- "Five-blossom-bread, my specialty."
- ―Padmé Amidala, to Anakin Skywalker
Five-blossom bread was a kind of bread from the Mid Rim planet Naboo that could be consumed by humans and Artiodacs. During her childhood, Senator Padmé Amidala used to make the bread, and felt it a speciality of hers. During the Clone Wars, the senator was given some of this bread by a Naboo ambassador. She saved it for a special occasion and offered it when her husband Anakin Skywalker visited her in her apartment. Saché, one of Amidala's handmaidens, considered five-blossom bread to be one of her favorites.
At some point after the Battle of Takodana in 34 ABY the chef Strono Tuggs included a recipe for five-blossom bread in his cookbook, The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook, and began serving it in his restaurant, Tuggs' Grub while it was on the Outer Rim planet Batuu.
