Former Chef, Action Bronson to Release Cookbook, ‘F*ck, That’s Delicious’
F*ck, That’s Delicious, Debut Action Bronson Cookbook Coming Fall 2017
If you haven’t gotten enough Action Bronson lately, fret not. There will be even more of him in music and other forms of media as he’s recently inked a new deal with illustrated publisher, Abrams to release his book F*ck, That’s Delicious: An annotated Guide to Eating Well. The Action Bronson cookbook, his first is set to be released next fall. To simply call this just a cookbook does not do it justice. If it’s anything like his internet mini-series, fans can expect to get not just food recipes and pretty illustrations, but a peek into the life of the all around entertaining, “Mr. Wonderful” himself. On his show, Bronson is genuinely knowledgeable about the food he eats, from its thorough preparation all the way up until it’s served up on his dinner plate.
Bronson used to be a chef and that’s blatantly obvious when he’s explaining the correct way to filet a sea bass or enunciating the best French wine to pair with it. That coupled with his successful career as a Hip-Hop artist, his undeniably charismatic personality and well it’s kinda hard not to like him. It’ll be interesting to see how much of that screen presence can be captured in F*ck, That’s Delicious.
For those of you thinking why a cookbook, I understand. For any other artists, I would see your point. But it’s not so much of a leap for this guy after taking a listen to some of his lyrical content.
Bronson is a rags to riches story filled with vivid imagery and gritty perspective. From rough livin’ to some ridiculously outlandish shit (even by rapper standards). Dirty prostitutes and shiny guns, albeit talked about quite elegantly, to trips overseas and enjoying all that comes with being a successful Hip-Hop artist. All of which is simmering beneath a char-grilled octopus, being served up at a five-star restaurant by one of the best chefs in the world that Bronson himself probably met face to face. Hell, Bronson probably gave him a few pointers.
All and all F*ck, That’s Delicious seems to be promising, if not for the food itself but purely as entertainment. This isn’t so much about the food as rap isn’t just about the rap. It’s about having the ability to be confident enough with who you are as a person and showcasing yourself through your art. Whether it be in a song or on a dinner plate, I think Bronson has that.
Either way, the question remains. Will his fans grab up his new book like they do with his mixtapes? That’s still to be determined. Who knows what new avenues this could open up for artists in the future? The extent of business ventures for rappers usually extend to just clothing and liquor deals, except for the likes of Dre, Diddy and Jay-Z, that was all a successful rapper could hope for. It will be interesting to see if the Action Bronson cookbook will allow more rappers to enter into the culinary world.
