Thug Kitchen Offers Recipes with a Heavy Dose of Hip-Hop
Thug Kitchen launched in 2012 as a domain “to inspire the shit out of some motherfuckers to eat better and have a healthier lifestyle.” It’s as if Big Ghost took his humorous album review rants to the fridge offering cheap recipes with a heavy dose of in-your-face, hip-hop influenced lingo. In a recent how-to post for a smokey eggplant dip, the glorified hood chef referred to his main ingredient as a “Grimace-looking son of a bitch” and followed it with more f-bombs than a Dennis Leary standup. Thug Kitchen doesn’t just provide a refreshingly brash take on recipes however, it also pushes readers to live a healthier life; from demanding readers to “drink some goddamn water” to suggesting visitors feed their dogs frozen peas to make their coats “shiny as fuck.” Although the collective prefers to remain anonymous, their website has garnered some well-deserved attention over the past year reaching over 384,000 Facebook likes and even being mentioned by Gwyneth Paltrow on The Rachael Ray Show.
