"Naturally, folks who were off-planet when Alderaan was blown up find themselves pretty desperate for some culinary comfort whenever midwinter rolls 'round. Hopefully, these mouthwaterin' Kebroot Parcels manage to capture the flavor of Winter's Heart for anyone who still remembers it."
―Strono Tuggs, The Life Day Cookbook[1]

Kebroot Parcels were a type of food made using kebroot, a type of tuber that was served as part of the feasts held during the Winter's Heart festival on the planet Alderaan prior to the world's destruction[1] in 0 BBY.[2] At some point after publishing his first cookbook[1] in 34 ABY,[3] the Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs included a recipe for Kebroot Parcels in his second cookbook, The Life Day Cookbook. Tuggs described the parcels as mouthwatering and hoped that the dish captured some of the flavor of Winter's Heart for any who had survived the destruction of Alderaan and still celebrated the festival or sought culinary comfort around that time of year.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Kebroot Parcels were 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 filling uses sweet potatoes, dried corn husks, black beans, sweet corn, chopped roasted green chilis, chili powder, ground cumin, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. The recipe for the masa consists of masa harina, salt, baking powder, vegetable broth, and extra virgin olive oil.[1]

  3. 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.
