His name is Arian Asllani, but you know him better as Action Bronson. The irreplaceable former chef turned rapper is living proof that you can achieve your goals no matter how much weed you ingest. Of course it helps that ingesting tons of weed is in fact one of Bronson’s primary goals. If you’re a fan of the outsized food-loving legend, you owe it to yourself to pick up his best-selling book: F*ck, That’s Delicious. Like the man himself, the pages within are unabashedly devoted to pleasurable mainstays like travel, food, music and marijuana.
Action Bronson vulgarly touts himself as this era’s Homer Simpson and F*ck, That’s Delicious is accordingly epicurean at heart. However, while the book does include over 40 lip-smacking recipes, don’t confuse it with your average cookbook. It’s more like a brilliant food journal filtered through personal life experiences, replete with photos, observations, advice and hilarious stories.
Of course at the end of the day the book is still mostly about the food itself. As anyone who’s seen Action Bronson on the Vice Channel is bound to know, the man likes to indulge no matter where he goes. Consequently, readers should expect coverage on everything from Big Macs and bagels to hand-rolled pastas and four star cuisine. It’s part greasy excess, part refined culinary elegance, and 100% Action Bronson.
