- "Shank of mousta, Chef. Sautéed and cooked rare, with a side of charred fruit."
- ―Relva Jace presents a dish containing mousta meat during the cooking competition
Mousta were a type of creature from which a shank cut of meat could be obtained for use in cooking. The human chef Relva Jace prepared a sautéed shank of mousta cooked rare with a side of charred fruit as his entry into the first round of a cooking competition meant to determine the next sous-chef at the castle of the pirate Maz Kanata on the planet Takodana. The castle's head chef Strono Tuggs, who had asked the contestants to prepare a breakfast platter, found the meat satisfyingly pungent but along with his fellow judges J'Nell and Carly agreed the dish was uninspired and lacked salt, resulting in Jace leaving the competition.
Behind the scenesEdit
Mousta first appeared as a meat in the short story "A Recipe for Death", which was written by Landry Q. Walker and released on April 5, 2016 as part of the Tales from a Galaxy Far, Far Away: Aliens: Volume I anthology book.
