The rapper’s debut cookbook, “From Crook to Cook: Platinum Recipes From Tha Boss Dogg’s Kitchen” (Chronicle), tells the story of his culinary rise through recipes from his “Doggystyle” days in the early ’90s — when gin and juice flowed and fried bologna sandwiches were his go-to grub — to today, when he’s often inspired by his delightful friendship with Martha Stewart.
“Martha’s my homegirl,” he told the View earlier this year. “I’m trying to get her hip to the hood; she’s showing me about the finer things in life, Grey Poupon and stuff.”
They first teamed up when Snoop appeared on Stewart’s show in 2008, and now they collaborate on VH1’s Emmy-nominated show “Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party,” which just wrapped its second season. In the foreword for Snoop’s new book, Stewart writes that cooking with the musician has been a “remarkable learning experience.”
