"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.

were going to Science Fiction Bookshop in Sweden, I was anxiously awaiting to get this. I have the Cookbook 2 too, but this is better!
The recipes are nothing but fancy. There is Dark Side Salsa, a nacho sauce for tortilla chips, Jabba Jiggle named treaty thing with Jello and fruit. Only Tusken Raider Taters are odd: I dont understand that recipe. BUT THE BEST IS WOOKIEE COOKIEES! I LOVE THEM! That recipe is so nice, like Han-Burgers. My cousin could like Obi Wan Kebabs and Death Star Popcorn Balls. And my favourite drink is Jawa Jive Milkshakes!
I like this
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, share the joy of cooking and your love of everything Star Wars with family (kids and adults) 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.
--Reviewed by M. E. Volmar
There are delicacies aplenty for all of the special occasions and pertaining to all of the original trilogy films. Need a good boost for breakfast? Nothing like a Mos Eisley Morsel, Twin Sunset Toast, or C-3PO Pancakes to start your day. Hungry for a lunch? Dark Side Salsa, Tusken Raider Taters, or Ewok Eats are sure to fire up your taste buds. Need a hearty supper? Greedo's Burritos, Ohi-Wan Kebabs, or TIE-Fighter Ties are yummies to name a few.
Great book! So long as you're looking into purchasing it, goes great with STAR WARS: EPISODE 2 COOKBOOK and STAR WARS PARTY BOOK! MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!
The book has a deceptive flat spine on the outside, but the inside is spiral bound so the book can lay flat on your counter - a must in any cookbook.
The book only has 29 recipes, but it is presented well. It has lots of full color photos revealing the final product - what your food should look like when you're done, and peppered in with various Star Wars action figures.
Despite its title, this is not a cookbook for just desserts - there are only 7 dessert recipes in the book. Some recipies are basic, where only the names are clever... such as "Hoth Chocolate" (which is just hot chocolate) and "Han Burgers" (which are juts plain ol' hamburgers) with a few visual puns such as the "Twin Sun Toast" and the "R2-D2 Treats."
For finicky kids who like Star Wars but typically just poke at their food, having an official Star Wars recipe may be just the thing to convince them to eat. The clever names will make you sound like a genius when you whip up some snacks to bring to work or have a party for other Star Wars fans.
The last page has some foil stickers for you to put on packages you may prepare for family or friends with such clever lines as "Use the Fork, Luke" and "Give in to your dark cravings," these are a cute addition.
It would have been nice for the author to have included either physical or web addresses for places to get Star Wars themed party supplies. Everything to R2-D2 cookie-cutters to paper table cloths, etc. I have seen these items and know they exist.Read more ›

Pro: The pics are great, it's fun to look at.
Con: Not a great cookbook
Simply, there are better star wars inspired recipes online.
Fun gift for the Star Wars fan! I didn't buy the book for the recipes themselves, but more for the novelty for the kiddie (or adult) star wars fan to have on their shelf! Read morePublished 3 months ago by Erls
