Editorial Reviews

Review

“Dear reader, I love Thug Kitchen's cooking. As hilariously foul-mouthed as these motherf*ckers are, I really like their passion for eating the right food, for cutting to the chase, and for knocking up good, nutritious food from scratch. Their message is simple--stop relying on the microwave, stop relying on processed crap. Whoever you are and wherever you are, get down to the markets and supermarkets, use your budget to pick up some fresh ingredients, and get cooking. So, Thug Kitchen, good luck, and keep doing what you're doing.” ―Jamie Oliver

I'll start by saying, the food in this book is amazing. Out-of-this-world good. I live in Portland, the mecca of all things vegan, and my non-vegan friends have been clawing at my door to eat these recipes instead of eating out. It is some hearty, delicious stuff.

That being said, I feel like they kind of sell it as a beginner's cookbook, and that it is not. The intro says 'Cooking vegetables takes a minute and a little finesse, but it's not &%#* rocket science.' But these recipes are complicated! They do include a lot of instructions. And big bonus points for the fact that you don't need a bunch of esoteric ingredients and fancy kitchen gadgets. Still, I haven't made an entrée yet that took under an hour. They have you making your own sauce and everything from scratch. For me, this is not weeknight cooking. And it might be challenging for new cooks to be juggling a sauce, a sauté and steaming veggies all at once. I wish they had prep and cook times listed for recipes, but I have to read the recipe and make an educated guess.

Anyway, those are just things to be aware of. The food is delicious, the tone is funny, and I have been talking it up to my friends. So, despite the drawbacks, I'm still giving it five @&%ing stars. :)

I've been following the web site for about a year. Thought I'd pick up a copy of the actual cookbook to give as a wedding gift, and I would just copy some of the recipes for myself. Well guess what, I just f**king ordered another copy for me! That's right, it's that good...and entertaining to boot.

I've had this since it came out and have now tried enough recipes from it to be able to give it a fair review. I need to preface this by saying I had only ever tried one recipe from their blog before, and found it okay but not special, so I actually didn't quite know what to expect or if I already liked their stuff. I find the swearing hilarious and that is what sold me on it; it's different and it has an edge to it and it's not all esoteric or preachy, which also attracted me to it. Plus they don't rely on a ton of obscure or expensive ingredients which I really appreciate and need for a day-to-day cookbook.

However, after having made maybe ten recipes from this book, I can say, *for me*, they are totally hit-or-miss, with the majority unfortunately being misses. I follow the recipes exactly and I am a great cook otherwise....which is why the ones I didn't like from this really stood out for me. I usually like almost everything I cook, recipes or from scratch. Some examples from this book: the cauliflower cream pasta sauce has WAAAAY too much garlic. The kind of thing you need to make sure you have no social or work engagements the next day. The Minestrone just tasted awful. I happened to make it when I had a guest for dinner and it was borderline embarrassing. I am really perplexed why it tasted so bad, because it sounded like it would be so good and obviously other people like it. Again, I followed it exactly and we get top-notch produce from the farmer's market. I dunno.

Two recipes I loved were the Chinese Spice takeout style rice dish, and the Wedding Soup (which was super labor intensive and made a huge mess to prepare and took a long time, but was fully worth it!). But that's it.

i recently received this in the mail upon ordering. I have amazon prime so i go ti t fast. Most of the reviews ive read before purchasing this book are mostly people complaining about the cursing, that they didn't know it was vegan and that the ingredients are too "fancy". so before i give my review i want to say to those people; who buys things without reviewing them?? and then complains about i t afterwards?? I mean the trailer and entire motto wrapped around this book is cursing. OBVIOUSLY its going to be cursing... how are you surprised? which leads me to another complaint ive seen which says they are offended by the term "thug". UHM, it isn't literally them supporting thugs.. its like a metaphor.. they are thugs in the kitchen, they toughen you up and motivate you in almost a boot camp sort of way. therefore they're they thugs in the kitchen telling you how to get that sh*t right..

Now as for the fancy ingredient complain.. one guy said smoked paprika was too fancy and hard to find... which is not.. at all.. it should be a staple in any cooks spice rack.. Aminos might be hard to find but i seen those even in low level market places and farmers markets or nurserys or co-ops.. health stores, nutritionists or a damn WHOLE FOODS! if you are motivated and want to change your diet you will find these and if you cannot then there's always online.. and how do you not know its vegan?? again, how do you buy a product...especially a COOKBOOK and not read detail info about it?!?! with all the gmo and crazy processes they're doing lately its surprising people aren't paying attention to minor details like that and then they complain about it like if the author set them up...*sigh*

Now for my honest review; first Id like to say im Hispanic and raised with ethnic foods.
