Jedi Chef or Pizza Hutt is an 8-page comic featured in Star Wars Tales 7, written by Randy Stradley and art by Francisco Ruiz Velasco.

Plot summaryEdit

Jedi Council members Micah Giiett and Plo Koon embark on a mission to planet Ord Mantell, to rescue famous chef Slabba Drewl from Corpo the Hutt. Apparently Drewl was enslaved to Corpo after losing a bet with the Hutt.

Corpo's priorities in life were gambling and food, and his prize possession was a MREM-02 , called Moreemohtwo. Giett bets Corpo that he can prepare a meal better than one made by Moreemohtwo. Corpo accepts the wager—if Giett wins, Drewl is freed. If Moreemohtwo wins, then Giett would also become enslaved to the Hutt.

Giett secretly instructs Plo Koon to "sabotage" the meal prepared by the droid. The "cook-off" begins, with a host announcing the theme ingredient: Denusian squirmers. Giett is bitten on the nose by a squirmer, and he uses his lightsaber to power-chop and flash cook the theme ingredient. Meanwhile, Plo Koon sneakily replaces Moreemohtwo's seebo sauce with droid oil, and slips gundark droppings, Rakririan Burnout Sauce and Bothan foot powder into Moreemohtwo's pot.

At the end of the cook-off, Moreemohtwo presents 5 dishes of delicious looking food, while Giett presents his two messy bowls of squirmer stew. After Corpo tastes Moreemohtwo's sabotaged meal, Corpo immediately releases Drewl from custody. Corpo then beats on Moreemohtwo for losing the bet, causing the latter to eventually fall onto the Hutt, causing an Ewok to shout "Hutt Pizza!"

Behind the scenesEdit

Wookieepedia has 9 images related to Jedi Chef.

The story is clearly based on the Japanese television program Iron Chef. The name "Moreemohtwo" is derived from Iron Chef Japanese Masaharu Morimoto. The alternate title for the story is a direct reference to the American Pizza chain Pizza Hut.

It should be noted that Micah Giiett's surname is spelled incorrectly, both as Giiet and Giett.

Slabba Drewl is obviously a misspelled version of slobber and drool.

The underwear that the Ewok is wearing on its head on the final panel had the word "Han's" written on it.
