Snoop Dogg is getting ready to release his first cookbook, and surprisingly, it doesn’t contain any marijuana recipes.
From Crook to Cook, which comes out October 23, is filled with some of Snoop’s favorite recipes, from lobster thermidor to waffles. And of course, gin and juice. If you watched Snoop’s cooking show with Martha Stewart, Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, you know the guy likes to cook — and is even skilled in the kitchen.
“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.
Book publisher Chronicle Books says while the recipes will “satisfy those munchies,” don’t expect anything like pot brownies. But who needs spiked baked goods when you have Frito BBQ twists?
And while there won’t be any cannabis recipes this time around, Chronicle has revealed that they’ll be partnering with Snoop’s media start-up, Merry Jane, to release a series of cannabis-themed books scheduled to hit bookstores in 2020.
Snoop joins fellow hip-hoppers 2Chainz, Coolio, and Kelis, in writing a cookbook. And as Uproxx puts it, “Action Bronson and Lil’ B both have some pretty dope web cooking shows that you can check out while you wait on Mr. Broadus’s opus.”
