Cookin' with Coolio
There’s only one thing that Coolio’s been doing longer than rapping: cooking. His recipes are built around solid comfort foods with a healthy twist that don’t break the bank. You can’t find fusions like Blasian (black Asian) or Ghettalian (ghetto Italian) in restaurants, but you can have them cooking away in your kitchen faster and easier than ordering takeout.Coolio started making thirty-minute meals when he was ten years old and has since developed a whole new cuisine: Ghetto Gourmet. Start your Ghetto Gourmet adventure with some “Soul Rolls,” follow-up with “Finger-Lickin’, Rib-Stickin’, Fall-Off-the-Bone-and-into-Your-Mouth Chicken,” and finish off with “Banana Ba-ba-ba-bread” sweetened with golden honey. Chapters such as “How to Become a Kitchen Pimp,” “Chillin’ and Grillin',” and “Pasta Like a Rasta” will guide you through creating five-star meals at a star-star price. As Coolio says, “All you need is a little bit of food, and a little bit of know-how.”
