Thug Kitchen

Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook: Eat Like You Give a F*ck (Thug Kitchen Cookbooks)

Check Price on Amazon >>

If you’d like over a hundred recipes and a bunch of useful skills, but you’re sick of dealing with ‘holier-than-thou’ cookbooks featuring women with perfect hair, Thug Kitchen is a great pick for you. The food is fresh, bright, and full of flavor; the recipes are easy to follow; and you’re sure to get a laugh as you stumble across the latest ridiculous use of a curse word in a cookbook setting.

One of our favorite things about Thug Kitchen is that it has a whole piece dedicated to properly cooking tofu. Combine their advice with a nice tofu press​ and you’re off to the races!
