F***, That's Delicious: An Annotated Guide to Eating Well by Action Bronson


F*ck, That's Delicious: An Annotated Guide to Eating Well I suppose I'm not the intended audience, here. I had to Google who the author is (a gourmet chef who became a rapper) so a good chunk of the book went right over my head, picking up speed until it was just a speck over Lake Michigan. It almost felt like I was at the birthday party for a super popular person I had never met and with whom I had no mutual friends, and while the whole crowd was cracking up together about inside jokes, I just sat there picking my nails and wishing I could find the recipes.

If you like your cookbooks more on the memoir side of things, then this is a good book for you. If, like me, you have zero interest in the chef's feelings about food and only want the recipes, then I'd recommend picking it up for free from the library and slogging through all the delightful graphic design and anecdotal stories until you can find the recipes.

So yeah, I didn't like it, but that's just me. You may think it's amazing, and more power to you, if you do. I'm sure there's a big audience for this book. I just didn't fall into it.
