    Michelle Davis and Matt Holloway are the co-authors of the infamously aggressive vegan food blog Thug Kitchen. Michelle is responsible for the award-winning recipes behind the brand and co-writes the side-splitting copy with Matt, their resident photographer.

    After winning Saveur’s Best New Food Blog of 2013, the duo decided to make it official by writing a book. Their first cookbook, Thug Kitchen: Eat Like You Give a F*ck, was a New York Times-bestseller and remained on the list for nearly 100 weeks since it debuted in 2014. Their second book, Thug Kitchen: Party Grub, released October 2015, was also an instant New York Times-bestseller and was named one of Amazon’s Best Books of 2015. Both books have been translated into more than seven languages and counting, and their viral cookbook trailers have amassed over 20 million views. Their third cookbook, Thug Kitchen 101: Fast as Fuck, was released October 11, 2016 and immediately hit the New York Times bestseller list.
