Last Minute Gifts: Thug Kitchen

Aside from buying your last-minute gifts from ShellHawk's Creations, (hint, hint), people with a sense of humor and who are absolutely not sensitive to bad language ( I really mean it!) should consider ambling over to Amazon to pick up a copy of Thug Kitchen's cookbook, Eat Like You Give a F*ck.

Thug Kitchen started out as a Tumblr blog, sharing vegan recipes liberally salted with, um, salty language. The authors kept their anonymity for years, but were finally revealed to be-- *gasp*--a white couple living in Hollywood, which to many was more offensive than the language they used on their blog. There's been a big controversy about this, which you can read about here, should you wish.

In any case, I look at this as a vegan cookbook with some great recipes and a quirky delivery, and I've enjoyed the blog for a year or so, too. I can certainly understand the uproar around it, but you, gentle reader, can make your own mind up about it.


  1. Huh. I'd wondered about the author(s) of the blog and book. Pity there was such a backlash.

    1. Yeah, I'm sort of torn between, "Oh, please, people! Lighten up! It's just a blog!" and understanding the other side of the story.

      Certainly, they didn't start it with the intention of being offensive by being white.

  2. I didn't know they had a blog, too! I follow them on Facebook - they're hilarious! And me being a former sailor and currently work around truck drivers....they don't offend me in the slightest.
    Some people do need to lighten up.
