About the Author
Is there anyone more iconic and beloved than Snoop Dogg? From music to movies to TV, Snoop Dogg has been an integral part of our mainstream media for 20+ years, and there are millions of diehard Snoop fans. His Emmy nominated TV show, Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party, centers on entertaining and cooking. Not only is Snoop keeping busy with his show, he just released a new gospel album (Bible of Love), started a cannabis lifestyle company (Merry Jane), and is soon to be a bestselling cookbook author! Also being celebrated this year: the unveiling of Snoop’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame; the 25th anniversary of his debut album, Doggystyle; plus more episodes of Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party. The half hour cooking show features the hosts preparing their own dishes with celebrity guests who have included Queen Latifah. Seth Rogan, Ice Cube, 50 Cent, Kathy Griffin, Usher, and many more. The show is available via online streaming on VH1 and can be accessed internationally in Asia, Canada, Australia, and the UK.
"If the upcoming release of Snoop Dogg's new cookbook doesn't get you excited, then we don't know what will. From running to be an X Factor judge to co-hosting a cooking show with Martha Stewart, the 46-year-old rapper is always full of surprises. Now, the Doggfather is making his contribution to the rap cookbook genre with his new `From Crook to Cook' book, featuring 50 of his all-time favourite recipes including lobster, chicken and `snacks to satisfy those munchies'." -- Evening Standard
"When Snoop Dogg emerged from Long Beach, California as Dr Dre's prodigy in 1992, spitting out versus to Who Am I? (What's My Name) and cementing himself as a pioneer of West Coast rap, no one in the universe expected we'd be taking his culinary advice a couple of decades later.
But it's happened. Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. is making his debut into the cookbook world with From Crook to Cook: Platinum Recipes from Tha Boss Dogg's Kitchen. The book features 50 recipes which are apparently from Snoop's personal collection, although this won't come as a surprise to anyone who has been paying attention to the rapper's recent movements.
The 46-year-old has slowly established himself as one half of a very unlikely double act with Martha Stewart - AKA the American Delia Smith. Their show Potluck Dinner Party was even nominated for an Emmy and as a good friend of the star, Stewart even wrote the foreword in From Crook to Cook." -- Esquire.com
"The Last Meal wasn't Snoop Dogg's last meal at all. Nearly 20 years after the rapper released his fifth studio album, he's gone and written a cookbook: From Crook to Cook, published 23 October. `From Cook to Crook, Platinum recipes from tha boss Dogg's kitchen` has been eagerly awaited since it was announced earlier this year." -- inews.co.uk
"Snoop Dogg is the lifestyle guru we need right now" -- The Quartz
"[Martha] Stewart says Snoop has "surprised" her along the way with his unique cooking. He certainly has a unique way with words. "You know it's blazin' up in my kitchen," says Snoop, adding in his introduction: "Like a real seasoned playa, my tastes have evolved over the years. But while I've learned how to get down with that top-notch luxury cuisine, I'm still prone to keep it way hood with some of those LBC [Long Beach, California] classics...Trust your big homie. This is the best cookbook ever made."
It's a big claim for a book which features an entire spread about which cereals are best to eat when you're high (Lucky Charms and Honey Nut Cheerios, in case you are wondering). There are, however, some pretty good recipes: Snoop's favourite fried chicken and waffles, apple pie, tacos, mac and cheese, "billionaire's bacon," even lobster thermidor. A section dedicated to cocktails contains the original recipe for, what else, gin and juice, inspired by Snoop Dogg's 1993 song of the same name." -- i newspaper
"The rapper Snoop Dogg has a domestic side. First came his TV show with Martha Stewart, now he's written a cookbook." -- The Times Weekend
