Shannon’s Kitchen: Healthy Food You’ll Actually F**king Eat

We rated this book:


With a title like this, I expected this to be an irreverent book. However, since it’s a cookbook, I also expected to find good, healthy, recipes that might be a hit with my family.

Unfortunately, I felt like this book was more about shocking the reader with vulgarity than actually providing recipes to follow and prepare. The vulgarity schtick got old fast, but it isn’t just kept in the intros to the recipes. Some of the recipes themselves incorporate it. One recipe calls for a cucumber the size of a (imagine a male body part that resembles a cucumber). The reader is often told to “whizz the shit” out of ingredients in their food processor. I get it. The author is edgy. She’s funny. But if I’m a newbie cook, what is the actual definition of “whizz the shit”?

It’s also worth pointing out that the author is Australian and, flipping through the recipes, it appears some of the ingredients could be tricky for American cooks to procure.

This might be a good choice for more competent cooks who don’t mind constant swearing and sexual innuendo liberally sprinkled throughout recipes and their instructions.
