"There are lots of worlds where eopie is considered a delicacy. Personally, I never quite understood the appeal of gnawin' on tough meat from such an ill-tempered, flatulent creature. But a visit to Bakkar over at Ronto Roasters in Black Sire Outpost changed my tune."
―Strono Tuggs, The Life Day Cookbook[1]

Eopie Roast was a dish created by the human chef Bakkar, proprietor of Ronto Roasters. It consisted of the seasoned roast rump of an eopie. After Bakkar allowed him to sample some Eopie Roast, the Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs traded one of his best vibroknives to Bakkar in exchange for the recipe. Tuggs then published the recipe in his second cookbook, The Life Day Cookbook.

Description[]

"[Bakkar] lemme sample a slice of roasted eopie rump so tender that it practically melted in my big ol' mouth. The way his special seasonin' blend permeated the meat was pure magic."
―Strono Tuggs, The Life Day Cookbook[1]

Eopie Roast was a dish consisting of the rump of an eopie flavored with a special seasoning and roasted in an oven. It was edible to Artiodacs and humans and was served as a main course. The Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs described the dish as so tender that it melted in his mouth and called the way that the seasoning permeated the meat magical.[1]

History[]

"Bakkar ain't usually one to share his trade secrets, though, even with an ol' friend like me. Had to trade one of my best vibroknives to get the recipe from him, but I still think I came out on top in that deal."
―Strono Tuggs, The Life Day Cookbook[1]

Eopie Roast was a creation of Bakkar.

Eopie Roast was created, along with the special seasoning used in the dish, by the human chef Bakkar, proprietor of Ronto Roasters in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. At one point, he gave a slice of roasted eopie rump to the Strono Tuggs as a sample while Tuggs was dining at Ronto Roasters. The Artiodac, who had always been dubious of eating tough eopie meat due to the ill-tempered and flatulent nature of the creature, was so impressed by the tenderness and flavor of the sample that he asked Bakkar for the recipe. Although Bakkar was usually unwilling to part with his trade secrets, Tuggs convinced his fellow chef to share by trading him one of his best vibroknives in exchange for it.[1]

Believing that he had gotten the better end of the deal, Tuggs then included the recipe in the main courses section of his second cookbook, The Life Day Cookbook, which he released at some point after his first cookbook was published[1] in 34 ABY.[2] He suggested that readers could not go wrong with Eopie Roast at any special event, including the Life Day festival.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Eopie Roast was created as a recipe for the 2021 Star Wars: The Life Day Cookbook, a recipe book written by Jenn Fujikawa and Marc Sumerak. The out-of-universe recipe uses garlic cloves, packed light brown sugar, paprika, salt, black pepper, pork loin, and fresh rosemary.[1]

  2. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook establishes that the in-universe book was published at the same time as when the First Order was searching for the Resistance base on Batuu. As that search occurs in Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire, which is set in 34 ABY according to the reasoning here, the cookbook must have been published in 34 ABY.
