Thug Kitchen
Thug Kitchen started their wildly popular web site to inspire people to eat some Goddamn vegetables and adopt a healthier lifestyle. Beloved by Gwyneth Paltrow ("This might be my favorite thing ever") and named Saveur's Best New Food blog of 2013—with half a million Facebook fans and counting—Thug Kitchen wants to show everyone how to take charge of their plates and cook up some real f*cking food.

Yeah, plenty of blogs and cookbooks preach about how to eat more kale, why ginger fights inflammation, and how to cook with microgreens and nettles. But they are dull or pretentious as hell—and most people can't afford the hype.

Thug Kitchen lives in the real world. In their first cookbook, they're throwing down more than 100 recipes for their best-loved meals, snacks, and sides for beginning cooks to home chefs. (Roasted Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos? Pumpkin Chili? Grilled Peach Salsa? Believe that sh*t.) Plus they're going to arm you with all the info and techniques you need to shop on a budget and go and kick a bunch of ass on your own.

This book is an invitation to everyone who wants to do better to elevate their kitchen game. No more ketchup and pizza counting as vegetables. No more drive-thru lines. No more avoiding the produce corner of the supermarket. Sh*t is about to get real.

    This is hilarious!! Caution: You have to be ok with foul language (if you are offended -- do NOT pick it up. I have never seen bad language before in a cookbook and it cracked me up (yes, that is the gimmick I guess)! The book contains all whole foods, plant based recipes. I tried a fe...

    Best cookbook that I own. Every recipe I've tried is really quick to make and super scrumptious delicious and it is all healthy food. The language is terrible and I love it. Maybe it reminds me of growing up in the San Fernando Valley. This is the first cookbook that inspired me to eat...

    Four stars because I can't in good conscience give 5 stars to a book with so many f-bombs dropping right and left. That being said, I actually love this cookbook! For 2 reasons: 1) It's got some great vegan recipes, and 2) It's hilarious. I read it start to finish, including captions, ...

    When I first saw this book I had heard nothing about it, I came to it completely unaware. I saw it in my local library and just glanced at the cover, title, and subtitle. My impression from just that was that maybe it was a L.A.-style street food book and it did not come across as a bo...

    Funny at first - although all that cursing every two words felt so unnatural and forced I just started skipping all of those sh*** and f***k they kept tossing around - but ultimately pretty generic. There are some really nice and delicious-looking reciped that I would like to try my ha...
