Snoop Dogg’s Cookbook Gives Us the Munchies

Yes, the rapper is a talented cook.

Snoopzilla even has his debut cookbook, From Crook to Cook: Platinum Recipes From Tha Boss Dogg’s Kitchen, which tells of his culinary rise through recipes from “Doggystyle” days in the early ’90s ‘til the present.

While Snoop is famous for being a connoisseur of one “special herb,” his opus is actually a wholesome read, highlighting healthy and balanced meal ideas like chicken with roasted vegetables, and Caesar salad.

Here are some of the takeaways from the book:

1. Snoop McDogg

Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. grew up in Long Beach, California, where he first started working in the food industry, specifically at McDonald’s during his teenage years. He writes, “The supervisor would call me Young Eggs ’cause I could crack the eggshell with one hand.”

2. The man is a cereal eater

Snoop is crazy for Lucky Charms, as revealed through his feature on the Kid Capri-produced 1999 track “Unify.” However, his obsession with the boxed breakfasts goes way beyond that. “When it comes to kicking the day off, I’ve always been a cereal guy,” he revealed. Other than his favorite Lucky Charms, Snoop regularly dips into his other faves: Frosted Flakes, Honey Nut Cheerios, Peanut Butter Cap’N Crunch, and Wheaties.

3. A way to a Dogg’s heart is through his stomach

The American artist and his high-school sweetheart wife, Shante Broadus, have had their fair share of hardships, but it seems like their relationship is working out these days. In the book, Snoop hints at how they’re keeping the spark alive, “Sometimes the Big Dogg and his Boss Lady gotta get real sensual on date night.” This means scented candles, rose petals, and chocolate-covered strawberries: “I have my baby boo feed ’em to me in the tub.”

4. Hippie for veggies

He explained, “I don’t just be smokin’ green, I drink my greens, too,” on his recipe for Tha Smoovie, a beverage packed with fresh spinach, orange, banana, coconut water, and optional additions like kale and protein powder. Aside from healthy drinks, he’s also a fan of Caesar salads, plus a nice veggie side with his salmon dinner. “I find that some greens really set the whole meal off,” he noted.

5. His joint-rolling skills make him a sushi master

At an event in Napa Valley, last 2015, famed Japanese chef Masaharu Morimoto taught Snoop how to make a hand roll. Morimoto shared with The Post, “It was really fun. He was really into rolling sushi. And, of course, he’d had a lot of practice rolling other things.” Meanwhile, Snoop agreed, “Rolling blunts and rolling sushi are indeed similar. But you need more palm action to roll sushi as opposed to finger action to roll blunts.”
