So everybody probably knows Coolio from the song Gangsta's Paradise he wrote in 1995 for the movie Dangerous Minds with Michelle Pfeiffer. What I did not know until I watch Rachel (Ray) vs. Guy (Fieri) on the Food Network, is that Coolio is also a cook. He even published a cook book called
Cookin' with Coolio: 5 Star Meals at a 1 Star Price
and calls himself the Ghetto Gourmet. In this book, he will teach you how to be a Kitchen Pimp, explaining what you need in you Pimp-try...
Let me tell you: this guy knows how to cook (taught by his now deceased mother) and he ended up in the finale!
So, I decided to try to cook his Ghetto Garlic Bread, his take on Garlic Bread, made with mayonnaise. I do not have a cook book, so I tried to recreate the quantities.
In a bowl, I mixed:
- 6 tbsp of mayonnaise,
- 2 tbsp of minced garlic and
- cheese (depends how much you like).
I spread the mixture on a baguette cut in half and toasted it.
It was good, but if you do not like mayonnaise, I do not think it is for you!
Enjoy (I did)!
