"My savory mushbloom pie also makes a great Life Day meal for those species who tend to be a bit more herbivorous than your average Wookiee."
―Strono Tuggs, The Life Day Cookbook[1]

Mushbloom pie was a savory pie created by the Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs, who used the fungus known as the mushbloom from the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk. After the chef published his first cookbook[1] in 34 ABY,[2] he included a recipe for mushbloom pie in his holiday cookbook, The Life Day Cookbook, where he mentioned that species that were not as carnivorous as the Wookiees could enjoy the pie as a tasty meal on the holiday of Life Day.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Mushbloom pie was introduced in the 2021 recipe book Star Wars: The Life Day Cookbook, authored by Marc Sumerak and Jenn Fujikawa. The out-of-universe recipe for the mashed-potato topping includes russet potatoes, whole milk, butter, salt, and white pepper. The filling calls for olive oil, butter, carrots, celery stalks, an onion, white mushrooms, cremini mushrooms, garlic cloves, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, oregano, paprika, salt, black pepper, and Parmesan cheese.[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.
