Snoop Dogg lights up…the stove in new cookbook

That's right, Snoop D-oh-double-gizzy is stepping out of the studio and back into the kitchen to roll up...some good food (come on, what did you think he was rolling?)

Snoop Dogg has done nearly everything in his more than 25-year – yes, it’s been that long – career.

From his legendary rap career including 17 Grammy nominations, to acting, to hosting game shows, to cameo appearances in WWE, even to a chart-topping Gospel album, he has done it all. Now, the Long Beach, Calif.-born rapper is putting out his first cookbook, From Crook to Cook, will be published by Chronicle Books on in October, according to the Los Angeles Times.

And while there will be baked goods — no, it’s not a weed cookbook — this is not Snoop’s first foray into food.

Snoop’s been the co-host of “Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party” on VH1 with Martha Stewart since 2016. The show was even nominated for an Emmy in 2017.

The show spun off of Snoop’s first appearance on Martha Stewart Living in 2008. He became a regular on the show and the duo became good friends before the 2016 show was developed.

The book will feature 50 of the Snoop’s favorite recipes, all taken from his “personal collection.” It features recipes such as baked mac and cheese, chicken and waffles, baby back ribs, chicken Caesar salad, as well as more aspirational dishes such as lobster thermidor. There is also, reportedly a recipe for Gin and Juice.

While there are no weed-based recipes in this book, Chronicle is also partnering with Snoop and his company, Merry Jane, on a line of cannabis-themed books, slated for release starting in 2020.
