The bathrooms at Momofuku Ko in NYC are down one cookbook after a guest swiped one of chef David Chang's prized possessions, Cookin' With Coolio: 5 Star Meals at 1 Star Price. After Chang posted a threatening tweet towards whoever stole the book, rapper Coolio was quick to reply and offer him a new one. Coolio's cookbook emerged as a response to his YouTube cooking demos and his easy recipes inspire anyone to become a "Kitchen Pimp." In Cookin With Coolio he wrote, "My marinades add color and flavor so intense that it makes the Mona Lisa look like the Sunday edition of Marmaduke." Coolio's cookbook was in good company on the Momofuku Ko bathroom shelves, placed among the likes of Ferran Adrià and Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
