Being an overweight tattoed guy myself, Action Bronson has always been a champion for the cause. On top of that, I like cooking but hate cookbooks because they're never simple enough for me, and books about food seem often seem pretentious and arrogant. This book blows all of that out the window. From travel stories, to tips on how to order at NY delis, Action Bronson assembled an interesting read. In terms of cooking, this book has the most down to earth, easy to follow recipes for food that is straight up delicious ( i.e. how to make Taco Bell's Cheesy Gordita Crunch at home.) Prepare to laugh and loosen your belt a little further.
This ain't no cookbook. This ain't no memoir. This is Action Bronson's devotional, a book about the overwhelming power of delicious--no, f*cking amazing--food. Bronson is this era's Homer, and F*ck, That's Delicious is a modern-day Odyssey, replete with orgiastic recipes, world travel, siren songs, and weed.
Illustrated, packed with images, and unlike any book in the entire galaxy, Bronson's F*ck, That's Delicious includes 40-plus recipes inspired by his childhood, family, tours, and travels. Journey from bagels with cheese that represent familial love to the sex and Big Macs of upstate New York fat camp and ultimately to the world's most coveted five-star temples of gastronomy. And: the tacos in LA. The best Dominican chimis. Jamaican jerk. Hand-rolled pasta from Mario. Secrets to good eating from Massimo. Meyhem Lauren's Chicken Patty Potpie. And more more more.
