Splashed across the cartoon-like cover is his ethos of 5 Star Meals at 1 Star Price- a condensed ideology perhaps? In my book, the self-proclaimed Ghetto Gourmet who has penned chapters such as How to become a Kitchen Pimp and Salad-Eatin' Bitches has safely set the tone from page 1.
A sneaky peek inside the cover reveals Coolio's culinary philosophies, including several outbursts of Shaka Zulu... so is he a kitchen warrior in his own right? An interview with the Boston Globe explores some of the influences behind his acclaimed catchphrase, and why this rapper has donned a chef's hat and pen to become a cook and author.
So, with Christmas in mind, can you see this book nestled in between Nigella Lawson and Delia Smith? Perhaps not... But maybe this ghetto gourmand could be starting a new revolution in food making cooking hip and accesible for all.... the jury's still out on this one i'm afraid- Shaka Zulu!
