Ghetto Gourmet

Okay so one of my best friends Zoe sent me a link to this article and.... you just have to read it to believe it. As she put it, "This might be the greatest article I have ever read." I do not disagree. It's unreal. And so totally awesome.

Cookin' with Coolio? Chicken Lettuce Blunts? Cold Shrimpin'? Dudes, I died when I read this article. I am not sure who will pick up on Coolio's latest incarnation as the Ghetto Gourmet, but if he is able to market himself to those who don't usually cook and get folks to turn on the stove and cook at home instead of heading to McDonald's ("I want people to know that just because you’re poor, you don’t have to eat fast food every day."), I am so all for it.

The names of the dishes alone make his new endeavors so totally awesome. Plus it really is nice to see someone whom you would truly never have expected to see in the kitchen enjoying himself and entering into the cooking world. Watch out, Bobby Flay -- Coolio's got a new gig. (Also, can't you see Paula Deen totally grooving on the Ghetto Gourmet?)


(Best line? "The conversation has been edited for a family newspaper." Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...)


  1. I think this is the best line:

    "You can cook some Kobe beef and I can cook some beef straight out of Compton, and you’d be hard pressed to make your [stuff] taste better than mine."

  2. actually you are right with your best line!! but that one is a close second!
