Cookin with Coolio

Though it was probably the most entertaining web-based cooking show ever, Cookin’ With Coolio, which ran for a few months last year, was never all that helpful when it came to teaching viewers how to actually cook a dish. The weird fusion of cooking show and hip-hop video was especially heavy on the latter, making it nearly impossible to follow an actual recipe.

Still, if you ever wondered how to make Coolio’s Fork Steak (a chunk of beef so tender, he claimed you could cut it with a fork), or his Westside Tilapia, a new book will make the whole process much clearer. Cookin’ With Coolio: 5 Star Meals at a 1 Star Price by “Coolio the Ghetto Gourmet” hits bookshelves on November 17 and will feature those recipes and more, as well as additional content, like a chapter entitled “How to Become a Kitchen Pimp” and another devoted to cooking “Pasta Like a Rasta,” which is something I’ve been attempting for years with only limited success.
