Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook: Eat Like You Give a F*ck Reviews
It's another entry-level, "clean" vegan cookbook - this one tries to distinguish itself by inserting profanity in just about every sentence as "humor" or being "hip." Some of the recipes look interesting but most of them are very basic - pancakes, sandwiches, banana cream pie. Plenty of vegan cookbooks for beginners out there -- find one that speaks to you. This one doesn't offer much for me - though I do give them credit for a few interesting recipes such as a smoked almond-chickpea sandwich.
Sophomoric at best, racist at worst.
Also, adding swear words doesn't make you clever, nor adding cutesy names like "nooch" for nutritional yeast.
I read a lot of vegetarian/vegan cookbooks and this was sort of a yawn, if you could get past the ridiculous self-promotional language.
If you were actually trying to cook something out of this cookbook, it would be a waste. They spend so much time being "funny" in their descriptions they often left out steps. I had to laugh reading some recipes thinking ...more
So I don't normally review cookbooks on Goodreads (maybe I should?) but I love, love, love this recipe book. This book is a Tex-Mex comfort food cookbook for vegetarians and vegans. It would be super easy to add meat to a lot of these recipes, but you don't have to, the food really fills you up and make great leftovers. Once I had a steady repertoire of faithful recipes, I started experimenting and finding more and more recipes that I liked.
The swearing is a little too edgy at times but the reci ...more
I did not realize this was only a vegan cookbook but wow, all the recipes sound tasty. Gonna make the chickpea dumplings and chickpea and broccoli burritos this week. The recipes don't seem complicated and the authors drop helpful hints all throughout. very entertaining cookbook.
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 hands on soon, but while i bought it because it was said to offer healthy alternatives to everyday food, in the end i'm sorry to say it wasn't anything special. Also I didn't expect it to be vegetarian which of cours ...more
Thug Kitchen' Is the Latest Iteration of Digital Blackface
"Thug Kitchen—a brand that got popular by writing recipes in a tone reminiscent of African American Vernacular English—is run by two WASPy white people from California, Michelle Davis and Matt Holloway, whom Epicurious refers to as “masterminds.”"- Vice
"The Root refers to Thug Kitchen as “a recipe in blackface.” Belittling and commoditizing “ghetto” symbols and imagery for white gain is a form of racism and appropriation. It draws on a...more
One of my friends is allergic to eggs, another is allergic to gluten, and both don’t eat dairy or meat. I’m forever wondering what to feed them when they come here. My trainer’s wife actually got this for me because I was complaining that if you don’t eat meat, eggs, gluten, etc. what the fuck did you eat. She thinks I cuss too much so I think she was trying to be funny.
This cook book was pretty hit or miss for me. Some of the recipes were flawed, like the seasoning was off….it had either too mu ...more
Racist, super stupid trash. Don't spend a cent supporting these horrible people who think they're entertaining
