Winner of the IACP Cookbook Design Award, this New York Times bestseller is a shout to the heavens rally cry about loving food from Action Bronson, “one of the internet’s most entertaining food personalities” (GQ) and James Beard Award–winning food writer Rachel Wharton.

- Jamaican jerk
- Old-school ice cream shops
- Hand-rolled pasta from Mario
- Secrets to good eating from Massimo
- Meyhem Lauren’s Chicken Patty Potpie

Bronson writes in his introduction, “I couldn’t think of a better job. . . . The show, this book, my life is definitely something I’ve been wanting to do for a very, very, very long time, and I’m just happy that it’s come to life.”
For fans of his show and his gonzo style of food and life, there could be no better gift book than this full-color collection of all things Action Bronson.
“This book is a map of the inside of Bronson’s brain. Starting with his version of Proust’s madeleine, the ‘bagel with cheese,’ and then traveling down the THC-intensified paths of desire to include cheap street foods in the five boroughs of NYC to exotica found on his pilgrimages across the planet . . . This magnificent tome is filled with both the recognizable and the perplexing. And, best of all, I can make it at home and so can you. . . . This is a book that is at once a testament to a wild palate, to a man with a gastronomic vision, to a hip-hop artist of the top of the top category, and a student of life with legendary curiosity. Bronson is the Leonardo da Vinci of pop culture’s multi-cosmic, infinitely overstimulated, twenty-first century children of the handheld devices. At the very same moment all this is swirling around in your head, on your tongue, throughout every single muscle of your dancing, jumping being, you realize . . . F*ck!!! This is delicious.”Mario Batali
“F*cking professional musician, entertainer, beloved individual, heralded human, forever chef.”Action Bronson
“If chefs are ‘the new rock stars’ (the Times) and ‘rap is the new rock and roll’ (Kanye West), then the Roger Daltrey of the current moment is a cannonball-shaped thirty-one-year-old rapper from Flushing named Action Bronson.”The New Yorker
“Through his career on VICELAND, Bronson has become one of the internet’s most entertaining food personalities—and his book delivers just as much loud enthusiasm for eating fucking delicious things as his show by the same name.”GQ magazine
