"So, I tried to capture the notes of the jogan in a whole new way, layerin' it with sweet creams and jellies in this cool and refreshin' parfait. Just like the holidays, this one reminds you of all the things you love while givin' you an entirely fresh perspective on what's possible."
―Strono Tuggs, The Life Day Cookbook[1]

Jogan Fruit Parfait was a type of purple-and-white parfait dessert made using layers of jogan fruit, sweet creams, and jellies. It was created by the Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs for his second cookbook, The Life Day Cookbook, which he released at some point after publishing his first cookbook[1] in 34 ABY.[2]

Tuggs created the dish because he wanted to represent the extremely popular jogan fruitcake in the book but did not want to suggest serving such a regularly eaten dish in a festive menu. Instead, he tried to capture the same notes in something new and fresh. He described the dish as cool and refreshing and claimed that it would remind those who ate it of all the things they loved while also giving them a fresh perspective, just like the holidays themselves.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Jogan Fruit Parfait 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 for the gelatin uses unflavored gelatin, water, full-fat coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk, and ube extract. The recipe for the parfait uses ube ice cream, whipped cream, and sweetened coconut flakes.[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.
