In between recording some new music and shooting the second season of FTD, and breaking new ground in television with Traveling the Stars: Ancient Aliens with Action Bronson we managed to wrangle our titan of new media for the Munchies audience. In this episode, Action debuts a chicken sandwich recipe, eats cevapi in Queens, Thai food in Las Vegas, and eats a 7-month dry aged steak with weed entrepreneur Berner

What can we can possibly say about having Action Bronson eat the most legendary dish, cooked by the best French chef in New York City, all the while donning a Knicks hat and a sport coat?

Action wanted to try pressed duck—or canard à la presse, as the French would say—so we got in touch with Daniel Boulud and made it happen. The dish takes about five days to prepare and is finished tableside in a silver “duck press.” Then, the sauce is made in front of the table using the juices from the duck whisked together with wine, Cognac, and some other agents of deliciousness. Chef Boulud was also nice enough to pop a bottle of 1983 Guigal Cote Rotie for the occasion, and in return, Action told him how to write a rap album.

As Action Bronson’s presence in the “Food World” becomes more permanent, new and diverse opportunities are popping up for the self proclaimed Human Highlight Reel. This time it popped up in the most beautiful location possible, Goldeneye Resort in Oracabessa, Jamaica. The event was entitled Nyam Jam, and even before Action knew exactly what it was, he agreed to attend. As stated in the video, there was not a single bad bite of food, and if you love hot sauces and various pepper spreads, then you really couldn’t do much better. Mr. Bronson honed in on a calabasa slaw prepared by visiting Puerto Rican chef, Jose Enrique and a smoked chicken sandwich from Jamaican grill master, Gariel Ferguson. His experience at Nyam Jam inspired him so much, that upon his arrival back in New York, he immediately got cow foot stew and ate in the parking lot of Home Depot. One love.

Way back in December of 2014, we took a little trip to Hawaii with Action Bronson.

Action was a guest of RVCA at their house on the North Shore to witness the Pipeline Masters surfing competition, and he curated a little barbecue for a group of surfers as well as played a show in Honolulu. In between all the rapping, grilling, and surfing, we made it to Kahuku Superette, the finest purveyor of poke on Oahu. It was a life-changing moment for Action, and its effects are still felt nine months later. With a slight lull in touring for Mr. Wonderful, Action decided to whip up some poke of his own, as well as a vegan version with golden beets that’s so good, everyone who eats it will want to proclaim you king for the day. We hope you find this video as entertaining and useful as our trip was for us. Enjoy.

What do you get when you cross a lamb neck with a fan boat and blues guitar legend? You have the fifth episode of Fuck, That’s Delicious, which takes us to New Orleans. Action Bronson had some down time between touring and recording his upcoming album, so he decided to recharge by sampling some of the Big Easy’s more contemporary culinary offerings and hearing some blues firsthand. As always, Bam Bam zeroed in on the finest fried chicken at Willie Mae’s Scotch House, the best sandwiches at Coquette, late night fare at Mimi’s and a cooking lesson from the most dynamic chef in the city, Isaac Toups, of Toups’ Meatery. If all this wasn’t enough, we managed to see some gators in the flesh and witness The Little Freddie King Blues Band do their thing. Enjoy.
