Snoop Dogg is a renaissance man of sorts, as the Doggfather himself wears many hats, so to speak. Between his illustrious rap career, his own cannabis investment firm and even a short-lived reggae career, there’s seemingly nothing Snoop can’t do. But one of his talents that go largely under the radar is his ability to put together a mean dish.
Snoop is currently in season 2 of his hit cooking show, Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, where he and the infamous lifestyle expert put their own unique spins on some classic recipe (f you haven’t already, we suggest trying Snoop’s fried chicken recipe from season one).
However, it looks like Snoop is pursuing his own ‘solo’ chef career, in a sense, as he’s actually releasing his own cookbook in the coming months. But what’s more surprising than the actual release of the book itself, is that Snoop Dogg’s new cookbook won’t actually contain any cannabis-infused recipes.
That’s not to say it won’t be dank.
Snoop Dogg’s New Cookbook
Snoop is set to release his cookbook, From Crook to Cook: Platinum Recipes from Tha Boss Dogg’s Kitchen on October 23rd, although pre-orders are available on Amazon. In fact, the book is already the number one new release amongst celebrity and TV show cookbooks.
Again, while the book won’t contain any actual cannabis-infused recipes, it is guaranteed to provide some A-1 recipes for when you actually have the munchies (the book literally has a section titled ‘munchies’).
‘From chewy Starbursts to those glorious Frito BBQ Twists, you should have an arsenal of snacks that’ll satisfy. And of course, no party is complete without that Gin and Juice and other platinum ways to entertain,’ the book’s publisher, Chronicle Books, writes on its website.
In addition to some of the creative snack foods, Snoop’s book will contain recipes for his famous mac and cheese, a dish called “billionaire’s bacon,” (we already want in on that one), chicken and waffles, baby back ribs and even lobster thermidor.
The best part of the book? It literally reads like Snoop Dogg himself is dictating the recipes.
“I like to serve the lobster claws whole so we can all get it crackin’ together with that extra meat and wild out at the dinner table,” Snoop says in the book.
The book is currently priced at $24.95. As for Snoop’s writing career, this won’t be the last we hear (or read) from him. According to the LA Times, Snoop and his company Merry Jane are partnering with Chronicle Books for a series of marijuana-themed books, which will begin release in 2020.
For now, however, we’ll have Snoop’s dank recipes to fall back on.
“You know it’s blazin’ up in my kitchen. I’m takin’ the cookbook game higher with a dipped and whipped collection of my favorite recipes, ya dig?” Snoop said in a statement to The Guardian.
