The Star Wars Cook Book: Wookiee Cookies and Other Galactic Recipes Hardcover-spiral – September 1, 1998

"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
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.

Just be forewarned, the ideas are cute but be sure you test the recipes before making these for a dinner party or game night.
geared toward an adult. It is for kids. Just want to make that clear. The forward for the book contains warnings
like "Be careful around a hot stove" and so on. The recipes are super basic and a kid would love it as a first cookbook,
but as a 'novelty cookbook' for a star wars fan/cook's kitchen, it won't do much good. Had to send it back Cute design, good for kids.
For a children's cookbook, it is very nice and I love it. Lots of basic recipes to help a young chef learn some staples. Cute presentation and it's awesome that the book lays flat!
If you are buying this for a grown-up who can cook more than Kraft Mac and Cheese, you are buying a prop for a Starwars fan.
