Today, Snoop Dogg announced his first cookbook, From Crook to Cook, to be published by Chronicle Books, and distributed by Hardie Grant in Australia. The irreverent cookbook is slated for October 2018 release and will feature 50 of the legendary Snoop Dogg’s all-time favorite recipes straight from his personal collection.
“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?” says Snoop Dogg.
Organized by meals and occasions, the recipes will range from OG staples like Baked Mac & Cheese, Chicken and Waffles, and Baby Back Ribs to upper echelon fare such as Lobster Thermidor and Filet Mignon. Weeknight favorites like Soft Flour Tacos and Chicken Caesar Salad will have readers turning to Snoop any day of the week. And of course, the book would not be complete without a Gin and Juice recipe and snacks to satisfy those munchies. Full of Snoop’s trademark personality, his debut cookbook is brimming with delicious cannabis-free recipes and entertaining ideas from the beloved rapper and celebrity.
Snoop Dogg first showed the world his cooking chops when he guest-starred on Martha Stewart’s show, Martha, in 2008. The dynamic duo are appearing in their Emmy-nominated Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party on VH1, which is currently airing its second season.
“Snoop Dogg and Chronicle Books are about to Snoopify the cookbook world and kitchens around the world,” said Christine Carswell, Publisher of Chronicle Books. “Snoop’s book is full of his iconic creative energy – it’s as much fun to read as it is to cook from.”
“Creating this book together has been a total trip, and I can’t wait for everyone to start cooking with Snoop this October.” said Camaren Subhiyah, the Senior Editor who acquired the title for Chronicle Books.
The collaboration with Snoop Dogg and Chronicle Books doesn’t end here. Through a partnership with his media startup MERRY JANE and Chronicle Books, they will launch a line of cannabis-themed books together with an expected roll out of Spring 2020.
