A galactic culinary face-off

Posted on

Featuring such artery-clogging dishes as Han-Burgers and Vulcan Mocha Ice Cream, the recipes from the new Star Wars and Star Trek cookbooks aren’t in the live-long-and-prosper category. Besides the caloric merits, here’s how to tell the space-grub guides apart.

TASTIEST RECIPE
—Crazy Cantina Chili
—Sisko’s Shrimp Creole with Mandalay Sauce

NOT FIT FOR A DROID
