This cookbook was recommended by my friend Alicia. I am definitely not a vegetarian, but the recipes in Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook: Eat Like You Give a F*ck are just that and they are fabulous! I found that the basic recipes were excellent without meat, but the addition of a bit of meat or substituting a good meat-based broth, where you can, would enhance them to satisfy any carnivore. The truth of it is that this #1 New York Times Bestseller is all about cooking “real” food.
Yes, there are loads of swear words. Really, they are just a gimmick to sell the book. If you can get past that then you will love what Thug Kitchen is doing with their cooking. Chef Jaime Oliver put it well when he said, “As hilariously foul-mouthed as these motherf#ckers are, I really like their passion for eating the right food …”
Thug Kitchen has divided “The Official Cookbook” into six sections covering all from Breakfast to Desserts and everything in-between! My favorite section were the Mini-Meals especially the Vietnamese Rice Noodle Salad. There are a few special sections worth reading even if you never make any of the recipes, (I am sure that wont happen.) Their kitchen basics cover the tools they use and pantry staples they consider a must in any good kitchen.
I really, really liked the two recurring short features included throughout the book. I actually flipped through the whole thing just to read them! Of course I got distracted along the way with all the wonderful pictures, illustrations and, yes, the recipes.
Cooking tips and bits of knowledge about specialty items are covered in “Dropping Knowledge”. I learned a few new things.
“Basic Shit” provides great ideas and instructions on how to make “basic” stuff that you then can build on or use in your recipes.
I had a fun-tastic time reading through Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook: Eat Like You Give a F*ck and trying some of the recipes. I know you will too. You can find the book through my links. Get yours today and have a sh%t-load of fun!
