Have you cooked from “The Star Wars Cookbook: Wookiee Cookies and other Galactic Recipes”? Or have you cooked from “The Star Wars Cookbook II: Darth Malt and more Galactic Recipes”? These books have several fantastic recipes that are Star Wars related with creative names.
Darth Maul Dip, or
Pit Droid Pizza
These books are full of fun that will entertain the children or the child within. These first two cookbooks were made to be durable with kids in mind. They have hard covers that are very heavy duty and can handle kids playing with them. The pages are easy to clean when things get messy. The spiral binding keeps the bind from creasing and cracking.
However, the New Star Wars Cookbook Deluxe Set with Cookie Cutters: Wookiee Pies, Clone Scones, and Other Galactic Goodies! is lacking in quality. The bind is cheap (see images below). To see a full page you will have to crease the bind that will form cracks as time goes on. The covers are paperback, which means the durability has decreased substantially. Also of the 30 recipes, 15 (that’s half) are from the previous volumes. With this book being more expensive than the other two, I think more time and quality could have been issued.
While the cookie cutters are cute and the new recipes look yummy, I feel the 22-25 dollar price range is too much. This book screams lazy because of these 3 complications:
-it contains 15 recipes from the original cookbook,
-the binding is cheap and not the spiral binding that are exhibited in the other two cookbooks,
-and the cover is paperback and not a hard cover.
Perhaps the next cookbook will show greater care.
