Can't say enough good about it!!
